Hi guys,

I have a couple of questions ... I would like to open a brand new FREE TB account.
So far I can not find a free account. The cheapest is $7.75/year.

Is there a way to create a second free account on TB?? (I have one already).
There is a prompt gandi.net there. Is it free (it doesn't say anything)??? If so HOW do I choose it? What is my next step???

I neep your help with it, please.
Thanks in advance!

Hi, seems simple, but the guidance I've seen seems not to be what I'm looking for. All I want is to create a 2nd TB email so that I can basically "backup" a ton of emails by importing them into the new email account. I have a PC w/Windows 7 home pro.

I have the latest version of Thunderbird installed on my new Win 8.1 pc laptop.

I was able to create and currently have 11 email accounts set up.

However, it will not create any new accounts.

Each attempt to enter the new account (after manual config) stalls saying "password OK" after clicking done.

It never actually creates the account and the create account window just stays open unless I click cancel (done is grayed out)

If I attempt to re-enter the information I get a pop-up error message "Incoming server already exists."

I attempted what has been suggested by several various posts all over the web:

I copied the "profile" folder from this installation.
I then deleted then reinstalled Thunderbird.
I then replaced the new profile files/folders with those from the previous copied folder.

The same thing occurs in "Safe Mode"

On an additional note: Thunderbird is not saving passwords - with each restart I must re-enter the passwords for all accounts.

I have a client I'm trying to help with an e-mail issue. I was handling this remotely and can't give you much info about the system beyond the fact that he is running Windows 7. 
He has Outlook 2007 on the system and was previously popping his Gmail into Outlook and everything was working fine. Then he bought a tablet and set his e-mail up on the tablet and says that the next time he tried to get to his e-mail on his computer it didn't work. 
I first tried to set up a new account in Outlook using IMAP. I followed Gmails guidelines and triple checked the settings so I know they are correct. It still wouldn't work and just rendered a generic error saying the servers couldn't be contacted. 
The client then agreed to try Thunderbird. I attempted to set up the account in Thunderbird but it said the password was not valid. I then re-checked his e-mail address and had him enter his password again. Still didn't work. 
Out of curiosity I then entered the information one of my own Gmail accounts and again it said the password was incorrect. I then entered the information for one of my Yahoo accounts, and again it said the information was incorrect. 
At this point, I am at a loss as to where to go from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Using MovBackup I moved my Firefox and Thunderbird accounts from a windows xp pc to a new pc with windows 7. Firefox opened with my old profile and all my bookmarks, looks just like the setup I had on the old computer. Thunderbird opened with my profile, email address, address book BUT the inbox is empty even though the profile file for inbox is huge. I had some problems with the program asking me for passwords over and over again, but I verfified that my passwords were correct. How do I get Thunderbird to download my old emails into the inbox?
I read a topic in this forum about thunderbird and windows 7 and the answer referred the person to thunderbird tutorials. You should know they do not cover this problem. They do not mention transferring from one computer to another.

I had no trouble installing and setting up her Comcast account in Thunderbird.

Hi, thanks for taking the time to view this post, i just hope someone can help.

I have recently had to reinstall my Op system (WinXP) and i have now noticed that i cant send emails via Thunderbird , but i can still receive

I think i have setup Thunderbird correctly, i followed the instructions found on the Yahoo, Options, Pop3 Forwarding config webpage. Whenever i try to send a email i get the following error message from Thunderbird

Sending of message failed. The message could not be sent because connecting to the SMTP server smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk failed. The server may be unavailable or is refusing SMTP connections. Please verify that your SMTP server setting is correct and try again.

It looks like to me that the SMTP setting is incorrect but i've triple checked it. A friend of mine is also having the same problem on the same setup as me so it leads me to believe that its something to so with yahoo.co.uk mail accounts.

Any advice will be much appreciated - please let me know if you need any other details.

Upgraded from Windows 7 to Win 10 and was loving it (was). Saw there was a mail app and thought that would be pretty handy. Signed in and since then, I have to log in to my PC as my email address and password.

I don't want that.

How do I revert my existing user back to a non-Windows live user, with a normal, local account and password?

I am happy to not use the Mail app if that's what it takes, but my concern is that the profile I have now has all my icons and docs and stuff and I don't want to go through the hassle of copying over the profile.

There must be a way to undo this change, but I can't find it.

I can only guess that the Account.equals() method in Windows' codebase looks like this:
return this.emailAddress == account.emailAddress;

A while back, I realized I no longer needed my Hotmail address, and set up my Microsoft account to use my G-mail address. This simplified things quite a lot for me. This is the account I use to log into Windows 8.
I just decided to try out the much-hated Mail app, and set up my G-mail account there. After some imperfectness, I thought about just removing it and using Chrome G-mail on its own. However, I ran into this:
They seem to falsely think that my G-mail account is the same as my Microsoft account, when in reality there's no reason I shouldn't be able to remove this. (Heck, it wasn't there 10 minutes ago) Any ideas? If this is a real bug, any way to submit it to Microsoft?

newcomer just looking for an answer to: how one forwards their outlook mail account to an aim.com mail account?

A:How does one forward their outlook mail account to an aim.com mail account?

There are no such things as Outlook mail accounts (in the context of your question anyway). Your mail account is on a server where Outlook fetches mail from.

The better way to set up mail forwarding is on the server. If you have some sort of a web interface or a shell account, then you may be able to set the forward address yourself. Otherwise, talk to the mail server administrator.

You can set up mail filtering rules in Outlook too, which say that whenever Outlook receives a new message, it will send it so somewhere else. This approach is very bad though, since you would have to have your Outlook running 24/7 to keep the forwarding ability.

I have Outlook 2000 Inbox set up as follows:

( Notice the circle around the "Account" tab) But, my friend has Outlook XP and can't get the "Internet Account" tab to show which Internet Account (i.e. Comcast, Yahoo, AOL, etc) that the incoming email is from like mine is with Outlook 2000.

He can only get the "tab" to be displayed that states "Internet Account" but the tab's contents (unlike mine) remain blank when he gets mail from any of the accounts.

Is this done differently in XP compared to 2000 Outlook??? How can I get his "Internet Account" tab to show which account incoming mail is from like mine is in the pic???

I just installed Thunderbird, thought I'd give it a try. I have one oddity that I can't figure out.

All my accounts were imported from Eudora, and except for GMAIL, I got them all working. Since GMAIL was being a PITA, I simply deleted it and created a new account. That went OK, but one oddity remains. Even though GMAIL now works, it doesn't appear in the folder view with all the other accounts. I have refreshed, closed it, compacted folders, etc., no joy.

Anyone got an idea why this particular account doesn't show up?

A:Thunderbird account setup problem?

What version of Thunderbird are you using? With version 0.8 all you should have to do is go to Tools/Account Settings to view all of your account information. From there you can modify your server settings or remove an entire account.

The only thing about Thunderbird I still don't like is that it assumes you will always use the existing SMTP settings when you add a new account. To change SMTP settings, go to Tools/Account Settings, and in the window on the left scroll to the bottom and select "Outgoing Server(SMTP)", then click on the "Advanced" button. This will allow you to add, modify, or remove SMTP servers.

Hope this helps.

A newbie with Ubuntu and Linux, I installed Ubuntu 10.4 on a computer for my wife. We are used to Outlook Express. After using it for a couple of days, my wife hates Evolution. So I downloaded Thunderbird from the standard repository and installed it.

It does look easier (in theory) to move emails between Outlook Express and Thunderbird, so I am trying to configure Thunderbird and will abandon Evolution with its complications, useful to some but unnecessary for us. We just need a simple mail client, no "keyrings" or "calenders" etc etc.

I can't seem to configure Thunderbird accounts. At support.mozillamessaging.com, the instructions for "configuring an account" say to open the account settings by going to Tools|Account Settings. But when I click on Tools, there is no Account Settings on the menu presented. The menu appearing for "Tools" is only as follows:

Address Book
Saved Files
Activity Manager
Message Filters
(some greyed-out options here regarding filtering)
Error Console

...and that's it. No "Account Settings"!!!!

Am I doing something wrong? Are the instructions at support.mozillamessaging incorrect (I was vectored to them from the Ubuntu installation!) Or is this a bug or damaged Ubuntu/Thunderbird installation?

I run Thunderbird and use windows 7 on my laptop. I have two accounts on Thunderbird, one personal and one business. Whenever I click an email link, the personal account comes up by default but I want the business account to appear. I know I can switch accounts to the one I want but sometimes I forget and I send a business email from my personal email account. Is there an easy way to change this. I keep email address on an excel spreadsheet with other account information and I normally just open the spreadsheet and start clicking email addresses to send emails to my customers. It would be great if my business email would be the one to come up as the default address so I don't have to remember to switch accounts before I send.

I currently use Firefox as my Browser and it was suggested I should look at Thunderbird as a replacement for Windows Mail. Subsequently had a look at the features and facilities on Thunderbird and was impressed .

Downloaded it and commenced the set up proceedure.

I have two Email Accounts

I am currently Overseas "Greece" and have a local ISP "Otenet.Gr using IMAP

I have two Email Accounts the local one Otenet.Gr which works fine no problem

The 2nd one is Btinternet.com. This is the one I am having problems with. I can send a message to it but it will not fetch my messages at all .

The Thunderbird Programme has the facility to decipher what the email settings are for each server and those are the ones that I have used in setting up both accounts - as the Otenet.Gr worked ok I was assuming that the BTinternet one would as well but it doesnt.

Any assistance would be most appreciated.

At the beginning of the semester, my school switched their email server to a gmail server. I tried creating an account in thunderbird under the school email. If I set it up as a gmail account, I'm only able to my user name as the "@gmail.com" portion is already filled. Only problem is the school email is still "[email protected]" rather than "@gmail.com"

I then tried creating it as a normal email account. I was able to add the proper email address and used the same settings I used when setting up my person gmail account. Now when I try to retrieve my messages, I get an error stating the server pop.gmail.com responded username and password not accepted.

So I guess my question would be how could I set up my school's gmail account to work with thunderbird. I know it could be done I just don't know how to properly set it up.

Now when it comes to setting up an email client I usually like to stay away. I always get confused and give up. So if all help could be kept simple and painless I'd appreciate it!

Many thanks in advance!

Hello All!

I've got several accounts in my Thunderbird v3.1.10.

I've noticed that depending on which account is highlighted when I click "Write" to compose a new message, that is the account that will be used as the sending account.

This is fine, however I have all of my Sent Items being stored in a single folder for all accounts, which is located under the tree called "Local Folders" in Thunderbird.

When I forward anything from the sent items, it default to what is seemingly just one particular account - one that I really prefer not to send messages from in almost all cases.

Does anyone know where the setting would be to set the default account to use for forwarding messages from the 'Local Folders' / 'Sent' folder?

I'm not sure if this will work for your setup, but I use the Correct Identity extension for this: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thu...rect-identity/
