I have used "All mail" option in Search Messages window to search and store in a local folder emails which were: - received recently and are unread - received in the past 7 days - sent in the past 7 days

Since yesterday (2024-07-17), the local folder (and subfolder) for them emails received (both unread and within 7 days) has disappeared. The one for sent is still there.

Most importantly, there is no option "All mail" in the Search Messages windows.

For the steps I have already tried, I have multiple email accounts within I need to search. And Global Search is activated. I have TB 1 profile. I have deleted the global-messages-db.sqlite and re-created it.

Thank you in advance for your help

Running Thunderbird 115.12.2 (32-bit)

I have setup a Message Filter to automatically transfer an email to a local folder. The transfer is not working even when I start the filter manually. I then tried to right click on the email and copy it to the local folder, but that also did not work.

I thought the problem might be with the local folder so I deleted it. When I attempted to add a folder with the same name, I was told that a folder with that name already exists. Very confusing.

I have several other similar filters that work properly.

Is the any log information that could provide a clue to what is not happening.

As of today, July 17, 2014, I cannot send messages on Thunderbird through Earthlink. When i send a message, I get an screen message that mentions being on the Vade Threat List. Further research informs me that Mozilla seems to regards Earthlink as an agent that spreads spam. I've been through Earthlink's preliminary process of troubleshooting, with no success. My situation has been elevated. Can you shed any light on what is going on?

For many years I've been getting my various podcasts by subscribing to the RSS feeds with Thunderbird. The podcast then appears as an attachment to a RSS item, which I can right-click and download.

Until a couple of weeks ago, possibly after I updated TB to 115.12.2 64bit.

RSS feed items no longer visibly have attachments. If they have a download link, I can right-clicking on it and Save As, but nothing happens and nothing is saved. If I left-click on it a player gadget opens and starts playing. I then have to right click on that and Save Audio.

Examle podcasts that are giving me trouble: https://feeds.acast.com/public/shows/0185cea5-9e3b-4b82-a887-26f91f92765f https://feeds.twit.tv/sn.xml http://risky.biz/rss.xml

Is there a config option I can set to restore the previous behaviour? I can't go on using TB for my podcsts as it is - it's too much of a pain.

We have 3 email accounts, each for out business. 1 of them stopped working several years ago with no resolve but we didn't use it that much to make it matter. Now our main email is not working. It stopped working on the 12th of July. We are not getting emails and our business RELIES on this. We are at a total loss. I've tried everything. I can send email from the main which is no longer working to the other one that still works but cannot send anywhere outside that. I'm not real knowledgeable with this stuff but I did empty the trash. We had 4 years of trash emails that needed dumped so I did that. Still notihing. The server is a POP3 and the port is correct. 110 is the default on all 3. The outgoing server (SMTP) what ever that is, is the default server for the email that is not working. WE ARE DESPERATE HERE. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP US.

When I went from Windows 7 to Windows 10, I thought I copied my profile folder from one computer to the other and then edited the profile.ini folder to use my old profile. That apparently doesn't work anymore. So, I uninstalled Thunderbird and restarted my computer. Reinstalled Thunderbird thinking I would have a fresh install. No, my old profile and edited profile.ini file are still there. How do I get rid of the changes that I made and transfer Thunderbird the correct way? TIA

Two emails arrive, and the badge displaying "2" appears on the taskbar icon for T-bird V. 115, POP, on a Windows 11 computer. There are no other unread emails. One email is read, and the 2 remains, instead of decrementing to 1. Then the second unread email is read, and the "2" still remains. The only way to get rid of the "2", which is now a false reading, is to close and reopen T-bird. Is there any reason, other than a bug, for the badge on the T-bird icon to be entirely unresponsive to reading all the remaining emails in the list? Are any Win 11 settings relevant for this issue area? [T-bird was downloaded yesterday, so up to date.]

In working with T-Bird and trying to scroll an email, or sometimes scrolling folders (targets of rules) T-bird will stop responding. I have had this happen on two different W11 machines. ALT-F4 does not terminate T-Bird. I have to do the 3 finger salute, get into task manager and kill it from there. It will restart as if nothing happened. 115.8.1 (64-bit) is the level I am using. I see a new level is available, so I will try that in a while. (handling multiple tasks...).

Had a Windows update, and it apparently screwed up Thunderbird. Can't block delete messages, and the write message screen size changed - it's now all the way across the screen. That's just for openers - can't imagine what else might be screwed up.

Tried "troubleshooting" and it didn't work, and have no idea how, or if, the changes from the Windows update can be reversed.

Thanks very much for your help. I've been using Thunderbird for many years, but the mail has become almost unusable - if mail can't be fixed, what do you recommend to replace Thunderbird?
