LOL Thanks for the help guys. I have not had any more luck finding anything other than FreePOPS and it does not look like it will work. Anyone ever used this?

Forwarding HTML messages

Hmm...I've played around with all the HTML sending-receiving settings to no avail.

I've received an HTML message with inline photos and I want to forward it, but when I try I get a plain text equivalent without any photos.

Any idea how to forward HTML messages in TB 1.0.2?

Display Mail User Agent Extension

Ever curious about what email client your senders use? Well, this almost totally unnecessary but fun extension will tell you. ~100 email programs are identified with an icon (and by name in a mouse pop-over) on the right side of the header in Thunderbird.

Surprise your friends, amaze your relatives - "I know what email client you use ... "

Guys,

I am going to be wiping my system and reinstalling XP. Is there a way I can save my Thunderbird setup, for example: current emails, saved emails, contacts, settings with POP usernames and passwords, etc...

i guess what I am looking for is an export function of some kind, or do i just copy a folder somewhere

Thanks

From the Mozilla knowledge base: backing up a TB profile.

Worked perfectly for me.

excellent. thank you

Would I install Thunderbird or firefox first with its default profile and then copy over my backed-up profile
or
copy the profile to the new location and then install thunderbird/firefox?

I think after install you just copy over the old folder. From the link:

Quote:
Copy your backup of the "Mozilla", "Firefox", or "Thunderbird" folder to the exact same location it was when you made the backup. The entire directory structure must be identical for it to work. If you are moving from one OS to another (e.g., Windows 98 to Windows XP), or if your Windows boot drive letter has changed (e.g., from "C:\" to "D:\") or your Windows login/user name is different, see Moving your profile folder.

How to get "Junk" deleted automatically

I am using T'Bird 1.2... Works well. Label Junk as Junk. But it always appears in my inbox. How do I get it to just dump it automatically, if possible. Thanks.

Good grief, 66 and still trying to learn this stuff.

It doesn't appear to be able to delete junk automatically, but in Tools - Junk Mail Controls make sure the "Move incoming messages determined to be junk mail to "Junk" folder on (Local Folders)" is checked.

Below it select "Automatically delete junk messages older than (1) days from this folder".

This is with Thunderbird 1.0.7.

Portable Thunderbird 1.5 RC1

Portable Thunderbird allows you to carry your whole email client and all your contacts with you on an iPod, USB thumbdrive, portable hard drive or any other portable media. You can plug it right into any Windows computer and use it just like you would on your own. It is a repackaged version of the popular Mozilla Thunderbird email client designed with portability in mind, so it has all the same great features of Thunderbird, but there's nothing to install. It is also available with GPG and Enigmail preconfigured for those that encrypt and sign their email....
