My Windows 10 PC has experienced a Blue Screen error and I can't load Windows. I have been able to access and transfer my perspnal data, but not my applications. So while I have recovered everything else, I need to recover my Thunderbird Private Folders and Contacts. Accessing my data is hard enough when Windows is running (what I view as a major design shortcoming in Thunderbird) but I cannot see how to access it when Windows won't load.

I have been able to set up a new PC with all my data and have reinstalled my applications, but of course the new copy of Thunderbird knows nothing of my Private Folders and Contacts from my old PC. The transfer was done by copying my data from the old PC's SSD to a new PC's SSD. But I can't find a way to copy the thunderbird program with my embedded folders and contacts.

Help please?

(And Developers, please find a better way to store, backup and recover Private Folders, Contacts and other personal data)

In the recent versions of Thunderbird (102.2.x, 102,3,3, 106.0b5, and possibly earlier) searching messages no longer works on my home system.

On the main message screen, the Quick Search field used to let me quickly filter out messages with a subject or sender matching whatever I put in that field. It would in fact start filtering matches as I'm typing. This no longer happens, with multiple email addresses (such as GMail, or my ISP).

If I bring up the full search dialogue while on a folder from one of my email accounts (so that it should be able to guess which account I'm searching in) the "Search for messages in" field is greyed out. with the text "No available folders".

The thing is, my work computer with Thunderbird 102.2.0 still has functional search (both Ouick Find and the full search dialogue).

ThunderBird 102.7.0 >Tools > General > Colors : I customized: Text & BkGnd, Reader can't read Text

Hello,

Received E-Mail Text & Background Color Problem

Win7 Pro ThunderBird 102.7.0

>Tools > Settings > General > Colors : I changed the default colors to: BackGround = Dark Blue ForeGround (text) = Yellow

The receiver of the sent e-mails, sees, black color text on Dark Blue BackGround. The reader can not read the text without highlighting as though desires to 'copy' the text.

The only setting configuration that remedies that matter, I configure in my ThunderBird editor: Text = Black BackGround = White Checked: Use System Colors

I prefer dark theme for everything, but when I configure that, receiver is unable to read my sent e-mails.

Is there a fix for this?

I am trying to upload some emails via Thunderbird into an IMAP mailbox. I'm having to do this in 2 steps as they are stored in an MBOX file Step 1 is to load them all into a local folder in Thunderbird - no problems there, all 2279 emails load Step 2 is to copy them folder in IMAP mailbox. However, many of them disappear. They are all phishing emails and I believe some (or all) of those that disappear have viruses with them - however, I need to keep them for testing. I can't find anywhere in Thunderbird where they may be being scanned.

I'm running Thunderbird in a Linux VM on a Windows machine. I've excluded the directory where the VM is stored from checking by my AV software. I've also (just in case) disabled my AV software entirely, but this hasn't made any difference.

I've found where Thunderbird scans for phishing emails and turned that off. I can't find anything in Thunderbird that scans for viruses, or if it does what happens to them.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi - I've been trying to set up caldav and carddav ever since I deployed my iredmail server with sogo installed. I notice on my phone and through the sogo interface I can save cards, save calendar items, etc and observe them with no issues. On thunderbird windows 10 x64 102.7.0 (and earlier) I've not been able to see any items from caldav or carddav - even though the app seems to be aware of the connections and isn't complaining. For instance, I added a calendar item in thunderbird for a caldav acct and see the item in my phone, but not on my thunderbird calendar. Also, I see cards exist in my carddav acct in thunderbird, but the data is all blank. photo attached. I've triple checked the config, and everything looks good. Any ideas on where I should diagnose this further?

Thanks

I have a message that is marked "Ignore". It's a single message, not part of a thread. When right-clicking on the message header if "Ignore Thread" is ticked or unticked makes no difference, and the red circle icon remains : removing the tick by "View" -> "Threads" -> "Ignored Threads" always means the message disappears. I've tried using "k" to undo the "ignore" - that doesn't work either. I can't work out how to undo the "ignore" for this message, meaning I always have to have viewing ticked for ignore threads, which I don't want. How do I undo the ignore on this message?

Mail filter does not work when checking mail but works from a different folder

I have several filters that I think have worked in the past, but are now a bit broken in Thunderbird 102.6.1 on MacOS.

When checking mail, the filter(s) seem to be bypassed. The filter(s) are supposed to direct a message with a certain content to the trash. But since the filter appears to be disfunctional duriing email checking, it lands in my folder called "Inbox Consolidated", a function of the "last resort" filter in my filter chain.

I can then manually execute "run filters on message" on the errant message and it then goes to the trash as expected.

For example, the filter is in the attached screenshot. I've tested its conditions on a message that definitely contains the text "Mail filter: Loan" and that works fine manually. But when I receive a message containing this text it does not go to the trash. It seems the filter was bypassed during checking. I have tried putting the filter all the way to the top in the filter list, and this still does not help. I have three other similar filters with the same issue. I really think this is a bug. Thanks for any help.

ThunderBird 102.7.0 Inserts 2x & 4x line-feeds in reply texts, how to stop it?

Hello,

Win7 Pro ThunderBird 102.7.0:

When I copy sent e-mails to WRITE editor or REPLY to e-mails, the editor inserts multiple line-feeds when I break the line length with ENTER key. I do so for better readabilty. I desire to control the text formatting as I deem fit.

The problem also exists when I copy text, from other text applications, that I have pre-stripped of binary formatting codes, so that the only codes remaining in the ASCII text data are 0X0D and 0X0A (CRLF) on the line ends. I am unable to format the lines as I deem fit.

ThunderBird editor, depending on various config settings, will either insert 2x line-feeds or 4x line-feeds, for what I desire is 1x line-feed.

Is there a strategy to fix that problem? I scoured the InterNet for solutions, for which I have tried, and none so far work.

Thanks in advance - Fractal_One
