Re: Using Thunderbird filters

Gerardo Corripio
 

From what I gather, depends on with which EMail provider you set up Thunderbird with: GMail for instance, automatically set it up as iMap.

Hi, Gene,

 

Here are the steps I took to create the rules. I'll use the music list I'm on as an example.

 

1. I went to tools with alt T and hit f for message filters.

2. I tabbed to the new button and hit the space bar on it.

3. I typed the name for my rule. It's called audioourplace. That's the music list I'm on.

4. I unchecked the box that says "manually check for new messages" or something like that.

5. Next, I tabbed to the box that says "match all of the following" and then tabbed to the combo box and chose the "to" field.

6. I tabbed to the box for "contains". Then I tabbed to an edit box and typed audioourplace@....

7. I tabbed to where you choose a folder. I chose the folder for the music list and hit enter on it.

8. I tabbed to the ok button and hit the space bar on it.

9. When I was taken back to the screen where you'd create a new rule, I tabbed to the run now button and hit enter on it. The filter did work for awhile but then I got new messages from that list in my inbox so I don't know where the problem could be.

 

I hope these steps explain better what I was trying to do.

Then the question is, what is wrong with the rules that don't work?  Are you sure all the lists have what you tell the rule to look for where you tell it to look?  Are you sure the spelling is exactly correct for every item you are using?  I'm not sure what else might account for some of the rules not working. 

 

It might be that if you wrote out every step for a rule that doesn't work, that someone will be able to find the error.  That is tedious but it may work.  It might be much faster and more likely to find the error to work with someone.

Hi, Dan,

 

I'm expecting it to work with new messages coming in. Some of them still came to the inbox.

Hi,

 

Just a thought here.

 

Are you trying it with emails that are coming in after you setup the filter or are you expecting it to work on emails you already have? 

 

The old Windows Mail used to only work on new emails unless you did some very specific manual things to get it to work on already received emails.

 

Perhaps this is part of the issue.

Hi, Gene,

 

Here are the steps I took to create the rules. I'll use the music list I'm on as an example.

 

1. I went to tools with alt T and hit f for message filters.

2. I tabbed to the new button and hit the space bar on it.

3. I typed the name for my rule. It's called audioourplace. That's the music list I'm on.

4. I unchecked the box that says "manually check for new messages" or something like that.

5. Next, I tabbed to the box that says "match all of the following" and then tabbed to the combo box and chose the "to" field.

6. I tabbed to the box for "contains". Then I tabbed to an edit box and typed audioourplace@....

7. I tabbed to where you choose a folder. I chose the folder for the music list and hit enter on it.

8. I tabbed to the ok button and hit the space bar on it.

9. When I was taken back to the screen where you'd create a new rule, I tabbed to the run now button and hit enter on it. The filter did work for awhile but then I got new messages from that list in my inbox so I don't know where the problem could be.

 

I hope these steps explain better what I was trying to do.

It might be that if you wrote out every step for a rule that doesn't work, that someone will be able to find the error.  That is tedious but it may work.  It might be much faster and more likely to find the error to work with someone.

5. To make a folder, just pick folder from the new menu in the file menu, do that before you do a filter if you want to move stuff, because the folder has to exist for you to pick it. If you want the folder in the main account, i.e. another folder like inbox, before you make the folder, highlight your account name with the arrows. If you want everything under your inbox, so you have to hit right arrow to expand folders, highlight your inbox. The difference is that if you highlight the account, you can down arrow, so you'll get inbox, your folder, sent, trash, whatever. If you do it highlighting the inbox, inbox usually starts collapsed and you have to hit right arrow to expand it, then you hit down arrow to get to those folders, you'll go through whatever you made, then you'll get back to sent, trash, whatever.

The original rule worked when you ran it manually.  Change the rule to what it was originally and see if it works.  Leave the check box as it is now.

Re: Using Thunderbird filters

Gene
 

This experience and advice may help you with other problems.  Never assume what a setting does if you don't understand it and never assume you should change it if you don't.  Also, if you change a setting from the default, you are going to be using a setting that is not what the designers consider either optimal or if it isn't a question of an optimal setting, you will be using a setting the designers consider one that will be used by fewer people than the default, quite possibly by much fewer people. 
 
Either look up a setting if you want to know if you should change it or want to know what it does, or if you think you can infer what the setting does, then change it if you wish but by changing this setting without understanding it and to a less, probably much less used option than the default, you gave yourself a lot of problems in this case. I'm confident that changing the setting will solve the problem since the rule performed properly when you manually ran it.  I don't look up every setting I don't understand.  There are times when I assume a setting is probably set as I want it and if its not a setting I'm interested in, I leave it.  If you change a setting you don't understand and you are reporting a problem, always state that you have changed whatever you changed and to what you changed it.  And if you change a setting you don't understand and changing it back won't be expected to cause harm, such as a loss of data, then try changing it back.

Also, make sure you uncheck the filter by manually so that it will run automatically into your corresponding filtered of your choice.

5. To make a folder, just pick folder from the new menu in the file menu, do that before you do a filter if you want to move stuff, because the folder has to exist for you to pick it. If you want the folder in the main account, i.e. another folder like inbox, before you make the folder, highlight your account name with the arrows.

Hi,Anthony,


I do have a pop account with my outlook 2013 so maybe I'll use that one. Some rules do work inthunderbird but sometimes they don't.

I'm on as an example.

1. I went to tools with alt T and hit f for message filters.

2. I tabbed to the new button and hit the space bar on it.

3. I typed the name for my rule. It's called audioourplace. That's the

4. I unchecked the box that says "manually check for new messages" or
something like that.

5. Next, I tabbed to the box that says "match all of the following"
and then tabbed to the combo box and chose the "to" field.

6. I tabbed to the box for "contains". Then I tabbed to an edit box
and typed audioourplace@googlegroups.com
<mailto:audioourplace@googlegroups.com>.

7. I tabbed to where you choose a folder. I chose the folder for the
music list and hit enter on it.

8. I tabbed to the ok button and hit the space bar on it.

9. When I was taken back to the screen where you'd create a new rule,
I tabbed to the run now button and hit enter on it. The filter did
work for awhile but then I got new messages from that list in my inbox
so I don't know where the problem could be.

I hope these steps explain better what I was trying to do.

Then the question is, what is wrong with the rules that don't work?
Are you sure all the lists have what you tell the rule to look for
where you tell it to look? Are you sure the spelling is exactly
correct for every item you are using? I'm not sure what else might
account for some of the rules not working.

It might be that if you wrote out every step for a rule that doesn't
work, that someone will be able to find the error. That is tedious
but it may work. It might be much faster and more likely to find the
error to work with someone.

It sounds as though you generally did things correctly but you probably shouldn't have unchecked the automatically check for new mail check box.  Check it and see what happens.  If you have set things up correctly as far as you know and something doesn't work, try the only thing that might make a difference assuming everything else has been done correctly.  What is it?  It's automatically check for mail.  Have you seen an explanation for what this setting does?  Most likely, it tells the rule to be applied every time you check for new mail.  Unchecking it probably only causes the rule to be run when you manually tell it to run.

How do you create filters in thunderbird or do you just delete them after reading or replying to them? Outlook is ok but It's a bit clunky.

Probably because filters only work for Pop3 and not iMap?

Hi, Gene,

 

Here are the steps I took to create the rules. I'll use the music list I'm on as an example.

 

1. I went to tools with alt T and hit f for message filters.

2. I tabbed to the new button and hit the space bar on it.

3. I typed the name for my rule. It's called audioourplace. That's the music list I'm on.

4. I unchecked the box that says "manually check for new messages" or something like that.

5. Next, I tabbed to the box that says "match all of the following" and then tabbed to the combo box and chose the "to" field.

6. I tabbed to the box for "contains". Then I tabbed to an edit box and typed audioourplace@....

7. I tabbed to where you choose a folder. I chose the folder for the music list and hit enter on it.

8. I tabbed to the ok button and hit the space bar on it.

9. When I was taken back to the screen where you'd create a new rule, I tabbed to the run now button and hit enter on it. The filter did work for awhile but then I got new messages from that list in my inbox so I don't know where the problem could be.

 

I hope these steps explain better what I was trying to do.

Then the question is, what is wrong with the rules that don't work?  Are you sure all the lists have what you tell the rule to look for where you tell it to look?  Are you sure the spelling is exactly correct for every item you are using?  I'm not sure what else might account for some of the rules not working. 

 

It might be that if you wrote out every step for a rule that doesn't work, that someone will be able to find the error.  That is tedious but it may work.  It might be much faster and more likely to find the error to work with someone.

Turn off updates in the program. Programs usually allow you to turn off
updates in the program. Do you know how to look through options? In the
advanced settings, there is a section for turning off updates. If you
need

to know how to find the update section, ask here.

I notice in programs and features there is a entry for Mozilla update
service. If I remove this program does it stop automatic updates of
Firefox and Thunderbird?

Re: Firefox auto update

 

hello.
its better that in the time of installation, choose custom settings
and uncheck maintenance service.
if did not, you can disable auto update in tools options advance and update.
hope that help, God bless you.

Reading all of this stuff about Firefox 75, I may actually chance it when it

has been out for a while, and then regress all the way back to 52 if it
proves to be an issue later on. The reason for 52 is that this seems to be
the one chosen to remain getting security updates, even though 55 is the
last bugless versio, which I'm using now. as long as I can get the 32 bit
versions and avoid the 64 bit ones I think this should work.
The add ons and stuff should be ok as should the bookmarks etc.
