I have set up a new Office 365 account for my domain.
Previously the e-mail was on IMAP.

Having set up the accounts on 365 I want to repopulate the e-mail folders for each user.

I have backups for the Windows users with MozBackup and the Mac users in Outlook OLT files.

365 doesn';t seem to recognise these backups to import the data.

I read what I could copy and paste/drag and drop them within Thunderbird into the new account.
However whenever I do then en-masse I get the following error?

The current command did not succeed. The mail sevrer for accounts X@Y.Z reponded [TRYCREATE] Folder is not found.

What's the workaround?

Hi all... we have a GMail account that we have been sharing the same mailbox via IMAP in Thunderbird Ver. 52.2.1 for months with no issues.  As of last Friday (July 14, 17) all of the PC's stopped being able to sync their email with the server.  They are all getting an error message that says "Server ____@gmail.com has disconnected. The server may have gone down or there may be a network problem."  I've not been able to find any indication that GMail is having any issues and have had no luck getting any of them working.  Deleting the account and recreating it works but it will not load any of the folders and still gives the same error message.  Accessing the account works normally when using the GMail website.  I've spent most of the day reading through and trying some of the old suggestions on old blogs to no avail.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Greg

I need a powerful, paid Thunderbird to Outlook (PST) converter for over 30 Win 7 (some Win 10) desktops that I will install Outlook 2016 on.  The current Thunderbird accounts are setup mostly in POP3 and some Thunderbird's have 2 POP3 accounts.

The free ones, are too much of a pain and will pay to have a good one that does not have me doing manual work.

I have a bunch of emails now in Thunderbird, and would like to group them.

Can I do that?

Thanks

I'm in a real pickle! I am using Dovecot on a Linux mail server with IMAP folders . I've moved a Thunderbird profile from a Windows 7 mail client to Linux. That worked just fine, all folders and messages showed up. Then I did something, I've no idea what. Now, I can only see messages from the Maildir/cur folder on the server. None of the INBOX subfolders show up. I tried restoring again the original Windows profile, but same result. I continue to get the "The current operation on 'inbox' did not succeed" message. It says, "refer to server log for more information". There is nothing in Tools > Developer Tools > Error console. Where is this server log? Perhaps that will give me a clue as to what happened.

I desperately need to try and get this back in action by morning or the user is out of luck for email tomorrow.

Anyone?

Hello,

When using Thunderbird, how do you copy or save images that are embedded in the body of a received email (ie images were pasted into the body of the email by the sender and not attached as files)?

I received an email which contains 4-5 images pasted in the body. Right-clicking on the image brings up a menu but there is no Save or Save as option. There is a Copy option but after selecting that, nothing appears when pasting it. Furthermore, Ditto clipboard manager (which retains a duplicate of everything copied to the clipboard) has no sign of it. I also tried Select all (Ctrl+a) — which does highlight the images — followed by Ctrl+c but the paste includes only the text from the email.

At this point, it seems like my only option is to use the Snipping Tool to capture the images from my screen one-at-a-time. However, I would be very surprised if Thunderbird does not have a way to do it and the problem is that I just don't know what that is.

Thanks

The pc owner has a Dell with Windows 7 but Windows 10 disc came with it. He says or thinks that Windows 10 is integrated in the system since he has a disc to use to acquire 10 any time he desires.

He uses Thunderbird and I sent him an image as an attachment from my e-mail. He also got an attachment from someone else as a .doc.
He opens the .doc using Word and it prints fine. Thunderbird opens a window and he chooses which program he wants to open it with and Word is right there for him to choose.
I'm there and when I choose Windows Picture Manager to open my attached photo so I can print a few wallet sized the print job gets stuck in the queue and fails to complete printing. There is a green progress bar and I can not see the green get to the right end of the bar before it closes. I've tried saving the image to the desktop and then open it with the same program and try to print again and it gets stuck in the queue behind the other one. The pc owner says the pc has a mind of it's own. (?)
It will not print from an e-mail or from the desktop so he says.

I opened Google and went to my ISP's website and accessed my own e-mail that way and looked in my sent folder and there was the image I had sent him. I right clicked and saved it to his desktop and opened it with his Picture Manager and it failed to print and got stuck in the queue. All in the queue can be cancelled except the first one. I tried a reboot and no success getting the first one totally cancelled.

Hello there!

I am trying to transfer data (emails, contacts) from MS Outlook 2000 to Thunderbird.
There is no direct export option that would be OK in Outlook 2000.

Can you please suggest which steps to take to transfer emails and contacts.

Thanks and regards!

I'm sure this is an easy issue for the experts, but I can't seem to wrap my head around it.

Exchange 2013 Server and Outlook for everyone works great.  Can also setup Thunderbird and it works.  Problem happens when I log into a machine (domain joined or even non-domain joined) as Sally and try to setup Thunderbird with Jim's account.  I've given Sally full delegate access from Jim's account, but still won't work.  As soon as I login as Jim on the machine then I can setup the email account in Thunderbird.  What do I need to do to let Sally login to a machine and setup Jim's account in Thunderbird?

Can anyone recommend a software tool to migrate Thunderbird to Outlook. Please have used the tool and let me know if there is anything I might need to know to make the migration go smoothly

I just bought a new DELL Latitude E5270 Laptop and installed Thunderbird on it.  It connected to my POP3 E-Mail account just fine, even downloaded the E-Mails that were out there and correctly dropped a lot of trash into the junk folder.   However, once I exited the program and re-entered it, every e-mail in my Inbox was gone and even though I tried to send new E-Mails to that account, it never downloaded them again.   I read through every forum I could find, checked all the common parameters people are saying might cause such a thing, but nothing.   It simply does not work.   I uninstalled BitDefender Anti-virus and it started working again, so I thought the problem was an incompatibility of some kind.   However, when I went back into Thunderbird today, it again deleted all the e-mails in my Inbox.   Do you have any idea what might be causing this?

Hello,



Hello,   I have recently run to a problem with a streaming capture program which was causing a BSOD 0xC2. Finally determined that it was related to the rrnetcap.sys from Audials. Anyway, used Revo UNinstaller to remove all traces, I think. Have had no issues with booting/startup in Windows 7 SP1. I then began to realize issues with both FF & TB afterward. So, being frustrated saved my profiles and uninstalled with Revo Uninstaller as well. Finally things still working correctly after 4 times finally uninstalling and reinstalling, decided to remove anything which remotely looks like a plug in. Adobe, Flash, Java, etc. Reuninstalled FF & TB completely, and even after removing any traces of Mozilla in registry, still having a problem with nothing but a clean install, default profile, nothing else added FF alone still have a problem with trying to open Options. If I try using "about:preferences" I get the same response. I realized this in TB as well and that's why I figured this to be a common problem between the 2 applications. I have performed CHKDSK with recovery no bad sectors, performed SFC /scannow - all is without error. Really cannot figure this out, and see nothing discussed as similar. Have tried other things noted in forum, but perhaps I have overlooked something. Appreciate any assistance anyone may have.

This question has been posted to the Mozilla Forum and have received the "pat" answer. I have followed the recommended clean install, all with …

I have a Yahoo account which is having mail forwarded to it from a domain mail server. I'd like to keep it that way if possible.

The problem: Thunderbird (which has one account only [Yahoo] configured) seems to require more than just additional SMTP accounts configured in order to choose from which address to send a mail. The goal is to be able to send from x@domain, y@domain etc. at will. I'm hoping to be able to achieve this goal without adding additional accounts in Thunderbird. Is it possible?

Hi, We're having trouble on one laptop from one server. It's prodigy.net.mx. We're with Telmex in Mexico, and we're in Mexico physically.

The problem laptop is running Windows 7, using Thunderbird 45.8.0.

Hotmail has started blocking my email to my sister's Hotmail.  My server is Media Temple.   I am getting the following when attempting a send:

    host mx1.hotmail.com [yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy]: 550 SC-001 (SNT004-MC1F1) Unfortunately, messages from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx weren't sent. Please contact your Internet service provider since part of their network is on our block list. You can also refer your provider to http://mail.live.com/mail/troubleshooting.aspx#errors.

Media Temple has submitted the IP block to Microsoft several times but still blocked.  So thought I would just switch my SMTP server to Google, but Google keeps rejecting the connection.  I have some many searches, but most hits are related to PHP scripts under Ubuntu or Word Press.  Many are also four years or so old, and I hear that Google fiddles with this frequently.  I looked into "Send as" settings, but that seems to be a way for using my own server SMTP for a Google account.  I have been using the suggested setup, so I think I need something at the Google end.

I want to make a macro that I can schedule to run periodically that will run a Thunderbird menu item.  It is pretty simple: send alt-t, then <down> some number of times, then <Enter.>.  A keyboard utility would be fine if it could be configured to run every few minutes.

I can't believe this situation has persisted for years and years: hundreds of postings that the TBird junk service will mark an email as junk but will not move it.  The learning system is pretty good at marking something as junk, but not move it.  Yes, I have read dozens of postings of how-to, etc, so let's just agree it is broken; sometimes moves junk, most times does not.

So I wrote a filter to look for the Junk flag and move the email.  It does that very well.  But I have to manually run it when needed; it does not automatically run, though it is set up to.  So again, dozens of requests for a utility that will schedule a filter to run; no such animal that I can find.

So the bottom line is I am looking for a scheduler that will allow me to schedule my filter to run every few minutes, or even better: run a set number of seconds after email downloads are complete.

a friend has cablevision optonline home internet service with dynamic DHCP.

She's been using Windows Live Mail on her windows 7 machine to access her optonline (OOL) and gmail email accounts.

About a month ago, she wasn't able to send mail with Windows Live app using the optonline account: the OOL server wouldn't accept the mail.  And when she sent from gmail to OOL users via live mail app, it was blocked by Cablevision.

When using the gmail and OOL webmail, everything worked perfect. Calling OOL tech support they said one of her machines was infected with malware and they blocked her outbound sending ability.

we had checked her machine and told them it was clean. OOL then removed the block they said.

The problem came back recently.  She had a number for OOL shared services which is a 2nd tier part of support it seems.  But they were no help, blaming winfdows live app for the problem.  We installed thunderbird with the same results.  It would appear that her IP address was on RBLs which is what we saw. But OOL said they don't use the RBLs that we saw she was on.

I had her turn off her cable modem last night and this morning when powering it on, she got a different IP address.  But that one is on several RBLs also.

Then I started checking other IPs in those ranges and those are also on RBLs

would anyone have any advice? Are OOL IP address ranges automatically on some RBLs?  I can't see why or when these IP addresses were put on the RBLs.

HP 1310

We printed a test page by holding down the cancel button and the color copy button and then release. We got perfect red, yellow, blue but no black.
Per another question you see an e-mail was printed from Thunderbird and the header came out prefect black but the rest was a purple. If you look at that image, just under the bottom black line, you see where it looks like someone tried to erase some words and were sloppy. I created that e-mail for the guy to print. Those missing words were bold and red.

We removed the printer and reinstalled and got all the drivers. For some reason a test page is trying to print and fails to delete. We restarted the pc and unplugged the printer and the "deleting but never finishes" is still there.
So, that is the 1310 in the device folder. So we added the printer and now was have the 1310 copy 1. Good, we are now bypassing the test page that never deletes. We printed a food coupon and it was poor quality, lines everywhere.

We can not test all 4 inks because we can not get the printer to print normally as far as color. I copied a black document to notepad > print > it came out light purple.

#1 question with others to follow on this thread is why is the HP printer not in the control panel > programs > ??
It's not there but we can print with the HP 1310 copy 1.
 
The pc owner has turned the pc off until tomorrow and the printer off as well. Hopefully the pc deletes the test page so we do not have to use copy 1.
