Thunderbird keeps saying the Network Solutions email certificates are bad

TB 102.5.0 (64-bit) on Win10 I'm getting repeated notices that my e-mail accounts with Network Solutions don't have a proper "certificate" when I try to send an email. I get a popup window stating so, and asking me to "permanently" choose the exception. It doesn't matter how many times I tell the fool thing to accept the exception "permanently". I still keep getting the notice every few times. Since the glitch is not consistent, I don't have an image of one to put here. Not only that, I have to send the email twice after doing so. TB refuses to send the email the first time after choosing the exception, but allows it the second. I don't know anything about "certificates" and am sick of getting popup notices about them. I doubt that the problem is with Network Solutions email accounts. This reminds me of years ago, when I tried to upgrade to WinXP. It kept interrupting my work to give me popup security notices that I didn't understand and couldn't do anything about. If I remember correctly, I took it back to Sam's Club and replaced it with Win2000. Problem solved. Never mind that XP was supposed to be better. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Hello,

(excuse my English).

I receive properly most of my emails in Thunderbird but there is this one from "Wetransfer support" (support@wetransfer.zendesk.com ) I cannot. I receive it on the email service provider server, but not in the Thunderbird client. I just have a notification ("1" next to the main folder). When I send copies of it to myself from the server, it is the same issue. Strangely, when I copy paste the content in a new message, it passes through. Everything happens as if there was something inside the body of the message that Thunderbird did not like. Some little pictures inside are not copied in the copy/paste process, so maybe it is the cause. What's your opinion?

Best regards, Samuel

How do I add a password to log into mozilla.news.org as a newsgroup in TB 102.5.0

When I started TB 102.5.0 today it prompted me to enter a password for my newsgroup account. I had set up to access mozilla.news.org NNTP items a few years ago and this is the first time I've been prompted to enter a password. I thought they must have made a change requiring us to use the new Firefox account for this but I can't find any way in Account Settings to do this. The option to "Manage Newsgroups" no longer appears on the main TB page and clicking on Account Settings for my Mozilla News configuration does not show any option to specify a password. I see options setting up a new NEWSGROUP account. A search found a few folks talking about this but they mentioned clicking the now missing "manage newsgroups".

Is mozilla.news.org still supported?

For some reason I am starting to get emails addressed to other people. To be clear, our names are similar but not exact. For example, the email is addressed to [edited] @AOL.com or something close to it. The email addressed to that person shows up in my Inbox.I would like to know how can I stop this from happening and why did it start in the first place. Also, has this happened to other users? Is there anyway to test my email to see if it has been compromised?

bold textHello,

I set up my own ocsp server thanks to openssl. I have a rootCA and some client certificates. Inside those client certificates, there is a authority info paragraph with the URL for the HTTP server and the protocol OCSP. Unfortunately I did not manage to force Thunderbird to send the OCSP request toward my own OCSP server. Instead it's sending the request to another server. Anyone knows how to redirect Thunderbird's request to a specific OCSP server ?

Thank you

I have used Thunderbird for many years with no problems. Just recently, when I open Thunderbird, a box asks for password for news.mozilla.org., with no option to set a new password. I don't recall ever having set a password and very rarely use the newsgroup. When I press cancel the box goes away and everthing appears to work as normal. Any advice please?

I am on Thunderbird 102.5.0 (32-bit) The authentication of my University of Glasgow e-mail account has to be change to OAuth2. I have tried to do so but there is a problem. When I try to change the Outgoing Server (SMPT) from Normal Password to OAuth2, the drop menu does NOT contain the option 'OAuth2'. The 'OAuth2' option is available in the Security Settings Authentication method drop menu.

I have made the recommended checks on cookies and java script etc. They are set as instructed.

I had to change my password with provider Shaw. Now when I start Thunderbird e-mail, and it asks for my password, it does not remember it, even though when I look at the saved passwords, it is there. I have to enter my password every time. I can then access my e-mail accounts with Shaw, but it is a nuisance.

Any suggestions?

Does Thunderbird support OAuth2 in Verizon. I note that smtp authentication is an available choice in TB for AOL accounts but not for Verizon when editing SMTP setup. I am running Windows 7 and Thunderbird 102.5.0 (32-bit).

App passwords seem to be no longer available so a work around then is needed. Is OAuth2 the way.

Hi- I am new and - hm a bit confused : TB (102 in Linux) ist protected with a primary PW. Starting TB, without the PW I am able change properties of the the keys in TB manager, e.g. confidential ect. Something missunderstood ?

Further questions : to what extent are the keys protected against an attack, while running TB or even while not running TB? And are the keys/PW protected also in the TB backupfile (profile.zip) ?

Less important but also a question. The protected TB (Primary PW) without PW lets everybody see all emails in every folder, except the new, not downloaded/deleted ones. Is this intented ?

Thanks for help & your time - to give me a better understanding. Cheers MGO

I still have not been able to connect to gmail with Thunderbird. I have researched and checked all I could find. Following is the connection info: Imap, SSL/TLS, OAuth2, 993 Smtp, SSL/TLS, OAuth2, 465 javascript true cookies allowed When it starts up the Google account screen comes up and I am able to enter the email address and password and allow Thunderbird to access gmail. After this nothing more happens. No passwords get asked for and no passwords get saved in Thunderbird's in Thunderbird's cache. When I delete the account and reenter it a message comes up, "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password." Any idea how I can get this working?

Sometimes when I use Firefox I choose to send the webpage I'm on directly to Thunderbird using the "Email a link to this page" feature, usually to myself so I can easily reference it later. There are sometimes a registered trademark symbol - the R w/ a circle around it - in the subject line created from that link. Specifically from Menard's where there is the R symbol after the Menard's name in the subject line. And then when I then send that email the message to myself it gets shunted off into the Junk folder.

Any way I can set Thunderbird to permanently ignore the R trademark symbol when classifying junk email?
