Hi guys, an automatic update seem to have made my Thunderbird Flatpak unusable. I have literally thousands of Emails in several Accounts as POP3 and need to access them. Suddenly since today I get the error message "You have launched an older version of Thunderbird" (Create New Profile) (Quit). Both choices are not acceptable for me. Any ideas what I can do? Any help is appreciated!

I'm using Discover to update Flatpak apps. A few days ago it updated to the latest 128 version of Thunderbird and I had subsequently made some changes to my profile and the details.

I wasn't paying attention this morning when updating via Discover and, once finished, found that Thunderbird had been downgraded to 115, leaving me unable to open it without the "A newer version of Thunderbird may have made changes to your profile which are no longer compatible with this older version." message.

I don't want to create a new profile, so what's the best way for me to switch back to 128 while maintaining the profile I had set up on it?

Best method to achive/backup IMAP email accounts before domain/hosting is cancelled?

Hi,

I have six IMAP email accounts that will cease to exist in a few weeks when I don't renew the domain/hosting where they reside.

Most of these accounts include invoices for purchases, and serial numbers etc that I need to have access to after the accounts will die, so just being able to read them offline. Even down the track when I inevitably build a new PC, I'll still want to have access to theses messages offline.

What is best practice for archiving or backing up these so I can still read them in future? Is there a way to archive so that I can read them in other clients in future? or I can only archive in a way that will be Thunderbird only?

Also... how do I get Thunderbird to allow me to read the messages from these accounts, without checking for new messages on these accounts, which would give error popups every time?

I've never had to do this before, and when I've searched around the results seem super confusing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In case its relevant, my current Thunderbird version is 115.12.1 and running latest update of Win 10.

I recently created a new profile, changing from POP3 to IMAP in order to meet the new Microsoft security requirements. All went well until I went to change my address book backup copy routine to access my address book in the new profile.. I cannot find any .MAB nor .SQLITE files anywhere! My address book is out there somewhere, as I can bring it up in Thunderbird, but I cannot find the actual file. What's going on?

Hi, I’m trying to move from Outlook 2003 to Thunderbird 115.12.2 (64-bit). Using the import wizard fails. Tools > Import select Import From Outlook and the following message appears. “Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client can not fulfil the message request”. I’m taken back to the Import from screen with the addition of a red panel with “No Profile Found” on it. Outlook 2003 is the default e-mail client, checked more than once. I’m trying to migrate to thunderbird so I have no account setting, thinking they would be imported. My pst’s files have been moved to a directory on a different partition to the Outlook programme, tried creating a dummy profile using default Outlook storage and still fails. I’ve looked at converting pst files to mbox, but this doesn’t see to include the account settings. But I could add them manually or I can not import the mbox files or directory structure into Thunderbird. I’ve been messing around trying other things but nothing works. Internet searches, Thunderbird forum searches suggests solutions but all fails and the steps don’t match Thunderbird menu, etc in many cases. I’m stuck. Can anyone give any advice on how to migrate from Outlook 2003 to Thunderbird. Tools, Add-Ins or manual methods, anything just to get me up and running. PS I’ve two pst files, one is the default main Outlook.pst and the second a secondary store I created in the folders of Outlokk called Store.pst, beside the none default storage location everything else is standard for Outlook and Thunderbird.

I recently updated Thunderbird to 115.3.3. When the update was complete it appears to have split my profile into two and created two of Inbox, Drafts, Sent, and Trash. I use Earthlink which is the name of the POP3 account. Now there are Inbox, Drafts, Sent, and Trash for "Earthlink", and a set for "Local Folders". Junk and Archives are only associated with "Local Folders", and "Outbox" shows up under a "Local Folders" header along with all of the folders I used to organize received messages. When new messages are downloaded they appear in "Inbox / Local Folders". Nothing appears in any of the "Earthlink / ..." folders.

I don't recall exactly what it looked like before but there was only one set of the primary folders, and the local folders I created to organize my inbox. I have attached screenshots of the the folder navigation pane, as well as the odd organization of the "Account Settings" tab. I am admittedly not an expert. Any help is appreciated.
