Setting up additional "dummy" inbox to download messages from yahoo server

Not sure of the best way to ask this. I am using TB 102.13 on a win 7 pro desktop machine.

Cox recently ported my email acount to Yahoo. There are about 100K emails in my cox inbox that were ported to yahoo. After modifying the server settings in TB so that I can use TB with the Yahoo server (I use POP settings), TB now sees all of the 100K emails as new, and each time I click the "get messages" button it starts downloading all of the 100K emails. I closed out of TB to stop the download.

I am told that in order for TB to only download actual new emails from the Yahoo server, I must let this process run. However, my official TB inbox uses about 30 filters to place incoming emails into the correct folders as they are downloaded.

All I want is to download the emails currently on the Yahoo server into a new created "dummy" inbox folder so that after the massive download, I can delete the folder and get back to being able to use TB appropriately. Can someone provide a 'how to" for doing this? TIA

I back up my TB profile every few months. I just went thru the Cox-Yahoo email conversion and I am getting emails. When I did my back up, I noticed in the properties it had one more folder and the files went from 1311 to 2585 files. Is something wrong? Do I need to compare and research what is causing this or just move on!

Intermitent SMTP errors

We have recently moved to a new mail server. We currently have about 20 Thunderbird email clients on Windows in an office location and a macOS home machine. On all machines email is configured to use IMAP on hostname.com port 993 SSL/TLS with Normal Password and SMTP on hostname.com port 465 SSL/TLS with Normal Password.

The home machine is working 100% with no issues, it does have a much faster and lower latency internet connection than the office machines.

Many of the office machines are experiencing intermitent SMTP error messages when sending, intermitent, "unable to save mail in the Sent folder of the Inbox", messages and intermitent unable to move messages between folders.

I have checked and double checked the settings on affected machines - however, I believe a settings issue would result in nothing working, not intermitent functionality. Plus all is working fine on the home machine with the same settings (different OS, but ports and security settings all dictated by server).

With one client behaving properly, the server likwise behaving properly when addressed by the working client and the intermitent nature of the problems we are finding, I suspect we have some sort of network issue. Somthing timing out or a firewall/AV software causing a delay.

I have increased mailnews.tcptimeout on affected machines to 250 based on a forum article but this has had no effect (No idea of units here but if it is seconde then I am not supprised - the SMTP errors, when they happen are almost instantanious).

Any ideas on how to trobleshoot this problem further - The problem seems to get worse through the day, although that may just be peoples tollerance of an intermitent issue going down.

Hi there I must say having used Thunderbird for probably ten or more years that V115 has been a big pain in the butt to get used to. Why change everything? It was fine before.

OK I can get used to a completely different layout and changed menus even though I don;'t want to but I cannot figure out how to change the background from solid black which I hate. I have spent several days on and off looking for an easy way to do this and can't find it.

So now I go to write an email and the black screen doesn't show anything with black letters of course?? What is the reason for this? So I have to change font over and over to white color.

When I read new emails no problem background is white and font is black like a normal screen. Who had this bright idea?? Please give me a simple solution not involving Css whatever programming such stuff I cannot figure out and don't want to learn. Thanks so much

In the past, I could click on an email address and drag it into a new subfolder I'd made (let's say for emails to a group about baking). Easy as pie!

Sorry for the bad pun.

Now, when I try to click and drag, it will NOT go into that subfolder. I looked in Help and there were answers about csv files, about a horizontal or vertical view, etc. None of that made sense to me.

So I'm wondering if it's still somehow an easy thing to do, to duplicate someone's email in one or more other folders. It seems like it should be! Thanks, Su

In my inbox I see a couple of emails that (once opened, or even seeing preview) are not associated correctly to the original email sent or received. It's quite odd as it happened only a couple of times, but even after updating, rebooting and moving these messages, they are still showing the wrong addressee and content.

In the attached screenshot you can see the example. Looking forward to receiving your help. Best regards, Nuno

Greetings, recently our pc was attacked ,malware. A new windows program was installed. This resulted in some apps being deleted. One of which was the Firefox email. Inspite of many attempts to reinstate it I have had no success. There is great difficulty in finding what to do to reinstall. There are assumptions that I have particular information. Other than our 3 email addresses we do have any code numbers or passwords, as these to were also lost. As it has been several days since the "repair" the inability to access Firefox with historic emails is now creating a number of serious issues. I need urgent help in reinstalling our Firefox email. My inability to find that one person who I know can help is out there. The FAQ were of no help. The request how to reinstall Firefox does not appear to be a FAQ. Ross.

Hi everyone, My Thunderbird yesterday - without doing any unusual chances that know of - went weird. Whenever I open the programme now it shows a completely different interface and I can't navigate back in any way to the usual calendar, email, contacts. It also seems to be frozen, because when I click settings it doesn't open any window. I have attached a screenshot of how it looks now.

Could anyone help me out on how to get back to regular Thunderbird? I am also a bit worried of losing all my contacts / calendar.

Let me know if there's more info I can give from my end. Any help very much appreciated.

On Mac Sonoma 14.4, Thunderbird 115.12.2

When I try add my Gmail account or calendar account, the Gmail sign-in prompt page comes up but is entirely blank and does not load. When I restart my laptop I can sometimes get the page to load but when I allow my account to be connected, the next page does not load still. So the authentication process does not finish. The result is the same whether I enter my password on Thunderbird or not.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Thunderbird, and downgraded to an older version. Same issue.

I am not sure if it is a Mac issue but I am only having the issue with Thunderbird.
