I get 2-4 emails per day from construction "estimating services", probably because I previously owned a contracting company, which no longer exists. They appear to be from mail-in-a-box. How do I stop these? Is it safe to go to mail-in-a-box website to request stop, or will that merely incur more emails?

Thanks for ability to ask for help.

I accidentally erased some of my email addresses and passwords. Previously I recall being able to access Password Manager to easily enter new email addresses and new passwords. That was some time ago.

I've attempted to follow instructions "within" Thunderbird but on getting into Password Manager where there are now only three of my 4 o5 emails addresses left, I could not find a way to replace the lost addresses and password. It was so easy to do so some years ago. Older users may recall old advice about using multiple addresses where the one attracting scams could be annihilated. I'll be 86 in a fortnight!

Humble thanks in anticipation - I'm still using Windows 7 and think it's the latest or near latest Thunderbird

Hi All,

Real quick one. I send a link everyday to people in my office to an Excel file stored on our S Drive.

I sent it to myself and clicking the link does nothing. It does work in Outlook

I've tried setting all 4 settings under network.protocol-handler.external- to true but hasn't worked.

Is this because it isn't a html file? I also tried via URN link rather than drive letter.

Thanks for the help.

I had been using my outlook account in Thunderbird for years, but have not for the past 2 years or so. I have multiple email accounts set up in Thunderbird now. All but one -- the outlook.com account -- work. For some reason, despite having the correct username and password, Thunderbird continues to FAIL. I've researched online and tried other server settings, and have confirmed my outlook accounts server settings on outlook.com, and have ensured the settings are identical to what is entered in Thunderbird, but nothing works in Thunderbird. Windows MAIL also works fine. Thunderbird Error is attached. As FYI, I also tried disabling 2 factor authentication in Microsoft, in case that is the issue, but that didn't work either. I also tried deleting and re-adding my outlook account in Thunderbird in case there was some new configuration on Outlook side that was not being captured in Thunderbird. That didn't work either. So now I'm at a loss! I'd appreciate ANY assistance anyone familiar with this issue can give me! In case needed, I do not subscribe to Office365. I'm only using Outlook.com, etc. Please help! Thanks in advance!

Hello All,

I generated a new S/MIME certifacte (from Sectigo) and downloaded correctly all needed files too. To test it with another program, I correctly imported it in Firefox (108.0). Problem began when I import it to Thunderbird (102.7.0). I can not manage, where it will be stored and the certificate appears in the 'People' tab instead of 'Your certificates'. Deleting the certificate, restart the program, download the newest version - did not help. When I click to a 'View' button, than the certificate is listed with all parameters - please see pictures in attachment. I did not get any error message during importing: just added a pssword and it was all. As this certificate is not listed as mine, I can not choose it to use for a signing. Did you encountered a situation like this ? Can you advise me, how to correct it ? In the past I generated certificates and never was in a situation like this. Thanks for your help. Bye George

Thunderbird cannot find my Key ID when trying to sign a message with external GnuPG

Hello.

I'm trying to set up Thunderbird to use GnuPG installed on my laptop.

Here are relevant settings I changed: ``` mail.identity.default.openpgp_key_id = "goose-new <wbg@angouri.org>" mail.openpgp.allow_external_gnupg = true ```

Then I create a new email, press OpenPGP -> Digitally sign.

Then I press Send.

However, it says ``` Unable to send the message, because there is a problem with your personal key. The configured key ID ‘goose-new <wbg@angouri.org>’ cannot be found on your keyring ```

It is correctly configured in gpg (and I can sign files with it).

Any idea?

(versions: gpg: 2.3.7, thunderbird 102.6.0, OS: NixOS 23.05)

HI, First we are in Australia and we have Optus for our email client/company. We have laptops. My husband's is a ASUS Zenbook running windows 11. I have an HP running windows 10. MY emails work fine. My husband's do not. The settings are the same on both our laptops for the outgoing server, and remember mine works fine, but not his. So why do you think that he cannot send the emails? They go through sometimes though. Last one was on 20 Dec 2022. But not today, 19 Jan 2023. It very frustrating as you can imagine. AND yes, we have it set up as per Optus instruction, but remember, MY emails can be sent. I'm thinking of deleting Thunderbird and reinstalling it, but not sure. I'm also thinking of going over to Outlook, but don't really like them. Can you help please? Cheers, Sandy

It seems multiple users have inquired regarding display of the sender email address, not the spoofed display name. It looks like the 'From' and 'Correspondents' fields are identical. The replay to user inquiries is often just a link to an addon which purportedly will add such a column. Why does Thunderbird offer only information that is so commonly manipulated by phishing attacks, and fail to provide such basic header information as sending email address? Is there a rationale? Add a chat function, a calendar, a task list, but do not offer basic information that is needed to identify malicious email?

How does the project prioritize feature development? This does not reflect well on the project. Is there any official rationale for why this situation continues?

Been using Thunderbird on my windows PC and Laptop "forever". Since Dec 16, I cannot get my gmail, although my calendar (stored on google servers) works fine. I've gone through your troubleshooting steps (cookies, javascript, etc) and no fix.

My google password contains special characters + and *. Is it possible one of those characters are not passing through from the Thunderbird login prompt to google?

Any other suggestions?

Thank you, Frank Murray fjmurraytx@gmail.com
