Thunderbird

Thunderbird is an email, newsgroup, news feed, and chat (XMPP, IRC, Twitter) client that supports POP and IMAP and LDAP address completion. The vanilla version is not a personal information manager, although the Mozilla Lightning extension adds PIM functionality. Thunderbird can manage multiple email, newsgroup, and news feed accounts and supports multiple identities within accounts. Features such as quick search, saved search folders, advanced message filtering, message grouping, and labels help manage and find messages. Thunderbird incorporates a Bayesian spam filter, a whitelist based on the included address book, and can also understand classifications by server-based filters such as SpamAssassin. Extensions allow the addition of features.

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!

C: drive croaked.  Finally gave up and started with a from-scratch installation of Windows 10.  All programs, OS, etc, on C:, all data on other logical drives.  This notebook has 1TB of SSD, partitioned.  So far so good.  However I managed to delete essentially all email from one Thunderbird account; the other four are fine.  Email is IMAP style.  But deleted an entire set for one account, so the server did too.  Carbonite has a complete copy of the entire Thunderbird folder (it has started over with my new installation), so looking for how to "simply" get all of the INBOX emails for one of the five accounts and import or copy them into my current TBird environment.  Spent some time with the Carbonite folk; not much help.  I did reinstall Carbonite, so I have the Carbonite Backup drive which they claim has the old file in it.  I suppose the Carbonite "drive" is just an interface to all the data that is actually at their end.  So I have about 3K email I need to recover from Carbonite, get into "new" Thunderbird.  The old version is due to be deleted soonish, so some urgency.

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.

MBOX to PST
In this article, both manual, as well as some alternate solutions, are described. The most convenient way to migrate from Thunderbird to Outlook 2016 is by using MBOX to Outlook Converter tool. This software helps the user in converting from Mozilla Thunderbird to Outlook PST.

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

Exploring SQL Server 2016: Fundamentals

Learn the fundamentals of Microsoft SQL Server, a relational database management system that stores and retrieves data when requested by other software applications.

Running Thunderbird 52.8.0 (32 bit) with the mail supply from Office 365.

Two issues:

1. I have a series of Grey folders - almost all are empty. If I delete them they disappear then reappear???
2. I have created some new folders in Outlook that don't appear when viewed form Thunderbird.

I would prefer to use Thunderbird as my front end.

I have a customer who works for a company that changed servers for e-mail.   I downloaded his folders of "sent", "saved e-mails", "drafts".   The downloaded as Zipped files.   I am trying to import them into Thunderbird, but it seems they need to be  ".EML " files to be able to import into Thunderbird.   Any idea how I would go from a zipped file to import into Thunderbird?

I am running Exchange 2013 with an Edge server in a production environment as 2 separate VM's.(CAS & Mailbox Server Combined / Edge Seperate)  Both Exchange and Edge are versions 15.00.0847.032
The first issue I am trying to solve is to get IMAP4 and POP3 working with this server. When I try to connect via Thunderbird I get the message "Thunderbird failed to find the settings for your email account". When I run the command Get-ReceiveConnector "*\Client Frontend*" command under bindings I get: {[::]:587, 0.0.0.0:587} Enabled is True

Outlook / auto discover appears to work fine, the problem is trying to use 3rd party clients IMAP4 and Pop3 protocols.

Do I need to edit my receive/send connectors to show the IP/FDQN somehow?
Thank You in advance for any help offered.

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!

Does Thunderbird know about Two Step Authentication?

I use Does Thunderbird but feel it has a bug with Two Step Authentication. iCloud and Zoho are easy to configure for Two Step Authentication, and both work. Then, for some unknown reason, both have failed.

Do I need a different client?

I really hate needing to log onto my web clients...I have so many email accounts.

Thanks.

Why does a signature need to be hosted?

I have an image of my business card I configured as a signature image with Thunderbird.

I send out emails to my other email accounts, and the image shows up fine. So, what is the reason I need to host the image?

I guess if someone has images blocked, they will not see it. So in that case, would they need to click a URL in order to see the image?

If so, I imagine this enables the recipient to select which image to view versus viewing them all?

I am trying to understand the value of hosting my signature image.

Please let me know.

Thanks.

Greetings wise wizards of EE:

I'm helping a friend with a Windows 7 laptop in which she uses Mozilla Thunderbird for her e-mail application. Roughly two weeks ago, Thunderbird started producing odd characters within her outgoing e-mail, though these messages appear find to her. Here is a sample:

<<I'm still getting responses from folks with a few of those weird signs.�See below.� When I check the default text they are both Western ISO.� Any other ideas as to what to do?>>

I Googled this dilemma, and the general answer was to adjust the font settings as follow:

Open Thunderbird
Tools|Options|Display|Formatting
Under Fonts & Colours, click on Advanced.
At the bottom of the next window, under "Text Encoding" you can select the default encoding. Here you can choose "Unicode (UTF-8)".

This encoding was already the default... we tried switching to "Western", and this worked for a few days, but the problem re-appeared.

I am grateful for any help with this annoying issue.

Many thanks in advance,

Zovoth
