backing up thunderbird


Annette Moore
 

ron, does this save all of your configuration, as well as your messages? I care more about the configuration than about actually keeping any of my messages because it took about an hour for me to get everything I wanted/needed configured to the way I needed it sinceI have three email accounts. I have the instructions saved that Richard Wels gave me, but shoot, if I could back all that up and not have to go through that again with any clean install of thunderbird on a future new computer, that would be great!

Hi Group,


This probably varies from mail program to mail program, but when using Thunderbird, you can back up almost everything by doing the following.


1.  Close Thunderbird.

2.  From the run dialogue, type %appdata% and press enter.

3.  You are in the roaming folder.  This folder contains all the application data, settings, address book and e-mails from Thunderbird.

4.  navigate to the folder named Thunderbird and when highlighted, press control + C to copy that folder.

5.  Then paste this folder onto a thumb drive, external hard drive or some similar device and you have everything backed up.

6.  Now if for some reason, you need a fresh install of Thunderbird or if you get a new computer and use Thunderbird, you can simply install Thunderbird and navigate to the Roaming folder as described in steps 1 through 3 above and paste the contents of the Thunderbird folder that you have copied into the Roaming folder.


I do this every few days to keep the mail and settings of Thunderbird backed up.

\See, it serves no purpose.

There are people who use pop3, and it works just fine for them.  There are definitely use cases where pop3 is a better fit than imap, and there are use cases where imap is clearly the better alternative.  Wishing one or the other would go away is just ignorance talking.

If you don't wish to use it, then don't, but that doesn't mean that others who are fully aware of what they're getting, and do wish to use it shouldn't do so.  I for one much prefer pop3, for several reasons, including disk usage, security, issues, ease of backup, and others.

When folks talk about folks loosing years worth of emails because they used pop3, my question is did those folks ever backup their mail? I'm thinking no.  Sure, it's not the easiest thing to move mail from one email client to another, but you're just as likely to loose all your imap messages if your email provider goes bye-bye as well, and nobody here can tell me that's never happened.

It's six of one, and half dozen of the other, use what works for you, and allow others to use what works for them.

Yes you can. I have about 200 thousand messages on gmail's server and it doesn't really complain at me. You can also clean them up using iMap as well. I use iMap and wish that pop 3 would just go away and die. All the email and attachments are backed up in the cloud and no matter what device as stated you are on you can always get your mail. I lost over 3 years worth of messages once so am not going back to pop3.

Mightn't it be easier to use Thunderbird portable and just copy everything to a new location?

It might be. It sounds easier just to copy the folder, but I'm just now becoming more familiar with portable copies of programs. I guess if I'd started out using a portable version of thunderbird it would've been easier, but now I have the installed version, so if I downloaded the portable, I'd still initially have to do all the hard work of reconfiguring everything, then make a copy of it. or would I?

it is a program for backing up everything in any Mozilla program and then you can restore it say on a clean install and have all your stuff like address books and so on in mail. and bookmarks. in your firefox.

There are people who use pop3, and it works just fine for them. There are definitely use cases where pop3 is a better fit than imap, and there are use cases where imap is clearly the better alternative.  Wishing one or the other would go away is just ignorance talking.

If you don't wish to use it, then don't, but that doesn't mean that others who are fully aware of what they're getting, and do wish to use it shouldn't do so.  I for one much prefer pop3, for several reasons, including disk usage, security, issues, ease of backup, and others.

When folks talk about folks loosing years worth of emails because they used pop3, my question is did those folks ever backup their mail? I'm thinking no.  Sure, it's not the easiest thing to move mail from one email client to another, but you're just as likely to loose all your imap messages if your email provider goes bye-bye as well, and nobody here can tell me that's never happened.

It's six of one, and half dozen of the other, use what works for you, and allow others to use what works for them.

Yes you can. I have about 200 thousand messages on gmail's server and it doesn't really complain at me. You can also clean them up using iMap as well. I use iMap and wish that pop 3 would just go away and die. All the email and attachments are backed up in the cloud and no matter what device as stated you are on you can always get your mail. I lost over 3 years worth of messages once so am not going back to pop3.

I use Becky! mail, it does and I can have all my configurations, filters,
folders structure, automatically backed up every night using open drive.
I had to restore, re-claiming all 29000 or messages without loss of a
thing, and not wasting space on my email provider who limits on disc
storage if I don't claim the mail. :)

Hi Annette,


As far as I can tell, everything is saved. I just updated a day ago and when I opened the back up version of Thunderbird on my back up system, the address book, the folder structure (I have 17 sub folders under Inbox) the layout and even the order of message selection was saved.

Hey list! Arlene here; I'm writing to you on this new win ten laptop.
My win 7 box bit the dust! I lost all sound. A sighted person can

One question I want to ask. Can I put Gmail onto Thunderbird? If so,
How can I do it? Thanks! Have a good night!

mail? I'm thinking no. Sure, it's not the easiest thing to move
mail from one email client to another, but you're just as likely to
loose all your imap messages if your email provider goes bye-bye as
well, and nobody here can tell me that's never happened.

It's six of one, and half dozen of the other, use what works for
you, and allow others to use what works for them.

Yes you can. I have about 200 thousand messages on gmail's server
and it doesn't really complain at me. You can also clean them up
using iMap as well. I use iMap and wish that pop 3 would just go
away and die. All the email and attachments are backed up in the
cloud and no matter what device as stated you are on you can
always get your mail. I lost over 3 years worth of messages once
so am not going back to pop3.

Hi Arlene,


You can use GMail with pop or imap.  First you must go onto the GMail site, log in and under settings, change your delivery method from web to either pop3 or imap.


Then you create a GMail account in Thunderbird using the following settings for ports and security.

for smpt the port is 465

Connection Security: ssl/tls

Authentication password: normal password

User name is full e-mail address as in joe.smith@gmail.com

incoming port for pop or imat 995

Hi Group,


This probably varies from mail program to mail program, but when
using Thunderbird, you can back up almost everything by doing the
following.


1. Close Thunderbird.

2. From the run dialogue, type %appdata% and press enter.

3. You are in the roaming folder. This folder contains all the
application data, settings, address book and e-mails from Thunderbird.

4. navigate to the folder named Thunderbird and when highlighted,
press control + C to copy that folder.

5. Then paste this folder onto a thumb drive, external hard drive or
some similar device and you have everything backed up.

6. Now if for some reason, you need a fresh install of Thunderbird
or if you get a new computer and use Thunderbird, you can simply
install Thunderbird and navigate to the Roaming folder as described
in steps 1 through 3 above and paste the contents of the Thunderbird
folder that you have copied into the Roaming folder.


I do this every few days to keep the mail and settings of Thunderbird
backed up.

There are definitely use cases where pop3 is a better fit than

If you don't wish to use it, then don't, but that doesn't mean that
others who are fully aware of what they're getting, and do wish to

reasons, including disk usage, security, issues, ease of backup,

In addition you need to make sure on accounts.google.com that in security settings you allow third party programs.

Google says this is dangerous but we all know they just want you to use chrome to use email and  their own software, once thats all okk you will probably start the usual signin and will be asked to autnorise thunderbird to be a trusted app then it will work.

A reminder if you use 2step authentication you will have to set a app password for thunderbird but you probably know that allready its not like they don't tell you a million times.

I would suggest getting a cheap perhaps ten or fifteen U.S. dollar sound card and seeing if you can use the old computer with it.  its good to have another computer available and I always have at least two functioning computers available.  I recall you lost sound but that may mean your built-in sound card is no longer working.  All it may need is a USB sound card to get audio back.

Hi Group,


This probably varies from mail program to mail program, but when using Thunderbird, you can back up almost everything by doing the following.


1.  Close Thunderbird.

2.  From the run dialogue, type %appdata% and press enter.

3.  You are in the roaming folder.  This folder contains all the application data, settings, address book and e-mails from Thunderbird.

4.  navigate to the folder named Thunderbird and when highlighted, press control + C to copy that folder.

5.  Then paste this folder onto a thumb drive, external hard drive or some similar device and you have everything backed up.

6.  Now if for some reason, you need a fresh install of Thunderbird or if you get a new computer and use Thunderbird, you can simply install Thunderbird and navigate to the Roaming folder as described in steps 1 through 3 above and paste the contents of the Thunderbird folder that you have copied into the Roaming folder.


I do this every few days to keep the mail and settings of Thunderbird backed up.

\See, it serves no purpose.

There are people who use pop3, and it works just fine for them. There are definitely use cases where pop3 is a better fit than imap, and there are use cases where imap is clearly the better alternative.  Wishing one or the other would go away is just ignorance talking.

If you don't wish to use it, then don't, but that doesn't mean that others who are fully aware of what they're getting, and do wish to use it shouldn't do so.  I for one much prefer pop3, for several reasons, including disk usage, security, issues, ease of backup, and others.

When folks talk about folks loosing years worth of emails because they used pop3, my question is did those folks ever backup their mail? I'm thinking no.  Sure, it's not the easiest thing to move mail from one email client to another, but you're just as likely to loose all your imap messages if your email provider goes bye-bye as well, and nobody here can tell me that's never happened.

It's six of one, and half dozen of the other, use what works for you, and allow others to use what works for them.

Yes you can. I have about 200 thousand messages on gmail's server and it doesn't really complain at me. You can also clean them up using iMap as well. I use iMap and wish that pop 3 would just go away and die. All the email and attachments are backed up in the cloud and no matter what device as stated you are on you can always get your mail. I lost over 3 years worth of messages once so am not going back to pop3.

There's an easier way than this. Get ThunderBird portable from portable apps, and just tell the portable apps client to install itself in your DropBox or one drive folder or whatever cloud service you use. This way, the portable apps client, when ran, will automatically check for TB updates and be on every computer you personally use.


 

how do you restore your mail using the portable?
