After an upgrade of Thunderbird Around 12/27-28/21 almost all of the contents of my emails before the upgrade have disappeared, 2012 to 12/27/21. Emails after that date were sent to a new folder, Inbox2 and they are readable. I have since had new emails rerouted to the main Inbox. How can I restore the contents?

FYI - I tried repair folder and all of the emails vanished. I have since restored the last backup. All emails are from AOL; no other backups exist before 1/20/22 without going to my old PC which was last used in July so I would still lose everything between then and 12/27/21 to 1/14/22.

Hi, Vols! ~

Yeah. So, during the day today, while I was on the phone and tending to a matter that involved navigating on certain Browsers and simultaneously cross-referencing back to my email in Tb, suddenly my Inbox purged off about 19k emails, which don't seem to have been moved to any other of my files. They just were dumped and vanished!

Interestingly, my Inbox is now constantly maintaining at 10,000 even, even as new emails keep coming...

Why would this happen? And, can they be retrieved???

Thanks everybody!

This is what Thunderbird keeps saying.

Sending of password for user llkm3 did not succeed. Mail server pop.verizon.net responded: [SYS/TEMP] Server error - Please try again later.

Then this: Login to server pop.verizon.net with username llkm3 failed.

I try again later and it still does not bring my messages from aol.com

I ran Eudora for decades. Finally at the start of 2021 I migrated to T-Bird thru the long process of starting with old T-bird and importing old Eudora emails and then working up in versions. Now running 91.4.1 . I use it professionally and have many clients.

In other words I have been running T-bird every day for a year.

My basic issue here is the Search messages functionality has improved a wee little bit thru the newer version but it still is so crippled and lacking. As one user posted in frustration, (paraphrasing) "I do not want to know how to do all sorts of tweeks and cntl-key stuff. I just want to select search and only type one thing in and see EVERY email that has it IN ANY PART OF THE EMAIL". I am the same way and usually that is fine and I do not normally need to refine the search.

But that is so hard to achieve. Another user I saw posted in frustration with the lack of the "any header" search option and the response from t-bird folk is just to add all the to, from , subject, body things in the dialog. REALY?

Then the next step is what email folders am I interested in? Another awkward thing in t-bird. After a year I still cannot get what I want. I hate the format. The "display as list" thing is weird. And it is just returning false info on some searches.

To find a good example of search run Eudora 7 search. One tab gives you quick and easy control over the folders and the other quick and easy control of the search params with results. Super easy to get specific with searches. Thus a novice beginner can use and a proficient expert can use.

So why cannot the t-bird developer folk use Eudora search as a template for a nice search within the t-bird product? JUST START FROM SCRATCH!

SEARCH IS SO CRITICAL TO ME THAT NOW I RUN BOTH EUDORA AND T-BIRD ALL THE TIME SO THAT WHEN I NEED TO SEARCH I USE EUDORA: CRAZY!!!

So get the picture here? We need a decent search like Eudora used to have.

I have an AOL email account converted from verizon and due to some changes AOL made i had to setup a new account. i found some instructions and unfortunately backed up appdata/local/thunderbird/profiles/XXXXXXX.default instead of roaming/thunderbird/profiles/xxxxxxx.default. I then created a new profile in thunderbird which created a new account without my email history. I then restored the local saved xxxxxxx.default but it did not bring over history and that is now gone at AOL too. Can i do anything with that local xxxxxxx.default file to bring back my history?

I have been trying to download send emails in Thunderbird from the Verizon AOL.com servers. When I try to download emails, I get a message that says:

Sending of password for user dhanig2@verizon.net did not succeed. Mail server pop.verizon.net responded: [SYS/TEMP] Server error - Please try again later.

I have checked my server settings, and they appear correct: pop.verizon.net at port 995 smtp.verizon.net at port 465

I can use my browser to see my emails, and I can use the AOL app on my iPhone, so I know I am still using the correct password. I have deleted and reinstalled Thunderbird, but the problem with Thunderbird persists.

What do I need to do to solve this problem?

Hi, Thunderbird did an automatic update yesterday, I have now lost all emails from August to yesterday (December), some had some important information in them which I need. Any idea on how I get them back. I did another update today to 91.4 in the hope the lost emails would 'come back' but sadly not so. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

Gmail: I sometimes receive emails which are visible on my Gmail app, but do not show in the inbox of Thunderbird. There is a temporary 1 against the mail box, but no mail is visible as received. This seems to occur if Gmail message coming back is part of a conversation. Even forwarding the email from my phone app to my email address does not always work. Any Ideas?

Since I installed THUNDERBIRD 91.5 I have the issue that new emails are marked as "read" (not in bolt letters) before I even open the new mail. On the other hand if I mark the mail as "unread" it will stay that way forever, if necessary and that's the way new mail should be. I've been using Thunderbird for over 20 years and never had an issue like this and I can't find a setting that would change that. Any Idea ? Thanks
