OAuth2 authentication used to work in my POP server settings. When I click check messages it is stuck at sending login information. I must use normal password to connect. What might have changed to cause this? I checked antivirus - no luck.

Setting up Office365 email

I have used T-bird successfully for many years. My office email was recently changed to an Outlook.office365.com account. I try to set it up in Thunderbird following the Article "Using Thunderbird with Microsoft Office 365" (https://www.canterbury.ac.nz/media/documents/its/Using-Thunderbird-with-O365.pdf). Everything goes fine until I get the panel from Outlook that says enter password. then I get the message "Unable to log in. Probably wrong configuration, username or password". The username and password are the same ones I use to access it via Outlook on the internet and they work fine but not through Thunderbird. The information I use in the set up is: IMAP Hostname: outlook.office365.com Port: 993 Connection security: SSL/TLS Authentication method: OAuth2

Any idea what I am doing wrong here?

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.

GPG keys became unavailable for use by Thunderbird

Hi,

my situation was like so: I am using Thunderbird 102.6.0 under an up to date Fedora 36. I have an email account registered into Thunderbird. I have an RSA key with a passphrase added which I use to sign an decrypt as needed. I use a master password.

That was the situation before today. No update to Thunderbird have been made since the issue, nor to the system (afaik). I can not sign and decrypt messages anymore through Thunderbird. For instance, when I seek to send a signed email Thunderbird gives me a popup with: `Unable to send the message, because there is a problem with your personal key.`. Signature verification still works so at least Thunderbird can access my public key.

I go to the Thunderbird `Account Settings` and under `End-To-End Encryption` I see that the selected personal key radio button is greyed out. It says that the private is not available or readable (I dont remember, the message disappeared when I selected a radio button repenting an other key in the list...).

I check the Thunderbird OpenPGP manager and see that there is indeed a key for the email address associated to the account (see the attached picture).

This key pair is valid enough so that I can manually encrypt and decrypt using the `gpg` command (using a terminal, not under Thunderbird).

Any idea why Thunderbird forgot about the private key ?

Why do I get this error message on Thunderbird?

This message is very confusing. Thunderbird is the only application that generates this error. I have no problems with Outlook Mail or 2 other email clients. Is there a work around this, please?
