How can I add a new address to a sublist without apparently losing all the addresses already in it? They eventually came back of their own accord but not before I had almost had a heart attack... I'm not game to add any more in case the rest disappear and don't come back.

My address book has several sender addresses. One has crept in that I did not enter and do not recognise. It self selects whenever I send a mail from the address book, luckily Thunderbird does not send so I do pick it up. How do I delete the address, I can find no way of doing this.

I have just switched from MS Mail to Thunderbird. I imported my contacts list, and it seems fully stored and readable in Contacts. However, when I select a contact and click on the 'To' box, the name loads into the email To line, but not the email address. The name is red. What am I doing wrong, or is there something Ihave still to set up?

Running Win 10 (22H2) and Thunderbird 102.5.0 (32 bit).

Adding Yahoo to email, POP server. Using recommended server configurations. When clicked on DONE, a popup browser from Yahoo occurs with username filled in, then asks to prove not a robot (captcha), then asks for password. Finally agree for Thunderbird to access Yahoo email. Goes to check login and after some time presents the message "Unable to login at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password." Repeated attemps goes through the cycle of the popup from Yahoo to give Thunderbird access to Yahoo email.

An email is sent by Yahoo indicating a sign in on Thunderbird. Clicked on Advanced settings to save settings. When click on Get Messages the Yahoo popup appears the give Thunderbird access to Yahoo email. This is repeated every time for Get Messages. Email at Yahoo says sign on Thunderbird has accurred.

No messages are ever dowloaded to Thunderbird. Yahoo seems to know an attempt was made to sign on to Yahoo with Thunderbird but Yahoo does not accept credentials to download the emails to Thunderbird.

What other settings need to be checked to make this work.

On the mail tab, the email list's "Subject" column is not left-justified (or maybe it's left-padded). However, my other columns like "Correspondents" and "Date" are left-justified. Because of the extra left-hand space in the "Subject" column, the subject line shown is reduced by about 5-7 letters.

I have my layout setup as vertical panes. For ease-of-reading/navigation I won't be switching over to a horizontal layout, even though I can have wider columns in that layout.

Please refer to the yellow-highlighted area on the attached picture.

Is there a solution for having "Subject" line up like the other columns?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.  :-)

We have used Thunderbird for 20+ years, and have had no problems until the latest update yesterday. Now, we can only send e-mail from one of the 2 Comcast accounts for which we are using Thunderbird. If we try sending from the other account, the following error message shows up: "Sending of the message failed. An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: Please ensure your email address and authenticating user match when sending messages. Please verify that your email address is correct in your account settings and try again." I have gone through all settings, and noticed that, for both "identities", the server is configured to use the same user name, when the other email account has a different email address. I have tried editing the server settings, adding a new identity, and no luck. Very frustrating. Again, this started yesterday after Thunderbird performed an update.

Is the syntax for the address book query described anywhere? (as in mail.addr_book.autocompletequery.format) Specifically, I want to match fields "starting with" the input value, not "containing" it. I also want to prefer address from one specific address book (i.e. list those addresses first) without completely excluding addresses from the others.

Marking Emails as "Spam" (the Flame) Thunderbird does NOT move them to Spam Folder! I just leaves it in the Inbox!! This does NOT happen on my older install on the Win 10 notebook!

Also the "Run Junk Mail Controls" has never done a damn thing on any install I have, Thunderbird NEVER Learns and never blocks or send SPAM to the Spam Folder! Both Yahoo and Hotmail/Live/ etc have "Block senders" in their Email apps, when is Mozilla gong to get Up To Speed here!!??

Since shortly I notice that the color of the original text of a message that I forward or that I reply on, changes from black to blue. Someone might have thought that that is a nice new feature, but the blue is so light that it cannot be printed to a readable form. How can I change that in Thunderbird, so that I can keep the original black color and print a forwarded text?

Thanks in advance!

When I started my computer this morning and opened Thunderbird, it showed an update to 102.5 32bit. My Thunderbird is blank yet I can hear it say I have new mail. I am on an Acer laptop running Win10, 64bit. I have restarted Thunderbird and computer more than once, but when I click HELP and "about Thunderbird" it shows "restart to update Thunderbird".

UPDATED I downloaded 102.5 64 bit, but still have the same result. Only the folder column shows, but nothing in it. The same result when I click HELP and "about Thunderbird" it shows "restart to update Thunderbird". I can still open my address book, and my calendar...I really don't want to lose either of those. I am adding two more images, one a screenshot of the opened Thunderbird. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hello,

Before posting this question I tried different searches and I couldn't find something or someone who had this problem.

Suddenly today I realize in one of my accounts, I have 12 accounts, in TB that the sub-folders of different folders are all showing flat at the root level. The other folders and sub-folders still have the normal email in it, but those folders doesn't have anything.

I tried the procedure for ghost folders, deleting and adding the account. I even went on the profile folder and deleted cache file etc... Nothing. I de-installed, deleted the profile folder, deleted the data folder (I store datas separately), added the account and bingo... all those frigging folders are back.

FYI: I added this account into Outlook and I don't have those folders, neither on my Android phone.

TB: 102.5.0 (64-bit) Eng MacOS: 10.15.7 Eng

Can some one help me on fixing this?

Thank you
