I came to Thunderbird because I have been using an email server - btinternet - for many years and it has become clogged with a backlog of emails many of which were not opened and remain so. I would like to retain my email address, John.romm@btinternet.com, it is a vitally important one for my work. But I would ike to use and manage it Thunderbird which is already working well for me. However, it is important to do both of two things. First, I need to bulk delete all unopened emails - some 160,000 of them. And second, I would like to construct filters to keep a wide range of incoming emails out of my inbox. Please help!

I have 10 email accounts in my Thunderbird 115.12.2 (64-bit) and I am using Microsoft Windows 10 Pro and all my sent, draft, archives and templates are going into a different folder. I want them to go into the folder from which the email was sent but they are all going into the email tinakeeling@att.net.

I have changed it to reflect the correct folder but then a few days later and every time I restart Thunderbird the program changes the folders back to tinakeeling@att.net

I have even unchecked the box "place a copy in" and when Thunderbird is restarted it reverts back.

What can I do to fix this issue?

I am trying to set Sort By to Unthreaded since every folder resets to Threaded whenever a compact folder or a search takes place. I have read the solution offered here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1426449 but it relies on preference options and drop down option boxes that simply do not exist on my version of Thunderbird (version 128.0.1), particularly the "Apply current view to..." option does not seem to exist. Perhaps this option has moved? Is there still a way to change default view to Unthreaded? This is making Thunderbird very cumbersome.

Even if Firefox isn't closed between visits. ex: Youtube, forum sites, etc. I don't know if this is FF or win11 doing it. I didn't change any settings in FF on 11. Any help or direction appreciated.

A while back the behavior of the ctrl+shift+t shortcut changed from reopening tab in the current window to reopening tab in the current window or reopening last closed window which for me and a lot of other people too made it worse. There's been a thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1421356 but it's been archived without a real solution. Is there now a way like a about:config toggle to bring back the old functionality? I really miss the old behavior.

I use thunderbird on Ubuntu 24.04. My emails are on a network drive for at least 20 years. Recently Thunderbird must be installed from snap or flatpak. In both cases I can still select the mail files from my network. But in both cases the path to my mail file is garbled like:

   /run/flatpak/doc/83840e7a/imap.freedom-1.nl

But thunderbird still can find the network files after a restart. However, when rebooting the hex part of the file path (in this example 83840e7a) has a completely different number. The result is that thunderbird cannot find my mail anymore. How can I solve this issue?

I run Firefox on two windows machines, with identical settings and extensions - I regularly sync across them, and have all my passwords saved to a local file, just in case. Recently, one machine (the only one with Win11) has begun disconnecting me from Mozilla every time I close Firefox, and wiping the saved passwords. I have to sign in to Mozilla and import all the passwords every time i reopen Firefox. I have tried all the refresh, reinstall options and nothing seems to fix it. Any ideas what's going on and how to fix?

I use Thunderbird (TB) 115.13.0 64-bit on Windows 11. TB displays in 1 window with 4 tabs (Mail, calendar, address book, tasks). In the Address Book (AB) tab when I double click on a contact to edit or view it, a new window used to open. I found that most useful. For a while now, the contact opens in a pane in the address book tab: -Either a large pane to the right of the existing AB panes, requiring the TB window to be widened such that it takes up most of my 27" display (when table layout is not chosen). -Or a new pane at the bottom of the address book tab which makes a small area to edit, and a small area to view the list of contacts (when Table Layout is not chosen). Question: Can TB Contacts be configured to open a contact in a new window (or new tab) instead of a new pane in the AB tab? Thanks!!!

Unified Inbox, IMAP and Local Folders

I have an IMAP account which receives general email and email from a number of mailing lists.

I only want to see the mailing list email on my laptop, where I run Thunderbird (115.12.2).

So (on the laptop) I have Message Filters to move the email for each mailing list to a corresponding folder. But with IMAP I cannot add a rule to delete the email from the IMAP server. (I guess that is because folders in the IMAP accounts Inbox are resynced with the server ?)

What I'd *really* like to do is have a 'Retention Policy' (in the 'Folder Properties') to 'Remove From Server' -- so that anything appearing in such a folder would be removed from the server and/or not resynced with the server.


What I have done is create the mailing list folders in 'Local Folders'. This has the effect I want: it removes the mailing list email from the IMAP server.

However, the Local Folders languish at the bottom in the Folder Pane. I really want the mailing list folders to appear in the Inbox (for the account in question -- one of several I have).

Curiously: in the 'Saved Search Properties' for the Inbox, I can go to "Select the folders to search" and I can see all the Local Folders. I can select mailing list folders and when I 'Update', those folders disappear from Local Folders, but they do *not* appear in the Inbox. When I restart Thunderbird, those folders magically reappear in the Local Folders and still do not appear in the Inbox -- even though they are still selected to do so !

Even if it was possible to show some local folders in the Inbox they would not be in the Inbox for the account.

I do not know how Thunderbird knows which folders are local and which ones are not. Is it possible to change a folder setting somewhere so that a folder in an account's inbox is actually local (or is treated as local) ?
