For exactly the same scenario I'm currently using mailbox.org which offers the total package starting from 2.5€/month: E-mails with easy PGP integration, calendars, contacts, tasks, word processing, and file sharing. It's actually a very nice alternative for something like Dropbox or Google Docs. Windows Phone sync of emails, calendars, contacts and tasks ...

In KDE5 the usual minimize-to-tray plugin works except you can't see icon but notification popup does appear so workaround is to add thunderbird app icon to panel to simulate its notification icon when minimized. The only difference is the app icon is a little bigger than the one which appears after minimizing. This way the behavior is exactly the same, in ...

This answer focusses on the conceptual question: Why has Canonical made this decision? It doesn’t suggest workarounds for the decisions Canonical has made. Those have already been given in another answer. There are generally two ways for a downstream distributor (like Canonical) to deal with upstream releases. Simply pass the new release on to the ...

The main repo won't likely be updated unless it needs to for security fixes. The only reason it's seemed that Canonical always updates to the latest is that Mozilla has released security fixes in newer versions and it was deemed worth any potential trouble they might have with w/ a brand new version to get those fixes. If there are major changes made in ...

You can get version 38 by going to https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/ and downloading version 38. I don’t know why Canonical didn’t update Thunderbird. Maybe you can also use sudo apt-get install thunderbird?

Thanks for all the tips so far. The answer came from the hint that warci provided of asking whether I was using the 32bit version on a 64 bit system. I am running a 64 bit system and it was the 64 bit version I was having trouble with. However just for the hell of it, I installed the 32 bit version on my 64 bit system and lo' and behold it is now working. ...

I prefer the MinimizeToTray revived (MinTrayR) extension, because it only uses the default Ubuntu Messaging Menu, rather than adding a new icon in the tray to Thunderbird, as FireTray does. Thus, you need not fill the tray with icons.

If you can sync all your mails from your mail server, then you can simply configure thunderbird on ubuntu 14.04 and sync it. In case you have mails stored locally on Windows (which are not available on mail server) then you have to copy the local archived folder from Windows and copy it to ubuntu. Thuderbird picks the mails from that. For details ...

Best is to Use IMAP if you insist on POP se the alternative at the bottom. Since you are using the POP protocol in your mail client. Mails are most probably being downloaded to your email client and removed form the server (check your email client settings to verify this) If you were running IMAP already you would only need to to Step NR 3 1) Set up ...

I believe under the folder's Properties you also have to go to the Synchronization tab and uncheck Select this folder for offline use.

If you installed keyconfig, but you can't find the "Send Now" option: 1) Open Thunderbird 2) Start composing a new message (in a new window) 3) In the main Thunderbird window, go to the Tools menu > Keyconfig 4) At the top of the Keyconfig window, there is a dropdown box, with one entry for each open Thunderbird window for example: - Inbox - Write (no ...

I don't think there's an easy way to see both send from and to in a single window. But you can easily sort by sender from your inbox view, just select an email from that person and click on the From header: You can do the same in your "Sent" folder too.

I am using TB 31.7 too. I am using IMAP for my professional and for my private account. In Server Settings "move message to folder XY" is activated and for me it works perfectly. If your Trash folder is on the mailserver: did you subscribe to the corresponding folder? Check this by right clicking on your email account in the tree view on the left of TB. ...
