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.
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.
It seems like the server has gone down or something in the past few days. My settings originally used in Thunderbird for my iCloud e-mail are no longer valid. Anyone else having the same issue? I am able to receive e-mail but I cannot send. I've tried resetting my password and using various outgoing servers including [URL] and [URL].
I have been having this problem for over two weeks on my iMac 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, running 10.6.6. I am running FF 3.6.12 and Thunderbird 3.1. I mention Thunderbird, because the persistent request to install fonts occurs on both apps, not just FF. Clicking "Do not ask me again," has no effect.
The odd thing is the requests in both apps want to install on the volume "NEON," which is my SuperDuper (bootable) backup drive, and should contain all the fonts that are on my boot drive.
I have tried the tricks suggested for FontBook (move all User Fonts to the Computer Fonts ?), with no change in behavior. With some difficulty, I did install the fonts being asked for on both volumes, with the result that Firefox and Thunderbird began asking to install a new set of completely different fonts, although fewer in number that when the problem began.
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?
Which on do you use and why? I use Thunderbird because it's what I've used on Windows. I just moved over my profile folder with all of my settings and filters. I'm debating on going with Mac mail since it's native to OSX.
I lost all my emails in my inbox and sent mail, but luckily i had them backed up as .pst files. Problem is I need to import the pst. files into Thunderbird on my mac. Does anyone know how to do this? If so can you please explain in detail the steps I need to complete an import. Here is what I have to work with Mac ibook G4, running osx 10.4.11, and Mozilla Thunderbird version 188.8.131.52.
I am switching from Windows to Mac after 27 years. I have a couple of years of e-mail using Thunderbird by Mozzilla. Can someone tell me how to best move those files over to Mac? I am running Paralells in order to have access to Windows applications.
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.
I have a problem importing mail from Thunderbird to Mail.app on Leopard. I transfered all my messages from windows computer to a mac that ran Tiger OS and Thunderbird. Now a few months later I upgraded OS to Leopard and wish to import messages from Thunderbird to Mail.app. But Mail imports only messages that have been once transfered from windows and doesn't import any of the messages that I have received or sent on my mac these last few months.
I'm a bit scared of messing something up with code edits and I'm hoping there's a way to do a clean input. Googling around, it doesn't look like there is? I need to transfer everything from Thunderbird (PC) to Mail (Mac).
I use Thunderbird for my email and Firefox for my browsing. For both Thunderbird and Firefox I have them asking me where to save files that I download. I have also changed in Safari, even though I do not use this, to save downloaded files in a temp directory I created. However, whenever I open an attachment in Thunderbird it saves a copy of this file to my Downloads directory.

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.
I used Thunderbird in Windows, and want to carry over my inbox archive to my new iMac. Can OS X's Mail program import that inbox archive so that my 100+ past email messages are included as Mail's inbox?
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.
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?
I have a Macbook Pro with Lion installed. I have a situation where ThunderBird automaticaly sends all attachments I open to the desktop. Unfortunately, this causes my desktop to get all cluttered up. Each time after opening 5-10 attachments, I have to go and delete all of them off the desktop to maintain order on my desktop.
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).
Does icloud work with Entourage 2008 for Mac for email? Mac says it does but Microsoft says it does not support icloud in Entourage's email program, or in 2011 Office for Mac. I have the same impression for 20 years---Apple and MSFT refuse to communicate on anything impacting their customers and we suffer.
My .mac account became a .me account. Now .me is going away for icloud. I currently use the "Backup" software to make scheduled back ups to my idisk account. Does anyone know if backup will still work in the post-icloud world?
