Hi, I have been having a problem with not being able to send email Messages receiving emails are not a problem. Checked with Telstra for settings and a password re-set all ok. Can send an email using Telstra's on line app. Turned off Norton and Nord VPN just in case it was a problem with them also rolled back T/Bird to Version Thunderbird 102.5.0. Was working with that before. Can You help? More info on system, T/Bird settings on Pics. Cheers Martin

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.

If I receive a mail and want to forward it, or reply with some additional recipient from my address book, this turns out to be extremely tedious:

  1. open the address book
  2. search for that address
  3. click on it, so I see the possible actions to the right
  4. go for "Write" - as if I wanted to write a message to that person
  5. "copy" name and mail address from this dummy mail and "paste" it into the real one
  6. close the dummy mail

I know that SOME mail addresses would appear also directly in the to: or cc:/bcc: field if I just start typing the name, but never those that are in my main address book or the ones which I use most often!

  • Bulleted list itemIn other words: I do not really understand what the criterion is for mail addresses to appear or not. And what I can do to trigger Thunderbird to go for those that I really use most often!
  • Bulleted list itemAnd if that is not possible: Is there a shorter way to at least copy&paste a mail address from the address book to some place, without opening a dummy mail first?

I have been using Thunderbird with my earthlink.net account for many years. Yesterday they sent me an email saying that my password had been updated but I hadn't done that. After that I haven't been able to connect via Thunderbird. When I enter my password, Thunderbird asks me to try again. After I've tried several times, I get the message in the screen shot which is attached.

I had accepted an update from Thunderbird several days ago and had no problems since then.

Nothing else has changed although I did turn power off a couple of days ago to my router, computer, et al. But everything came back up ok and was running well.

I really think that this is Earthlink's problem and have called them. After looking at things, they claim that it is a Thunderbird problem so now I need some ammo to go back at them.

It's too bad that I can't call someone at Thunderbird.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

PS. I added the files as jpg's but they are claiming that they are png's.

During a recent outage Thunderbird "send" function was disabled. This has happened before during previous Internet service maintenance On this occasion the thunderbird .exe program was employed which resulted in creation of a new email service, even though email address was the same etc.. The new account 'eventually' reloaded the inbox with current messages, however the address book is empty and the file structure of saved info is also deleted. Q. Is it possible to recover the data which did not reload ??? email address is "[edited email from public] @tpg.com.au"

Is it possible to edit the Subject line in an incoming message?

Let me explain. I send an email with a Subject line that is relevant to the message. Some weeks or months later, the recipient decides they need to email me about a different subject. Rather than opening a compose window and typing a Subject that is appropriate to the new message, they simply find the old message from me, and click on Reply. So when I receive that reply, it still has the old Subject line. This plays havoc with my filing system, and makes it virtually impossible for me to find the message at a later time. This happens surprisingly often.

I know I can select "Edit as new message". This opens the message in a compose window, from where I can edit the Subject. The problem is, when I then save the message, it shows my own email address in the From line rather than that of the person who sent it. This just adds to the difficulty of keeping track of messages.

I hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance for your help.

I have a gmail account I have been using with other third-party applications for access - however none local to my machine. I installed thunderbird and have been attempting to connect with my gmail account.

I have gone through the help and nothing seems to exactly match what I am seeing.

1. Initial account add - go through the steps of adding the gmail account. An external browser launches after entering my login details to thunderbird prompting me to log into my google account and give permission for thunderbird to access. After doing this the add-account page complains that something is wrong with my credentials. Have tried several times - stuck in a loop.

2. Forced the account to add and checked settings for oauth2 were as described in many other posts on this topic. Attempting to get email I get the external browser for logging into google and providing thunderbird with permissions. Once I have clicked 'allow' thunderbird reports:

authentication failure while connecting to server to imap.gmail.com.

in a pop-up.

I have tried switching off antivirus protection - still no dice.

I am at a loss. I have been poking around for a couple of hours with ideas from multiple posts on gmail connection issues to no avail. The only thing that might have some relevance I have been able to find is in the error console:

... 15:54:41.048 Unknown Collection "thunderbird/password-recipes" RemoteSettingsClient.jsm:143 15:54:41.172 NS_ERROR_NOT_IMPLEMENTED: Component returned failure code: 0x80004001 (NS_ERROR_NOT_IMPLEMENTED) [nsIRequest.name] 12 OAuth2.jsm:171

Looking forward to your insight and support.

Thanks in anticipation

When the upgrade from v91 to v102 came for my Windows 10 desktop, I said, "Go ahead!" After restarting the client, Tbird would go to check new messages and would just keep spinning in its progress area without downloading new messages - which I knew were there. Eventually I had to downgrade back to v91, which thankfully worked well.

I have a Ubuntu 20.04LTS desktop that my partner uses. It was going along fine with v91 but v102 came last night and I didn't notice in the list of packages to be upgraded until it was too late. Now they have the same problem! I haven't downgraded yet since the process will be a little more involved in Ubuntu and I would like to solve the underlying problem so I can keep upgrading to newer versions without worry in the future.

There is a wrinkle to my problems in that both setups are a little unconventional. My mail host eschews passwords in favor of SSH keys. What I've had to setup - and it's been working for about 15 years or more - is an SSH tunnel via an xinetd service. On my Windows box I use Cygwin and for Ubuntu I just use regular old bash and the services directly. When I encounter this new problem upon loading Tbird, I can telnet to my custom port on localhost and see that the connection is being made to the remote IMAP server. I can even list things with a little manual interaction. I really have no idea why it is not working.

I have a wireshark recording from when my Windows installation stopped working, but I would be hesitant to share too many personal details on a public forum.

My mail host/server is using Ubuntu's uw-imapd version 8:2007e~dfsg-3.2ubuntu1 (from Ubuntu 22.04.1).

The Address Book for the new Thunderbird Linux has become a train-wreck. Numerous things that were easy are now cumbersome. For example, in order to add an existing contact to an existing list in Personal Address Book, I had to create an entirely new list because there is no way to add an existing contact to an already existing list. If there is a way, I sure couldn't find it.

I have signature set for an account and in "Composition & Addressing" settings I have "start my reply above the quote" and "place my signature bellow my reply (above the quote)" set.

When I start to write a new message, editor window opens with following composition:

  • one empty line on the top (here I start to write the text)
  • signature separator "--"
  • signature text

But when I start a "reply" or "forward" on existing message, editor window opens with following composition:

  • signature text
  • quote of the message being forwarded or replied

So on "reply" and "forward" scenario I'm missing the initial empty line followed by signature separator line. When I start to write a reply, it is conflicting with signature and also is formatted as signature, so I need to delete signature completely or adjust formatting manually.

This was not an issue with older Thunderbird release, this behavior is present only in recent versions. Any idea, how it could be fixed?

This morning I clicked the button to download my latest e-mails. As they hit the In Box all the messages already there just disappeared! Gone! Not in In Box, not in Trash, not anywhere! Some of them were important business messages requiring a reply. This is a disaster!

Is there any way to recover these lost messages?

Is there any way to prevent this from happening again, short of abandoning Thunderbird and finding a new e-mail program?

I have been using Thunderbird for a couple weeks now, and today is the first time this happened.
