My son builds machines for me, and always includes his first choice of
whatever goes on 'em. Swears that I'll love Win 7. We'll see.
I'm using Thunderbird on an XP desk top and a Vista laptop.
No problems so far.
What are you having trouble with on the Vista machine?
The same problem I have with the XP machine -- when I try to forward
something with pictures in it, the pictures turn to little red Xs
which fail to magically become pictures again. If I copy and paste
text from some other application, it wants to put one of those red
fences around it. You can delete all the text, but the box won't go
Use the "reply" option, and merely remove the name of the original
sender and replace with your target.
Alas, that made no difference. Today it seems to be in a good humor
and is leaving the pictures in *some* posts instead of replacing them
with little red Xs, but the multiple red fences are still around
everything. There is no consistency -- the posts I've had the red X
problem with the most are from someone who has comcast and I thought
for a while that it must have something to do with that, but I tested
one of his posts and the pictures showed up, two that they didn't.
Now that's weird.
In addition, on the Vista machine, it ignores my choice to leave the
mail on the server, and also downloads posts of any size although I
have set a limit. Just something else for it to ignore.
Do you have the latest version of T bird ?
It performs flawlessly here.
Does as it's told - every time.
I have 126.96.36.199 on both of them. I don't know if that's the latest or
not, but I can't imagine that I outlasted an onslaught of "update now"
I'm running 3.0.1. You can get it here:
.Have you taken your issues to the Mozilla community ?
They're able to help with just about any issue.
Since it's open source, changes / corrections are easily made.
Not recently, but I did spend some time on it a while back and found
that many other people were experiencing the same problem but no one
had a solution.
Whether or not I end up using Tbird on the new computer, I'll have to
install it because I don't think there's a good way to transfer the
address book anywhere else. During that brief period the other day
when I thought I would able to use Windows Mail, I tried the
suggestions I found online for converting it to Windows Contacts.
Supposedly, if you convert it using the .csv choice, it would work. I
tried it multiple times with every folder in my address book. On one
try, it did actually result in the folder being converted, but it left
out all the e-mail addresses. Only that one attempt resulted in
anything other than one file with the .csv extension. I suppose that
could be imported into Excel or QuattroPro but that doesn't seem to be
much of an improvement.
