Many boxes in emails (Gmail using Thunderbird) are empty - no content

Question: Many boxes in emails (Gmail using Thunderbird) are empty - no content

I think this is called 'remote content' but I'm not sure. What steps might I take to remedy this situation? I realize this might be a Mozilla or Google issue - but perhaps someone can give me some options that I can't get in those forums.

Preferred Solution: Many boxes in emails (Gmail using Thunderbird) are empty - no content

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.)

I get notices of mails through thunderbird but with nothing in the body. For example, an ebay message from a potential buyer. I have to go to ebay and check messages to read it. The same happened with an answer from a seller to a question I asked about a product I wanted to buy on amazon. My other emails come in OK.

thanks, Frank

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.

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?
 

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.

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.

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.

Good Morning,
I have had a prolonged problem regarding the lack of arrows to advance some ( most ) webpages, or select new images and text .I usually get a blank visual /audio/picture and no selection keys. On a u-tube video I cannot advance ( due to lack of visibility) on single images , and the same with Popover web sites.....only the loading page shows.
Sometimes there is a blank box to ( no text or arrow ) select and I have to guess what "may" have been there in a normal Vista page.

Answer:empty boxes for advancing pictures, etc

Ill be honest, I do not fully understand your question. If this does not help a screen shot would do the trick.

On desktop right click
personalize
display
then in the left panel

you can adjust the dpi (set custom size)
or
the resolution
Give those a try and see if it helps.
These instuctions will make more or less appear on the screen in the event that the buttons that you refer to are there, but on the right or left of the screen
If this answer is not even close to what you need. Give us a screen shot.

If no one else responds, I will in several hours. I am going off line now.

I?m new to the forum and today is my first day so hopefully I?m following correct procedure. It seems I have almost the same problem as above but with a little twist. That?s why I?m posting it here to consolidate the similar information instead of adding a brand new post.

It seems I have an infection in my IE5. I?ve run AVG anti-virus and Spybot with no detection. However I have 20GB of junk in there. Stuff and characters I?ve never seen before. I?ve tried several methods to clean it out. I tried Delete Browsing History ? Delete All in Internet options. Next I attempted Ccleaner with no luck. I also tried a Glary file shredder with 7 pass and it couldn?t clear it. Finally, I added a new administrator and tried to erase my IE5 from there again no luck.

I don?t know what else to do to clean it. I saw something on here about booting in the safe mode. I know how to boot in safe mode but don?t know where to go from there. Hopefully someone can help me

Thanks,

In safe mode just right click on Internet Explorer and empty all your cookies, cache etc. If you can't clear it then open My computer -> C:\Documents and Settings\<Username>\Local settings\Temporary Internet files\Content.IE5 and try to delete everything inside it.

Hello,
 
For the past few weeks, there have been random popups of completely empty dialog boxes, featuring only 2 buttons (OK and Cancel), appearing on my desktop. I had just finished putting together a new custom PC in early July and I'm still in the process of installing old programs and configuring everything just the way I want it. Please see below for an attached image.
 
As far as I could tell, the popups are completely random. Sometimes one popup would appear and that would be it for the day. Sometimes I would close one and another would follow immediately (It doesn't matter if I hit OK or cancel). A couple of times, I would leave my computer on idle for a few hours, and I would return with literally dozens of those windows cascaded on the desktop.
 
I don't believe they are associated with any specific programs, as they happen while I'm idling and while using other applications. I've ran virus scans, spyware scans, sfc /scannow, memtest...no luck, but like I said, it's pretty much a brand new machine. I also can't seem to match the popups with any specific warnings or errors in the event viewer, so no luck tracing it that way. I've also tried retracing my installation steps and uninstalling and/or doing a system restore to any programs I think are causing it, but the list is pretty slim.
 
Anyway, any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Answer:Random empty dialog boxes on desktop

If you are currently reinstalling...the simple thing to do is do a clean install...install a given app...see if the boxes appear...if not, install another app.
 
If those are Windows boxes, I'd have to question the source/method of installing Win 7...or assume that there is a hard drive problem or that the Windows on the installation media is corrupt.
 
Whatever it is...it seems to me that the best course for solving it is just to start anew and proceed as I have stated.

I'm running Windows XP on a Dell Dimension 8100 with Internet Explorer 6.0 and am experiencing the following problems:

1) On some webpages, drop down boxes are empty. But when I check that same page on my other computer, the boxe have available values.

2) On many retail sites, when I click "see a larger image" of the product, nothing happens. Again on my other computer, typically a new webpage ora popup comes up witht the larger photo.

3) When trying to upload a picture to a website (e.g. eBay) it just hangs. Again, on other computer this works fine.

I checked out my security settings and ensured that pop up blocker was not on. Can't figure out what else is causing the problem.

Any help is appreciated!

Answer:Internet Explorer - Empty Drop Down Boxes and No Pop Ups

If you go to Tools > Options in IE and go to the Security tab what is your Internet zone security settings set at? They should be set at medium by default. Higher settings are more secure but can break some web pages.

If you want to test if security settings are the issue you can either temporarily lower them or add one site that is breaking that you trust to the Trusted Sites zone (uncheck the all sites must require https checkbox) and see if the site works normally.

Also, are you running any security software on the one PC that you're not running on the other?

Hi. Not sure how to explain this. All my old cache used to be stored in the 'Temporary Internet Files\low\Content.IE5' folder that's hidden, however nowadays when I look the four folders in 'Content.IE5' are simply unused. Everything I view in the browser (flv video clips, images, etc) save in 'Temporary Internet Files' only. As I say I know for sure they used to save in the 'Content.IE5' folders so I was wondering if anybody knows why they no longer are? I don't use IE all that often but this is something I've just realised and don't have an answer for. I've tried searching for it online but all I get is accessing the hidden Content folder for files. I'm using Admin (always), in case anybody should mention that.

Oh, and this is for Internet Explorer 8, and Windows x64 (SP 2).

Sorry guys, ignore this - I was confused and added the 'low' part on. Without it it's showing up all the files. I didn't even realise there were two different versions of it. How come?

Because of multiple problems with Windows 7 such as Windows Explorer not working, and Dragon NaturallySpeaking not working I reinstalled an image of Windows 7. Also I did this because off some malware which continually hijacked my browsers. I could not remove these malware hijackers but they did not seem to be related to Thunderbird.

Before reinstalling Windows 7, I made a backup of Thunderbird 17.0.3 with Mozbackup 1.5.1. So now the only backup I have of a pretty heavy mail file is Mozbackup. I was not aware that my Thunderbird was IMAP.

However on restoration using Mozbackup multiple folders are missing and the sent folder is present but it is empty. I am pretty certain that I compacted folders just before running Mozbackup. Normally I compact folders every few days.

I've read multiple solutions and tried some without results possibly because many of them appear to be not applicable (it is not possible to follow the directions because those particular directions do not apply, presumably due to my version of Thunderbird).

I changed the pcv files of the Mozbackup to zip and extracted them to the folder TB_Extracted. The msf and empty folders are all present in one of the several, for example, mail.watts-2.net files. There is data in the empty icon and also the msf file.

Can one change IMAP Mozbackup from .pcv to .zip?

I would greatly appreciate advice as to how to convert the Mozbackup of my mail folders to an intact and working Thunderbird. Thank you.

Hey guys,

I have a question about my IE. There seems to be something wrong with it, when I use it to check my Gmail emails. Whenever I select emails, you know, by checking the check boxes (selecting) to delete or move etc, everytime I click a check box, it takes maybe 15 seconds to check the box. It sort of just hangs, and it does that with all check boxes. It didn't use to do this, I used to be able to delete 10 messages in 5 seconds, now it takes 2 minutes just to select all of 10. I'm not sure what the cause can be. I thought maybe Gmail changed some of their scripts or something which caused this, but I've tried googling, couldn't find anyone with this problem. I know its only in Gmail, because when I use my hotmail account, it doesn't do this. I've also tried other emails and webforms with check boxes, and it doesnt do this. There seems to be something wrong with my IE, because when I login to my Gmail account with my roommate's computer, everything is fine. But then again, he is using a older version of IE. I'm using IE7. I have tried using Netscape 8.0 to check the boxes, and it works fine. So it has got to be my IE!

What recent changes have I done to my computer? Well I've noticed the gmail thing a few days after defragging. I'm not sure if that was the cause, but thats the most recent thing I did and a few days later I noticed the problem in 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.

I guess thunderbird, Gmail and AVG are quite popular. But has anyone ever succeeded in make them work together?

I receive my POP Gmail in Thunderbird and I have AVG installed.

I read this, but that didn't really help me.

Congratulations and many thanks for a sollution!

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.

Are you using POP3 or IMAP to get your mail?

I currently use virginmedia as my service provider and used Thunderbird for my e-mails. However, Virgin have recently upgraded their service and it has resulted in many of my mails, which I can see in my virginmedia mail in-box, not appearing in my Thunderbird in-box. Virgin want £60 to sort this out so I want to switch to gmail instead, but hopefully transferring my Thunderbird address book, previous in-box mails and sent box mails.
Is this all possible if not can anyone tell me how to install Thunderbird on gmail please?
Useless with IT.

Answer:How can I use Thunderbird with gmail

Hi
I use Thunderbird and have gmail accounts. Yes, they work together without issue as far as my experiences go.
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.

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..

I have Windows XP Pro, SP2.

I use Thunderbird as an email client. When you look in the "Drafts" folder it's empty but when you go to:

C:\Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\lgdt4k2y.default\Mail\Local Folders,

you find in "Local Folders" a file called "Drafts". It's huge

In "Local Folders" are files with names of all the folders that are default and that you've created. So I assume this is where all your messages are stored. I don't have any idea why "Drafts" is so big. Can somebody please tell me about this file?

Thanks,

Why not go into an email account, accumulate trash and then you will realize you have forgotten to write "empty trash"? This clearly is a software defect.

I am having trouble with my Arial font coming through in bold. I have Googled this problem and tried all three fixes one for running Firefox in compatibility mode, one for turning off hardware acceleration neither of those worked. But the last one that I found suggested that I reinstall my Arial font due to it maybe being corrupted somehow. I did this and restarted Firefox and yes it was back to normal. However the fix does not last past a reboot (hard or normal (aka soft)), or hibernating, or after waking up from a nap (sleep). I can however reinstall the font that I got and fix the problem again but I want it to last. Does anyone know what may be causing this. All I can think of is running the Arial32.exe as administrator, it's the only thing that I haven't tried... yet.

I also haven't tried using a *.ttf type font installer but if I do that what should (if I have to) name/rename the font file in order for it to overwrite the original default Arial font for Windows.

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

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?

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.

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 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!

Okay, I'm ready to make the switch, but I have a couple questions. First, I'm an old school Hotmail/OE user, but not a paying member. I was going to just pay for Hotmail and get HotPopper, but I'm giving MS the boot as a whole for e-mail.

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

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

The process seemed simple enough, but importing downloaded mbox file only gave empty subdirectories in the Local folder and no email records and no email content and no account-like set of directories shown.  No error messages.  I cannot imagine having done anything wrong.
 
I followed advice found in a couple of videos from youtube as well as some other online articles which I did not keep track of.  The youtube video which I did follow was     and also 
 
Thunderbird version 45, but from Portable Apps, and the Import Export Tool extension was downloaded and installed just last night.

I've used and known Mozilla Thunderbird for some time now.  Where was this mbox imported from?  I'd like to learn alongside of you.

Hello: (New to this or any forum for that matter)
 
Trying to get a cursor in this text box took 5 seconds. Hitting refresh in Gmail or any buttons within gmail or on-line apps takes the same amount of time. Just days ago all was fine - I downloaded some code (w/o properly using common sense - logic analysis code - technical - usually OK) and since that occurred having "response to mouse action" problems (just button clicks and text entry getting a cursor). Have also lost scroll capability in one application - not sure its related but suspicious. Scroll works fine in other apps like Visio. 
 
Have run antivirus software (AVG & Bit defender and Microsoft Security Essentials has been ON all the time). Was thinking of running "combo box" repair utility from this site - but thought best to get advice first and that was also what was recommended.
 
Suggestions? Thnx in advance for your help.
 
Mod Edit:  Do NOT run ComboFix without proper instruction by MRL personnel - Hamluis.

Answer:Buttons, text boxes slow to respond (Gmail / Chrome including this web site)

Seems to be OK now.
 
Removed Chrome - re-installed - worried I would lose my mail - did not  -->> No change
 
Read some more - came across a forum discussing changing windows performance - played with  that no difference although one person states it resolved this issue.
 
Came across this web site:http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/179159-troubleshoot-application-conflicts-performing-clean-startup.html.
 
Played with MSCONFIG as suggested - however it locked up my machine -on reboot (windows was busy trying to stop apps during log off) - waited 1/2 Hour - removed the battery - rebooted came up with all the start-up items disabled, (which I believe I had disabled as suggested).
 
Opened chrome the problem was GONE. I was about to cut disabling the start apps in half to narrow down on the problem - but instead turned them all back to Normal - using Normal.
 
Returned Windows to Normal state using MSCONFIG - rebooted. and Voila (GOT LUCKY) - chrome and all other boxes including this one work 100% as before.
 
So what changed - beats me? But I am thrilled that my machine is back. I am running chrome Beta version now as suggested by one forum (problem remained it was the MSCONFIG selective - no start-up rtns / reboot / back to normal approach that seemed to have resolved the issue)  
 
We'll see for how long this will stay the way it is now - if it comes back - I'll be back.
 
Anyway Thnx for letting me spell th... Read more

Hello,Prior to closing my GMail account, I would like to be able to save every email in the account to an offline archive that will be stored on a hard drive or DVD. I would also like to be able to open this archive in future with an e-mail client, preferably Thunderbird.Despite thinking this would be straightforward, I've only managed to confuse myself by reading more. Help please!

Answer:GMail backup & restore - Thunderbird solution?

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/). It can stream all of your mail (each email in .eml format) from your gmail inbox to your local PC, from there you can burn it. www.standby-it.com

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.

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 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.
