Thunderbird and Gmail, sending emails

Question: Thunderbird and Gmail, sending emails

I've set up my Gmail account for reading emails via IMAP and sending emails all with Mozilla's Thunderbird. I followed Google's directions on how to setup the client to work with Thunderbird. It reads the emails correctly but when I send emails I get:
"An error occured while sending mail. The mail server responded: INCORRECT DOMAIN IN MAIL/RCPT COMMAND. Please verify that your email address is correct in your Mail preferences and try again."

As it suggests I check the outgoing mail setting and try again with the same results.

Has anyone else run into this issue and how did you resolve it?

Preferred Solution: Thunderbird and Gmail, sending emails

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Thunderbird and Gmail, sending emails

Not sure. I remember setting my GMail up for pop, but not IMAP. I would post something over on the Mozilla support forums - more people read that and could help.

then i get another error message:
'Sending of message failed.
The message could not be sent because the connection to SMTP server smtp.ntlworld.com was lost in the middle of the transaction. Try again or contact your network administrator.'

Answer:Thunderbird not sending emails

You are not alone. There seems to be a problem with Virgin servers in some areas. There have been a few threads about tnis.

I use AVG as proxy which might have something to do with it, but if I write an email offline and save it in DRAFTS it appears to go when I press SEND after going on line, but tho' the dialogue box says the mail has been sent to 127.0.0.1, the proxy, it doesn't say it's being delivered. Sure enough intended addressees say that they don't get the email. Anybody else suffer from this, and what's the solution please?

Answer:Thunderbird not sending emails

127.0.0.1 is 'localhost' - your computer. That is why they are not being sent. But I don't know what the root cause is.

I have just transferred to Plusnet from Talktalk and find that i cannot send emails although I have no0 problem receiving them. i have the latest issue of thunderbird which appears to have no provision for changing the outgoing server settings. Also sometimes when trying to open Thunde3rbird a get messages telling me that it is already running, (which it is not.)
any suggestions? Thunderbird help pages do not mention Plus net as a recognised ISP.

Until yesterday Thunderbird was sending & receiving mail OK & has done for a few years.
Now when I try to reply to mail or create new mail the prog just hangs.
There is no error message.
I am stll receiving all mail.
I am running three accounts on different outgoing servers Virgin media & google & all have the same problem.
I have uninstalled, downloaded a new Thunderbird. It has picked up all the old mail & continues to receive but won't send.
Running XP Service pack 3
Mail will still go out if sent direct from google or virgin.
Any ideas as I am at a loss and as there is no error message I don't know what else to try?

I have been trying to follow this guide to get my local emails uploaded onto Gmail:

http://www.zoliblog.com/2007/10/24/simplified-guide-to-importing-all-your-archive-email-into-gmail/

Unfortunately it seems that this guide is for Outlook users, and I use thunderbird. Does anybody know of a way to import local emails from Thunderbird to Gmail?

I've heard of the "Gmail Loader" program, but AFAIK this program will strip the emails of their original send dates. What I'd really like is for a solution where all my local messages can be sent and stored on Gmail, with the original sender information retained, and the original send dates retained. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Import thunderbird emails to Gmail

Here are the instructions from gmail to enable IMAP in thunderbird -> http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=77662

Just attach to GMAIL via IMAP and the drag and drop you saved local email to GMAIL through thunderbird.

Make sure you enable IMAP in your GMAIL settings under Settings -> Forwarding and POP/IMAP.

For years I have used my own domain email addresses hosted with Gmail for all my email requirements, and have had no problems. My settings with Gmail are such that the message on the server is deleted once it has been accessed via Thunderbird.
One thing confuses me though. If I am away on holiday, I sometimes access my messages directly from Gmail using a tablet, and as most of them are unimportant, I then delete them manually from Gmail and then also delete them from the 'bin' folder. However, when I return home at the end of the holiday and switch on my PC, all the messages are then downloaded to Thunderbird, though I have deleted them previously.
Obviously the reason for accessing them on holiday is to avoid having hundreds of messages when I return home, but clearly I am failing to achieve this. Can somebody please explain why this happens, and how I stop it.

i've been having trouble being able to set up my thunderbird and entourage email clients...i can recieve emails perfectly fine but i cannot reply. my boyfriend said it's something to do with my ISP, which is sbc...and they don't allow you to send emails through clients like these.

any suggestions or ideas on how i can get this working?
 

Answer:trouble sending emails through thunderbird/entourage...

You need to use the SMTP settings from your ISP.
In Tbird click on Tools/Account Settings, then the last entry on the left that says Outgoing Server (SMTP).
Under Server Name, put in the SBC-server entry on port 25.
You MAY also need to put your userID/Password in there.
SBC has nothing to say WHICH email client you use!

If you have started or migrated to Yahoo then your email settings will be:
Incoming Mail Server: pop.sbcglobal.yahoo.com
Outgoing Mail Server: smtp.sbcglobal.yahoo.com

If your email is @sbcglobal.net then:
Incoming Mail Server: pop.sbcglobal.net
Outgoing Mail Server: smtpauth.sbcglobal.net
For details see: http://global.swbell.net/help/sims/

I have been using Mozilla Thunderbird for over a year now with no problems.

I have 3 separate accounts running from the system.

Yesterday out of the blue I get the same error message when trying to send an email from any of the 3 accounts.

"Sending of message failed.
The message could not be sent because connecting to SMTP server www.iigloo.co.uk failed. The server may be unavailable or is refusing SMTP connections. Please verify that your SMTP server settings are correct and try again, or contact the server administrator."

Now this happens on all 3 accounts, I haven't updated anything on my system.

Until two days ago I had no problems sending gmail via SMTP.gmail.com. Now I get an error message saying 'Your outgoing server does not support SSL-Secured connections." No changes were made to the email account settings. I have checked them : the ports are correct and the SSL box is ticked for both incoming and outgoing ports. I use Norton and MS and both do automatic updates from time to time. I wonder if some update is causing the difficulty? Any ideas about what could be blocking my outgoing messages would be appreciated.

As I have a couple of Gmail accounts, I use Outlook 2010 (running under Windows 7) to consolidate them together and use it for reading, sending and archiving all my emails.
Until recently I have been able to manage my emails without problem, but within the past few weeks I have run into problems sending emails using Outlook for my Gmail accounts. Messages are stored in my Outbook but will not send. This does not happen all of the time, only intermittently, and even if I press the send/receive button, or reboot Outlook 2010, the messages remain in the outbox.
The only way I have managed to send them is to reboot my PC and then restart Outlook - then the messages send automatically as they normally should do and the outbox is cleared. However after a while, and not on every Outlook session, the messages do not send from Outlook unless I reboot my PC again.
I have checked my email settings and as far as I can tell they are OK (as they normally work):
Incoming mail server: pop.gmail.com and port 995
Outgoing mail server: smtp.gmail.com and port 465
and outgoing server set to require authentication.
I get no error messages - the emails just remain in the outbox until I reboot the PC.
Can anybody advise how I can resolve this issue?
Many thanks for your help.

The question really says all about what I want to do, or need help on. I recently signed up for a new outlook account to try out the new outlook preview and I've set up gmail to automatically forward new messages to my outlook account so that I can use outlook to manage my gmail account.

Do any of you know how I would be able to forward the old messages, and not the new ones, to my outlook? I already know that they can be fetched into outlook by outlook's very own service, forwarding would be faster, so..?! Also, since I now use outlook to send email on behalf of my gmail account, how do I make it sync each email I send using outlook with my gmail - so that gmail has it all?

TY in advance. Please do help.

MS Office Outlook sending emails but no emails to send? I have added a few new accounts to my outlook and have had nothing but problems since. It is important that I keep these emails in my outlook, because I work from home and need to access these accounts. I have recently noticed, whenever I hit send receive, the number rises everyday, which now has me concerned. Each account has a different amount "sending", but nothing is in the outbox. IE: account A: sending 1 of 135, Account B: sending 1 of 1020 and so on. I also read online somewhere that if I was a torrent user, that "is" my problem, but I have stopped using it for weeks and there is no traffic going in or out, and I've turned the program off completely.

I've used Outlook for years, with many accounts and have never had problems. I've noticed more problems since this 'sending' message has started. I also noticed, I was the ONLY one at work not getting any SPAM for at least 2 yrs, UNTIL, I took a few days off, went back to work and BAM, hit with SPAM. Its a bloody nuisance because my accounts are linked with "rules and alerts", so if one is infected, all others follow behind! Has one or all of my accounts been compromised? If so, can it be fixed?

Last night I went to add Thunderbird and it could not connect to Gmail. Today I get a email from Gmail saying that it prevented someone from logging into my account last night (which would have been me). It says it does this to protect me from less secure apps like Outlook and Thunderbird. So, is Thunderbird less secure or is this another part of the plot for Google to control the world?
 

Answer:Thunderbird and Gmail

Thunderbird and Outlook clients both work just fine with Gmail but your Gmail account online need to be configured correctly first. The settings are under Forwarding and POP/IMAP. Once you have done that you can then configure your account in the clients.

Before changing emails accounts to gmail, have you tried checking your settings for your Virgin accounts in Thunderbird? To do this, Tools, Account Options and then click on your account/s in the left hand pane, working your way down from the account name do the account settings etc.
Also, you could try deleting your Virgin account and then re-set it up after checking what settings you need. You could do a search in Google for the settings you need, so as to be sure you have the right settings in the first place.
Apologies if I'm 'teaching you to suck eggs'. I appreciate you may have already tried this
Failing all that, certainly try gmail account. Good luck. Post back with any progress or otherwise. I'm sure others, probably with far more knowledge than myself, will be posting more suggestions too.

I'm using thunderbird and I have a gmail email address. I really like using Thunderbird but the one thing I don't like is that when I check my mail with thunderbird it removes it from gmail so I can only see my mail on my local computer. I'd like to set it up (if possible) that checking my mail in thunderbird would not remove it in gmail. And what would be awesome is if I delete an email in thunderbird, it moves it to the trash in gmail.

have been using gmail on thunderbird via IMAP, works great most of the time, havwe a question.

On the folders on the left of the thunderbird screeen I noticed i have created some as subfolders of "[gmail]" and some as subfolders of the top item in the list, ie my gmail address. Having checked that they are all stored on gmail not remotely they are, however, those folders that are stored under "[gmail]" are prefixed as such, those under the top item (my address) are prefixed by IMAP.

What does this mean? Should I create all my folders under "gmail" or the top item if I want to store them all online??

Thanks!
 

Answer:Gmail via thunderbird

Store them on the top itemif you want them online..Store them in you created folders if you'd like them as offline..

Hi,

Yes, it's quite straightforward.

Simply create a new account and specify your name, gmail user account and gmail account password. Accept the default IMAP setting, and select Create Account. Voila!

Hello,
hope its ok to talk about TB in this forum
I bumped into a problem with sending messages: when i m not online, but working online in TB, it will not automatically place the messages in the outbox; rather it will try to connect to smtp server and respond that 'connection failed'. Is there any way to fix this? (either through settings or 'config' ) so it will take notice of the actual dial-up present, not its inside status.
Also, would be very greatful for any suggestions to make it auto-disconnect after the messages are sent/received
Thanks in advance for any comments!

Poblem when trying to send or save on Thunderbird. First there is a request for a password. Nothing seems to be right on that front. Then a blackened dialogue box appears.Do I need to reinstall this software?Could it be to do with too long file names, too much saved data or a computer virus. I have Kaspersky installed

Answer:Sending failure in Thunderbird

Has Thunderbird been installed and working for a while? Is this a sudden change and can you tie it to any other recent problems with the system?Try running Malwarebytes to double check for infections. If any, remove them and post the log back here for a look at. Note, when installing it, uncheck the free trial box so you get the free version.I have in the past had a problem once with Thunderbird on outgoing mail and the only way that fixed it for me was to delete the email account in Thunderbird and reenter the information. As many times as I 'fixed' the information, nothing worked but as soon as I deleted the account and reentered it with the same information, all was fine. Maybe that will work for you if other things do not.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I'm posting this here because I think this is a security issue.

I decided to archive all my Gmail messages by downloading them to my computer via Thunderbird. However, after I installed the program and entered in my account information (it even seemed to auto configure properly), the message I get is ?Configuration could not be verified ? in the username or password wrong?? I found some information that, with changes to Gmail, only a specific version of Thunderbird going forward would work. I downloaded the latest one. When looking into Google security, there is a new permission page setup that you have to give permission to Android apps so that they can be allowed to access your account information. However, I don?t know how to give Thunderbird permission.

Is there a way to give Thunderbird permission to access your Gmail?

Hello everyone. I have a friend who has a few PC's, one is hers, one is her husbands, and another is at a vacation home. They have a Gmail account they share and all of the PC's have the latest version of Thunderbird with the Gmail account setup in it. What they're finding is that if one Thunderbird client downloads a message then it's unavailable for the other clients to download. We've checked the settings in Thunderbird and they're all set to leave the items in the Gmail inbox until they are deleted manually. Any thoughts on why this happens? Is this normal and it's just not possible for a shared mailbox to work in the way they'd like it to work? If this just can't work is there an e-mail option out there that will work?

Now I get duplicates of every email sent and received in their relative boxes/folders.

Hi,

I installed Thunderbird email client for my gmail account.

When I started to add account I found one options specially for Gmail. Wow! Nice, I thought I proceeded. It was simple and it started to work. Thunderbird was using POP this way.

Next when I checked Google's directions for adding account to Thunderbird, they tell to use IMAP. Completely different procedure.

Should I use IMAP or POP? Why does Google gives directions to use IMAP for Thunderbird but POP for rest like Outlook, Outlook Express and Eudora?

Please someone explain. Thanks in advance

Answer:Thunderbird and gmail confusion

Hello Romeo29,

You can use POP or IMAP for either one. Here is the difference. With IMAP mail, when messages are downloaded to your e-mail client's Inbox, they also remain on the server. In other words, if you shut off your computer, went to the library, and opened your g-mail account in webmail, you would see all your messages that were previously downloaded to your inbox at home.

Now, let's say that you decided, while on web-mail, to delete some of those messages in the inbox. When you go back home, open your e-mail client, the client will reload the messages from the inbox, but the ones you deleted from the inbox while on the webmail interface will now be gone from the inbox in Thunderbird as well.

Now, if you are using POP, the messages downloaded to your Inbox will no longer be in the Inbox on the webmail interface. Now here is what is rather interesting with g-mail in contrast to some other e-mail providers. All messages that were downloaded to your computer you can still find in the trash box on g-mail's webmail interface. With other e-mail providers, those messages would no longer be on the server at all.

Going back to I-MAP. If you are using an e-mail client, if you move messages from your inbox to local folders, with most e-mail providers, those messages would now be gone from the provider's servers. With g-mail, those messages will appear in Trash. If you move messages to folders you create under the e-mail account, those messages will then appear in ... Read more

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!

What I WANT to do is move all of my Hotmail/OE folders and contacts to TBird, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to do that without moving all of my settings, which I might need HotPopper for, no? (after this I would setup my GMail account in TBird)

Let's say I can move all of my folders and contacts. I don't need my Hotmail addy to work in TBird, but I DO want to setup my GMail addy in TBird to use with all of my ex-Hotmail folders & contacts. That shouldn't be a problem, right?

Then I'll send out my message from Hotmail.com to everyone (with my GMail addy as reply-to), and just keep monitoring my Hotmail account for messages that need to know of my change to my Gmail addy.

Can anyone see anything I'm missing here? Anything that might make this transition easier

I?m using mozilla thunderbird as my email client. Following gmails instructions on how to set up your gmail account through thunderbird, I typed in all the server names and ports and selected SSL and all that as they said. I am running the internet through a proxy so I have set up the proxy in thunderbird correctly as well. When I attempt to ?Get Mail,? a small message comes up saying ?Failed to connect to server pop.gmail.com? Before that it does say looking up pop.gmail.com down the bottom.What could possibly be wrong? I have also turned on POP in gmail settings as well.If you have any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.

In last Sunday's Observer there was an article about Gmail, explaining the many things that it includes.Confusingly for me, the screen, layout and controls were completely different from my version of Gmail.....which I thought was the only version! I have Gmail running through Thunderbird and I'm wondering if this is the reason it looks completely different. Although my emails work perfectly and always have, can anyone tell me why mine is so different?

I cannot check my e-mail using IMAP in Thunderbird.

I was able to a few weeks ago without problem. Suddenly, I get the whole "Login to imap.googlemail.com failed" error. I am asked to enter my password, which I do, however Thunderbird thinks the password is incorrect for some reason.

I have attempted to google this error, but nearly every instance involves the @gmail.com domain. However, that's not my domain I'm trying to connect with. I'm trying to connect through [email protected], which is associated with Gmail. I have also checked VT's site on resolving these issues, which tells me to use the proper ports and the proper imap site. However, this still doesn't work.

Neither imap.googlemail.com or imap.gmail.com is working. Every one gets the same "login to server imap.gmail.com / imap.googlemail.com (depending on the IMAP server I am trying to connect with) failed".

I've done everything I can think of to force this client to comply. I've enabled IMAP in VT Gmail. I've also set SSL on.

I'm pretty much stumped. I have been able to connect to Gmail without problem previously, and then all of a sudden one day this doesn't work. It's very frustrating. If anyone has any potential solutions, please let me know.

Edit: I found out I can forward my email, and then receive it on another account. It'll have to do.

At so far un-explainable times ( both when It is idle and when I am surfing and interacting with web pages ) T-bird will open and try to connect to my gmail account ( whichI have fortunately not given my password so its stuck at the password window) and if not closed or interacted with will continue periodically to open multiple instances of t-bird and its password request window to gmail. Sometimes twenty ormore instances at once. [ The last instance was while registering for this forum just after I typed in my email address ( possible co-incidence?)]

Attached are both the startup list and the process list from hijack this.


Any help figuring this one out will be appreciated I am stumped.



This is the startup list from hijack this....

Answer:Thunderbird trying to contact gmail on its own repeatedly

I seriously doubt this is a malware issue. It is more likely a setting you have in T-bird. If you want us to check for malware you need to do what Halo linked you to when he edited and approved your post.

Hi:

I had to change my password on Gmail and now no messages are coming through to Thunderbird. I went into My Accounts and changed the password. I tried changing from POP to IMAP. Nothing worked. I'd rather have POP but I have a feeling my settings are wrong. However, I can't find what they should be.

Hoping someone can help with this.

Many thanks,
Jane

I have 4 gmail and one ISP email accounts operating with Mozilla Thunderbird. I use my cell phone as a modem with GSM or 3G connection. I get totally confused with multiple messages - unable to send connection timed out, unable to send to sent folders. Mails in outbox can remain for days without my being able to send. Sometimes unable to save as draft. Result - I don't know whether messages have been sent or not. Sometimes lose messages completely. Read incoming messages may be recieved two or three times before being finally marked as read - even when I mark them as read!
The problems may be with our 'third world' connections but I believe that there are problems with Thunderbird. Has anyone had the same problem? More importantly, what is the solution - apart from going back to Outlook or handling each gmail account separately via google. Reluctant to do that since I only established multiple accounts because of Thunderbird's ability to use common boxes.

Answer:Thunderbird mail - Gmail password won't work - why?

I had a similar problem. Delete the email address and re-add it as a new address. When you then put in the password, it will work. I am not sure what the problem is, but I had this on two systems and this fixed both. The first time was very frustrating and took a while before I decided that I had enough and was finally willing to try what I was sure would work but thought that it should be much easier just changing a setting ot trying again, and again, and again.... It was much easier to delete the email account and add it back again. There may be a few settings that you need to redo, but that is simple.Good luck.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Hello everyone,
I have downloaded thunderbird on MS vista and set up an account with my gmail account. I set up the settings for checking the new mails in every 5 minutes. Thunderbird has downloaded a lot of mails from gmail (about 5440) but after that it says no new mail on the server. but the last mail it downloaded is on 5th may 2008. I have a lot of mails after 5th may even on my gmail account. I am not getting how to download all the mails from my gmail account. I will be very happy if I can get all my gmail mails in thunderbird so that I can access them at any time offline.

Thanks in anticipation...

I am collecting mail on my GMail account using Thunderbird and there is obviously a setting in GMail that I don't understand.

I have two addresses that GMail is aware of. We'll call them [email protected] and [email protected]. Obviously, the recovery e-mail address is just that, intended for use only when things go sideways and I might need to recover a lost password or something like that.

When people send mail to [email protected], I also get a duplicate of that same message at [email protected]. I am tired of having to delete all of those mails from [email protected]. They shouldn't be going there in the first place. How can I stop them from going there?

Okay here is my dilemma.

I want to use my Gmail account in work. Now as you may not know websense blocks gmail coming through so what I have done is download Mozilla Thunderbird and set up Gmail as I have for accessing it at home.

However at this stage I cannot get my emails through as Websense stops it.

I believe there is a way whereby I can set up my account so that it will bounce off one server and get past websense..

Apparently it can be done as I have spoken to a few people about this, now these guys are people I have interviewed so would not be overly professional of me to begin asking them how I can do this.

Any help is appreciated Gentlemen.

If you plan to use thunderbird then I would suggest the following: 1. Setup and install Thunderbird2. Setup GMAIL account with IMAP to sync all your mail to the thunderbird client3. Do a profile backup with MozBackup (http://kb.mozillazine.org/MozBackup)4. Rip that to CD/DVD/Flash driveIf you want something more universal for Outlook or others, use Gmail Backup (http://www.gmail-backup.com/).

Someone seems to be sending emails from my gmail account to my contacts. However, there is no record of the emails in my sent items. I've had people forward me the messages that were sent (usually a random link), and gmail flags them as suspicious. The only record I have of them is that occasionally they show up in my spam when the address is wrong and they bounce back (there is usually a error message that says " It seems to be a fake "bounce" reply to a message that you didn't actually send.")

I've changed my password several times, forwarded the email headers to google, turned on two-step verification and checked for any suspicious login activity. Any suggestions on what to do to fix this?

Thanks!
