ICloud :: Thunderbird Won't Work With It

Apr 13, 2012

Thunderbird wont work with icloud. I think it's a plot.... Seriously I do think that Apple is trying to force users to use their email programmes only. There seems to be no way on the new Thunderbird to get back into icloud.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Get Mail Through Mozilla Thunderbird After Going On ICloud

Apr 4, 2012

I just went to Lion and the cloud and am no longer able to get my mail from my .mac address through Thunderbird. Can I fix this or am I stuck with Mail? I don't care about reading mail on my iPhone. The move to Lion and iCloud has done nothing but make life more difficult for me.

Applications :: Import Mail Account Settings From Thunderbird And / Or Outlook Express Into Mail?

Jan 31, 2010

Is there away to import mail account settings from Thunderbird and/or Outlook Express into Mail? [that is, to help any one searching later on as Mail is too common a word to search for]. I've imported all my messages correctly but don't know how or if it's possible to import my account settings. Also: I'm in the process of migrating all my e-mails / mail accounts / settings and mail rules from Outlook Express to Mail []. I have successfully got all my e-mails across. I have also managed to convert all the e-mail addresses in the 50+ mail rules, as stored in the Windows registry, from hex into text.

Some of my rules have tens of e-mail addresses which if I had to add in each address separately would be a nightmare. Is there away of block adding in e-mail addresses to Mail? Also is it possible to manually edit the mail rules preference file(s) and insert the e-mail addresses into that? I'm aware I have to manually recreate the rules themselves but that's not so difficult. It's the adding back in of all the e-mail addresses that might be, given the large number that exist.

OS X :: Migrating To Mail From Thunderbird?

Oct 28, 2007

I've recently installed leopard on my macbook and I'd like to migrate from thunderbird to mail so that my contacts and all can be synced from one application to another. That's the beauty of mac osx afterall.

Alright, So I launched mail, clicked import from thunderbird and everything seemed to be running smoothly and when all my mails finished importing, I did a quick check on the mails and. The mails weren't properly sorted into the different folders and I had tons of mail missing! Does anyone here have any experience with migrating from thunderbird to mail and faced these problems during their migration? If I did it manually, would it be better? Kindly advise.

Secondly, I used to run filters on my mail such that my mail will get sorted out into different folders. It's really handy because it keeps my mails organised and stuff. How does mail do this? Is it the smart mailbox that I see?

Applications :: OS X Mail And Mozilla Thunderbird

Jan 26, 2009

I've had a lot of problems in the past with the generic OS X Mail app. I've been unable to send, or receive, or both. I've tried just about every combination of ports, settings, etc., suggested to me on the Apple Discussions site. But all to no avail. So, I've finally ditched OS X Mail and installed Mozilla's Thunderbird. Now, using identical settings to those tried in OS X Mail, I can send, receive, and do just about anything I like. Except. Thunderbird will not import my Address Book! My Address Book is the standard Mac OS X Address Book. I have tried saving v-cards, saving the whole book, etc, but when I try to import to Thunderbird, I just get a bunch of blank v-cards or nothing at all. Step by step guide please. I'm sure this must be both possible and easy. I must just be missing some single vital step.

btw sent & messages in other folders are correctly imported.

OS X Mavericks :: How Does ICloud For Mail Work

Sep 7, 2014

I use IMAP accounts and not exactly sure why I should use iCloud for Mail.  I don't need my messages sync'd since IMAP already handles that.  Will iCloud Mail disregard my messages in this case? 

I have two Macs and multiple iOS devices.  I've been trying to understand the benefits of using Mail in iCloud.  It seems it will push rules, smart mailboxes and folders to all your devices.  That would be a nice benefit. I'm just concerned what it will do to my messages. I have local folders that are listed "ON MY MAC" on my Macbook Pro.  Will those get pushed to my iMac and vice versa?

Software :: Setting IPhoto Default Mail App To Thunderbird?

Sep 7, 2008

Mac OS X Leopard
iPhoto 6
Thunderbird (latest)
iMac 24" 2.16 GHz Core2 Duo

Is there a work-around so that in iPhoto, when you highlight a selection of photos and then hit Mail to email them, you can actually select Thunderbird? Right now, even though Thunderbird is my default mail app, as set in Mail, Thunderbird still isn't an option in iPhoto. There are other ways to email those photos, obviously, but iPhoto is so much easier.

Applications :: Tweaking Settings In Thunderbird Mail Client

Mar 4, 2009

I use Thunderbird as my preferred mail client. However, one thing I don't like is how when I am in the inbox, anytime I click on a message it always opens beneath. This is not that big of a deal, but what bugs me is that the message is then counted as a "read message." Therefore, like I'm sure many of you do as well, I constantly have to secondary click --- drag cursor down to "mark" --- then click "as read".

I have to do this in order to mark it as "unread" so I remember to reply to it later. If I single click (or tap) the cursor over and email in my inbox, it will either not open up beneath and not be marked as read, or still be opened up beneath (in the inbox) but not be marked as read? The second option would be preferred, but either would be better than the current default setting I have.

Software :: Why Thunderbird 3 Marks Deleted Mail As Read

Dec 15, 2009

I have noticed that Thunderbird 3 marks any mail that is deleted as having been read whether it has been or not. Why? What logical reason could there possibly be for such a setup? How does one prevent that from happening? Is there any setting that can be added to about: config to prevent that?

OS X Mavericks :: Attaching Files Crashes Mac Mail And Thunderbird?

Jun 4, 2014

Just upgraded from Mountain Lion to Mavericks 10.9.3 on a 2012 Mac Mini 4 core.  When attempting to add an attachment to an email, both Mac Mail and Thunderbird start with the spinning beachball and never recover.  Force Quit is the only option.  Even after that, the Finder has strange screen artifacts left over from Mail (attach file dialog box) and Finder must be relaunched as well. 

Dragging and dropping files works okay with Mac Mail.  This option does not exist when using Thunderbird, so no workaround available for that App.  Also, Mac Mail only gets stuck when attempting to attach files on the desktop.  Files from other locations attach OK. 

Already tried Repair Permissions, Repair Disk, Reinstalled Mavericks with no change.  For now, I have gone back to Mountain Lion since this is a deal breaker, even though everything else seems to work ok (except for the occasional brief spinning beach ball).

ICloud :: Mail On Work Computer While Not Saving Messages Locally

Jun 1, 2012

I set up my icloud account at work using Mail because I was tired of writing personal messages from my iPhone. Initially I opted to not save any messages locally, since I prefer keeping my personal correspondence in the cloud and on my private devices. Unfortunately if I choose that option, then no messages are displayed in the inbox or sent folders.I am accustomed to the IMAP way of things, where Mail displays the server contents when online and in offline mode, no messages are displayed because they aren't saved locally.Is this possible with iCloud?

ICloud :: Mail Folders (Sent Mail And Drafts) Not Syncing Between It And

Jun 13, 2012

I am running Lion (latest ver) on my iMac (2011, i7), and have icloud set up to sync mail (and other stuff) with my iPhone 4. My iCloud account Sent Mail and Drafts are being syncronized between the cloud the iPhone, but not the iMac. So for example, I see 2 items in my Drafts folder when I log into, and I see them in the drafts folder on iPhone mail, but they do not appear in the drafts folder for my iCloud account on on the iMac. Also, I don't see emails I sent from on my Mac's mail. I have iCloud enabled on the mac, and mail syncing is specifically turned on.
