I have an issue trying to configure a secondary email account, for a non-profit I do some work for. It was ok in the past, though I recall was tricky to set up on TB a couple of years ago. But now it has ceased to function after I migrated TB profile (successfully apart from this issue) no matter what I try. I’d be grateful for any suggestions. As is the case with many non-profits, there’s little tech support, but others can use the email account ok. I think it may be a TB issue as I have been able to set up the account ok with MS new Windows Outlook app (lame, but better than Mail…low bar). I’d rather have this account on my TB client along with the others I use. And the issue is replicated on two of my PCs. TB account set up reports “can’t detect settings from host server”. I found a support thread link text, which says “The failure to detect settings is rather common where hosted domains are concerned. Mostly because everything is done to a price and most of the things around encryption are done in a halfhearted manner. As is the server setups for mail. However by faithfully copying the settings from the provider as to domains server name and ports it should work.” So I did manual configuration – copied the settings from the successful Outlook set up, but no dice – all I get is server time out message. Settings are: IMAP server: mail.XXXX.org.uk Port 993 Security SSL/TLS [earlier working settings were STARTTLS port 143] SMTP server: mail.XXXX.org.uk Port 465 Security SSL/TLS [[earlier working settings were STARTTLS port 587] And using Normal Password for both; I tried Autodetect too but no good. I’ve see a suggestion that turning off the firewall (Norton) might work, but I’m reluctant to do that and doesn’t seem to make sense that would cause the issue. I found another suggestion that apparently works for some people - leaving password blank on setup. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1399690. Before I try, are there any other suggestions or ideas? Trivial matter in the long run, but bugging me. Thanks

This is so strange. Usually cookie selection is after you sign in not before...

16.7.2024

I read this German article:

Firefox 128 liefert per Default Daten für Werbetreibende

Mozilla lässt eine neue Technologie für "datenschutzfreundliche digitale Werbung" in den Firefox einziehen. Die Aktivierung erfolgt ohne Einwilligung der Nutzer.

Which means Firefox 128 Delivers per-default Data for Advert agencies. Mozilla allows a new technology for "Date protection friendly digit Advertising" on Firefox. The activation is without permission from the user.

This is not good at all. I am now thinking of rejecting Fierfoy and moving to Opera or similar. Why did Morzilla take this fatal step?

So Mozilla supports privacy rights- and I've supported Mozilla for that reason- but they want Whatsapp to be censored for "misinformation" ? How does that go together? Whatsapp was supposed to be encrypted and not even Whatsapp was supposed to know the content of messages. How would they know about misinformation? And how do they get to decide what's misinformation now?

Hello everyone, Do you know of any way how to use the sensitivity headers (normal, personal, private, confidential) on Thunderbird? The Sensitivity Header is not compatible with the current version of Thunderbird and Thunderbird itself does not seem to have this simple function.

Is there any Thunderbird developer here? I suppose this is not a compliacated implementation (you already have options for receipt and delivery status headers, I suppose adding the sensitivity tag wouldn't be anything hard). Would you please consider this for your next release?

Thanks a lot!

I am able to set up message filters to delete incoming messages from specific email addresses, names, subjects, etc., but I need to set one up to delete everything coming from a particular 'reply to' address. This spammer uses different 'From' names and addresses, so that's no help, but the 'reply to' address remains constant in all messages, and that is what I want to target. But 'Reply to' is not an option when setting up 'Match all of the following' etc. How can I do this? Many thanks!

I very often delete emails with attchments that have been or have not been saved. My question is what is the status of the attachment when the email is deleted. I obviously have a saved copy in memory but what happens to the attachment when I delete the email. Is it also deleted or is it still in the computer memory, if so can it be read. Advice please.

I noticed an Other Bookmarks folder in my bar yesterday. Clicking on it showed 3 bookmarks: One labeled as move: https://www.lyricsondemand.com/tvthemes/rawhidelyrics.html One for Google And one for my bank account with log in information all filled in so that you only had to click submit to get into my bank account

I didn't create any of these. What is most disturbing is my bookmark for my bank account log in is first enter username, hit submit, then password is auto-filled in the next screen, hit submit to log in and see account details.

Again, I didn't create any of these!!! How can I see when they were created?

Can I see how they were created?

Anything else?

This is of course very disturbing!

I have changed my log in and password and checked off every notification feature in my online banking privacy area.

Thank you

Shaun
