I've just installed the latest Thunderbird, using the default imap settings and my known good gmail password. When I press 'Done', Google asks me to log in and give permission to Thunderbird to access my gmail account. This goes fine, but Thunderbird then reports that the password is rejected. I know that it is good, and I can't see anything wrong. Everything seems to be set correctly and none of the help topics appears to give me a solution that I haven't already tried. Help please!

When I click on an email and say reply, my reply is part of the original email.

If the recipient replies by clicking my reply-email, his reply will appear in the inbox in a thread along with the original email.

How can I avoid it so that all emails are listed as independent emails.

Dear Thunderbird Help Team,

since 3rd January 2023 I get a warning message from Thunderbird during login to my @t-online.de each time I try to read my mails.

I am using Thunderbird 102.6.1 (64) On Windows 10 Home PC with latest Edition Windows 10 Home Version 22H2 Installiert am ‎13.‎04.‎2022 Betriebssystembuild 19045.2486 Leistung Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.4190.0

Please see the attached warning message (in German). In my translation of the warning says: "Add security exception rule.... The certificate is not trusted because it has not been verified to have been issued by a trusted authority using a secure signature..."

If I view into the certificate I read the following, see screenshot attached.

I now would not like to accept the security exception permanently. I think this is best practice not to accept such a exception?

Dear help community, do you have any help to fix this issue please? Kind regards

How do I see and edit server, xfinity, gmail, etc, paswords store in Thunderbird? I have seen mulitple answers to this question, none of which work for me. For example, one of your answers says see menu(///), tools, preferences. My thunderbird has no preferences under tools. I just downloaded thunderbird today (Jan 8, 23) after a window 11 reset, so I think I have the lastest version of t-bird.

I have been using Thunderbird for a very long time with Outlook / Office365 (pro account). For the past few weeks, Thunderbird has been taking a very long time to send an email. I see the "Sending..." popup but nothing happens. If I click "cancel" and resend immediately, the email is sent immediately. If I wait, the email eventually sends after several minutes, sometimes it does not send at all.

I use the parameters defined on this page: https://support.microsoft.com/fr-fr/office/param%C3%A8tres-pop-imap-et-smtp-8361e398-8af4-4e97-b147-6c6c4ac95353

Does anyone have the same problem and solved it?

I specify that I have no problem sending with my Gmail accounts, nor with the Outlook web application.

Hello, I did a mistake while modifying my primary password. I'm very focused on password questions these days - I'm using Bitwarden since recently and very happy of that - the fact is that a tiny error can create big issues, that's what happened. I 'm now unable to type the precise password, then stuck. How could I resolve the problem? I don t have any issue with my email and IDs and passwords. My issue is the Primary Thunderbird password, (which I activated to protect the data) I could easily remove Thunderbird from Windows and reinstall it, of course, but I will may be lose some sent mails, will I? I 'm not quite sure that everything is actually synchronized with the email providers even though it should. But I'm may be wrong. So, Is there another solution? if someone knows how to remove the main password and to create a new one by any means, thanks a lot :)

By the way, if you're not yet using a password manager, Bitwarden is something fantastic. I read it everywhere, I used it, and I can confirm it.

Hello, I received a Yubikey 5 and all is working fine using GPG with it, except integration with Thunderbird on Windows.

I followed this guide: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird:OpenPGP:Smartcards including 64 windows section

I was able to successfully send mail to myself, but then thunderbird failed at decrypting this message: Thunderbird is indicating that key is not available and I see no prompt from gpg-agent. Key is correctly declared as GPG external.

If I try to decrypt tis email by storing it on file and using gpg in command line, it works fine: agent is asking for Yubikey PIN and gpg is decrypting the message. But this is an awful workaround, not user friendly at all.

I also did sanity check by sending to myself a message encrypted with a key generated by Thunderbird: all is working fine, the message is decrypted within Thunderbird.

=> How do you make Thunderbird decrypt message encrypted with key stored in Yubikey? How do you make the gpg-agent called by thunderbird?

On my Android telephone I can send with my e-mail adress xxxx@hccnet.nl witout any problem an e-mail to a .gmail.com account. The same is true for using this mailaccount on my laptop, with an other mail programm.

All server types are IMAP with port 993. I tried to find differences in the adjustmens but cannot find any difference. I am looking forward to hear if someone els has this problem too and a solution.

Thunderbird version 102.5.0 (64-bit) Debian 11 (Bullseye) KDE Plasma 5.20.5

I am trying to insert a HTML signature to my new messages. The HTML file contains a link to the signature file.

When I try to compose the message I get this message: "Thunderbird has blocked a file from loading into this message. Unblocking the file will include it in your sent message." There is a button "Preferences". When I click it, the message says: Unblock file:///home/xxx/yyy/zzz/artwork/email_sign_20160719.png

When I click Unblock, nothing happens.

I have tried to compose manually a new email and insert this image. Menu -> Insert -> Image -> Chose file. Chose the same file.

Same error message and no result when allowing / unblocking this image.

In Settings -> Privacy -> Mail Content -> Allow remote content in messages is checked. There is no exception blocking local file content.

I have added an exception, allowing everything starting with file:/// . No result.

In config editor I have mailnews.message_display.disable_remote_image set to false.

I am out of solutions. This is far beyond a simple method to allow me to attach an image in a signature.

My thunderbird configuration uses POP to download email onto my local computer. I recenly became aware that evrytime I read an email I have received from Constant Contact, Constant contact is being sent and report of my access that email. That is not refering to when the email is downloaded. After I download the message, Constant Contact is notified I have open the email. This happens just by opening the email, no links in the email have been clicked. I have the sending of return receipts turned off, but this seems like something different than a return receipt.

I suspect this is related to some of the tags I see in the email: X-Campaign-Activity-ID, X-Channel-ID, X-Feedback-ID, etc.

I am sure the marketing people on the other end love this, but to me it is an invasion of my privacy. Is there a way to prevent this in Thunderbird? It seems to me to be a no-brainer that email users should be able to prevent such an intrusion into their privacy. Am I wrong on that?

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

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?

Thunderbird version 91.xx and older used to have an option in the Composition Toolbar of the [Write] window to insert a digital signature. See attached digisig_TB91.jpg.

From Thunderbird 102.0 onwards that digital signature option is removed, though its settings in [Account Settings > End-To-End Encryption] are still there. See attached digisig_TB102.jpg.

Shall the digital signature option in the Composition Toolbar ever return?

P.S. 1. Yes, yes, I know. I can still insert a digital signature, but switching the function ON and OFF again in [Account Settings > End-To-End Encryption], is an annoyingly time-consuming hassle. 2. Do not confuse with encryption. That's a totally different function and purpose.

I am trying to set up the calendar in Thunderbird for my mother. She uses a google calendar and it is working fine on the old computer.

However, on the new one, it lets me get as far as trying to select a calendar to subscribe to be the list is blank.

In trying to troubleshoot, I tried setting up my own calendar on a different computer and the same is happening.

Mother's is a Windows 11 and mine is a Windows 10.

In troubleshooting I came across a post that suggested that I open the dev console and by golly there is an error there.

The same error appears on both accounts/computers. [Exception... " �invalid_request��� You can't sign in to this app because it doesn't comply with Google's OAuth 2.0 policy for keeping apps secure.

Where is/how do you set the calendar to use OAuth 2.0?

Email works fine is already set to OAuth 2. The calendar on the old computer works fine. Before the "choose account" window opens, it does seem that google trys to open a pop-up to enter the password, but the window closes and the "choose calendar" window that is blank open. Is this a bug? Can it be fixed?
