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) ?

Hi, can you help with this? When I startup Thunderbird, the programme opens but then spends 20-30 minutes downloding all emails in every/most folders ie in-box, all mail, deleted, starred etc. They seems to be already there in each folder. During this time my hard dirve is fully occupied with this and basically makes it very difficult to do anything else until, in layman's term it 'catches up'. Is this normal or do I have a bug in the programme, if so how can I sort this time consuming problem? Thanks Keith

Hello. Thunderbird displays HTML blockquotes with a border-left style (even if no border-left style is defined in the message). How can I disable this behaviour ?

I would like to see incoming and outgoing HTML messages in an "unaltered" WYSIWYG way (as much as possible) so that I can see what I truly send/receive. (For example, I don't want to see the blue left quote border in outgoing messages when the recipient won't see them and, conversely, I don't want to see blue left quote borders if the sender didn't send them.)

I would be most thankful if anybody knows a solution without userChrome (because I don't want to over-override Thunderbird's style override, but disable it in the first place). Thank you so much!

I just migrated to a new computer. I like having all my different email addresses as different inboxes in Thunderbird. Years ago when I first starting using Thunderbird the 'Local Folders' folder was tagged to the first email I entered. Is there a way to un-link that email to that folder? I would like it to be its own folder and have no email address associated with 'Local Folders'. Is that possible?

I have used Thunderbird as my email client for years. A while ago I noticed 'nstmp' folders that I did not create and that I can not get rid of. They are subfolders of the 'inbox' under 'Local Folders'. I tried deleting them in Thunderbird (right click, select delete) but that just gets the 'processing' circle of death. I tried deleting them from the program files for Thunderbird. No luck.

Any other suggestions? They do not affect the program but they annoy me and the number slowly grows. I just got a new computer and thought I would try to fix the problem one more time.

I have a strange setup in Outlook 365 where my inbound and outbound server settings use two different email addresses and I was able to confirm that I can create this same configuration within Thunderbird. I'm not yet ready to switch from Outlook 365 yet but I'd like to know if Thunderbird can do the following:

I have several email accounts that all forward their emails to the email address that configured for the inbound server. Within Outlook I can setup rules that that allow me to automatically move these emails into separate folders when mail arrives so that only mail not defined by a rule ends up within the inbox. Does Thunderbird have that same capability?

I have many emails that I've read and wish to keep in separate folders. Does Thunderbird have any capability to migrate these retained emails from their current Outlook folder to a corresponding folder in Thunderbird? I literally have hundreds of emails I must keep.

Does Thunderbird have an option to migrate contacts from Outlook to Thunderbird or another source like contacts within a GMAIL account?

There are sites, including yahoo that all my comments are coming back as "comment failed to publish" or other sites where comment section just not there.

If there' something I've done or not done to have this happen, let me know. It DOES NOT happen when I use, as example Edge or anyone else. Thanks......Mike

I stored my profile at a custom location (windows) and then ported to the profile folder over to ubuntu linux,

when I start thunderbird with that profile directory though, I only restore basic information about the accounts, but none of the cached emails and also none of the passwords, I have to relogin which even prompts e.g. google to reask for 2fa.

So how do I port everything over, including cached messages and passwords so I don't need to relogin/redownload emails?

Hi!

I couldn't find any decent TB or TB Forums Articels about this.

Instead best instructions seems to be here:

https://kb.uconn.edu/space/IKB/26063831538/Configure+Thunderbird+client+to+use+OAuth+for+IMAP%2F+POP

Especially at the end were it say's:

"Click “Done,” a Microsoft log in window should pop up"

That info is totally mssing in those TB Articels I've found.

And with the help from that page I managed to add one of my MS Account to TB (as IMAP), BUT not as a POP3 account that it has always been set as.

And if I try to add an MS Account as POP3 WITH OAuth2 in TB, this "Microsoft log in window should pop up" never shows at all! And then the account ain't working = TB can't poll for mail.

And I can't find out how to Convert/Change an existing IMAP/OAuth2 MS account to be a POP3/OAuth2 account ?! Is that at all possible?

(And why doesn't TB have a PopUp Windows (as in old Outlook Express and Win Live Mail) for when it polls for mail, so one can see what happens with every account, and then clearly read in that windows IF there were something wrong at any specific account. The TB "Activity Manager" doesn't show these thing, but it should!)

(Also TB should check for new mail in ALL Folders, as in SPAM (GMail), in JUNK (MS), and in TRASH, it could be a Setting for each account (or General) to make TB do that.)

/Thanx!

Windows 11 root drive failed. With new drive and fresh install I reloaded my email from back-up and all went well!

Of course I lost email between last back-up and drive failure (as expected). I have subsequently been able to recover data from the failed drive and I can see the data from the time between back-up and drive failure.

Is there any mechanism to merge those message back into my active mail storage?

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?
