Finder and deleting old Mac Thunderbird emails

I have deleted a handful of old email accounts in Thunderbird. But, I forgot to always check the checkbox to remove the associated emails.

Now, I am asked to compress the emails, which are ~275 GB.

Is there a way to find these folders and delete them manually?

Thanks

Hello,

This is the 1st of 3* questions re searching in Mozilla Thunderbird email manager:

How do you determine the specific folder/subfolder in which a particular search-result email resides?

In other words, after entering search criteria, Thunderbird displays a list of messages which match the specified criteria. Selecting one of the messages displays its content OK but how do you determine the specific folder/subfolder which contains that message?

Thanks

On a mac, I have a program that can send an email of some date. We are trying to use Thunderbird instead of macMail. I have the default email client set in Mail's preferences as Thunderbird but the program keeps grabbing the macMail client for sending this information. This is happening on all workstations (this is a dental practice management piece of software.) I checked with the software company and there are not settings within the program that control what program is used for email and is selected through the defaults. I have not been able to find anything on this via Google. Any help with this would be appreciated.

BTW: The OS is Sierra,10.12.6

Regards,

Bill

A client of mine is using Thunderbird email program with an AOL email address using IMap, not POP. He wants to rearrange his folders, putting some as subfolders of others.  Should he do this on Thunderbird, and then will AOL rearrange their folders to match, or should he do this on AOL, or both, or shouldn't it matter?  Because it's IMAP I'm afraid that messing with the folders will screw up the folders either online or in Thunderbird.
Thanks,
Al

Hi- a computer tech here replaced our hard drive, which was crapping out. He said he moved everything over, but we had to download and reinstall Thunderbird email client and Firefox.

The problem is, we don't have the bookmarks or histry in FF, and we created a new profile in Thunderbird, but we don't have any of the old folders or sent emails.

Now, we do have a macrium reflect image which I can browse, from just a few days ago. I copied the profiles from appdata into each of the profile folders on the new C drive.

But still no luck. What am I missing? Thanks!

We've long used WinMail.exe on a Windows server 2008 to process outgoing emails from an app hosted on that machine.  The beauty of WinMail.exe is that it runs as a service, or more precisely, it doesn't have to be actually OPEN and running on the server all the time.

We're now migrating to Windows Server 2016, and do not see any references to WinMail.exe there.  Can someone suggest an alternative?  Mozilla Thunderbird has been recommended to us, but we're not sure if it can run in the background.

Thoughts?

Hello,

Each time I start Thunderbird, the question pops up: use  Thunderbird as the default client .... and I says yes.
What is more, at Default Programs, Thunderbird has all rights.
But still it doesn't work.

I use Windows 7, Thunderbird 60.0

If I click on a link to send a mail, Internet Explorer pop up with : "Could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed"

What should I do?
Thank you!

Hi

I have three different systems installed with Thunderbird 52.9.1 32bit and four extensions (Gsyncontact, Lightning, Provider for Google Calendar and QuickFolders) :
a Windows Server 2012 R2, an old ASUS P8Z68-V-PRO (16GB RAM + 512GB SSD) and a brand new XPS15 9575 - the last two run under Windows 10 64bit

The XPS and the Server both suffer from a strange phenomena that seems to me to be linked to the calendar reminders
A blank grey rectangle appears at the bottom right hand side of the Windows desktop screen
thunderbird-grey-rectangle.pngThe only way to get rid of it is to restart Thunderbird

It is a little annoying and was wondering if anyone else was suffering from this and what the workaround was ?

thanks

I received an email today (8/12/2018) that appears to have been sent on MAY 5 of this year.

I ran MailWasher as usual and saw this unusual email. Mailwasher wouldn't open it. Fine. I opened Thunderbird, and it did not appear in today's emails.

I opened my Earthlink mail account (that's the address it was sent to) and there was the email - no spam, nothing attached, no problem...except that it was apparently sent on May 5.

What the heck is the deal with THAT and the other dead ends involved in this mess?

Outlook 2016 is randomly asking for passwords to pop/imap account.  It is a Verizon.net email account and I have the proper settings:
pop.verizon.net SSL 993

smtp.verizon.net SSL 465


I can setup the same account in Thunderbird on the same PC and it appears to work all the time (Only been a short while...).  I have deleted the general credentials.  I do get an ERR SYS/temp error.

How do I transfer my bell mail address book to Thunderbird?  Bell mail is IMAP and I believe that Thunderbird is IMAP as well.
Typically, one exports the file as a csv file and then import the address book to the new email program.  The problem is that
the computer I am trying to do this with does not have Microsoft Office.  It is using Open Office and the spreadsheet program is called Calc.
Therefore, the option of using a csv file is not possible.
Is it possible to transfer the address book (export and import) or must I input the email addresses manually?  There are 143 email addresses.
thanks,
capreol

I have some blockage on my iCloud email

I do not understand why, but certain emails do not show up on my iCloud account.

I logged into iCloud.com and saw no error or sign it was  not working. But I do know that certain emails have been lost. Such as, my WordPress site has an outbound email with a PDF attached. I pulled my hair out with the email not showing up until I used my trusty GMail.

Other things I fear are also blocked.

In my ThunderBird (Mac) for the iCloud email, there is no SPAM folder. So, perhaps it is being flagged somewhere as SPAM, but not visible either on ThunderBird or online at iCloud.com

Suggestions?

Thanks

How to make signature that will look the same on different email-clients? We use outlook 2010, 2013 and 2016 and mozzila thunderbird. I have tested with thunderbird and Outlook 2016 and have big problems, from display of color to different looking text.   What I found is when I send a colored line (orange) the other email client changes it to gray + when mail is sent from thunderbird formating is gone.. So how to proceed here? I made signature in word 2016 then copy it to outlook and  for thunderbird I tried to open it as .htm file or copy paste the signature from outlook and then inside new mail use save, file and then as html and then choose it as signature.

So any options what should I use do?  I even tryed to use signature as picture but is not a preferable way.

My final goal is to have a signature that will work with all email clients and will be easilly editable for every employee.

Thanks

Questions about Thunderbird (Mac)

Can I Collapse All email accounts? I do this manually, and hate all the clicking...

Also, can I re-arrange the Email accounts?

I do not want to Delete them all, then need to recreate them all, then find I have a New Email account and need to do it all over again.

I want them grouped in some fashion.

Thanks

Helping my brothers who are very low tech.  

They have their own domain. Hosted at a shared hosting company. They check / send their mail ONLY from the webmail of the hosting company.

They are moving the website to another shared hosting company (and setting up email at that new company also I would think).  They are asking me about getting / saving all the the old emails on the first hosting company.

I know I could use my outlook, set up a POP account and download the inbox for each account.  But other folders?  Sent?  

Maybe I'm not much more techy than them - should I really set up outlook for IMAP?  then I can export ALL the folders into a PST?

Next issue - they don't use / have  outlook. Can that PST of inbox / sent / etc be pushed up to the new server? (set up imap to the new server, and drag /drop emails from the PST into the IMAP appropriate folders?

If that won't work, then what would you recommend for someone that is using just the webmail of the hosting company but want to see the old emails once in a while?  Thunderbird for the old emails?

Thanks!
