It looks like the Teams meeting join information is contained within the DESCRIPTION field of a vCalendar file sent by Outlook.
Apparently, Thunderbird is unable to display content from embedded vCalendar content. One solution would to be installed an extension to display the vCalendar content. Some extensions that claim this functionality can be found on ...
This was fixed by changing the support version of the TLS protocol.
The default has changed to TLS version 3.
In Linux I go to:
Scroll all the way to the bottom
Config Editor button
I accept the risk
search for security.tls.version.min
change default to what ever your server supports
I used the following to check what the server ...
Check your sent copy. Is it cut off? If not, try sending the message to iphone. If not cut off, the problem is probably the recipient using outlook - either a setting or a version I'm still investigating that. A suggested workaround is to select your whole message (Ctrl_A) before clicking reply or forward in TB.
The setting you use is outdated and was replaced in Thunderbird 5 by a new option:
Thunderbird used to support setting
mail.check_all_imap_folders_for_new to true to make it check every
remote folder for new mail. The downside was there is no way to
exclude a specific folder (such as a junk mail folder). However, that
setting was replaced in version 5.0 ...
This is not a bug but by design.
The logic is to download all headers, so all emails will be visible.
This way, when you attempt to read an older email, then TB can download the
body and attachments for you.
The logic on which is based this behavior is extremely convoluted, and as usual
in such over-complex cases, not very user-friendly and not at all common-...
This sort-of works for Outlook 2016 [...]
Not sure if answering just to thank someone is acceptable.
I'll go for it anyway. This approach works like a charm also in Outlook 365 (v.2010 Build 13328.20292 as of Nov. 2020).
Thank you for saving lots of ass here.
Edit: the command line trick doesn't even seem to be needed anymore. Outlook 365 v.2010 opens *.eml ...
Proof of Concept: userChromeJS addon + custom user script
To answer my own question: I managed to pull of this hack which deselects the current selection before the user continues typing.
If someone knows how to turn this into a real Thunderbird MailExtension, feel free to update this answer or start your own!
Install the experimental Thunderbird-...
The following describes how to still turn off missed reminders, after it disappeared from the options-menue:
tested with: thunderbird 68.6.0 (64-bit) on GNU Linux Debian 10

Before doing anything else, I rather strongly recommend making a backup of all
your emails in Thunderbird.
Make sure Thunderbird is closed.
Then do for example as follows from a cmd.exe command line:
chDir /D C:\Users\%UserName%\
"%ProgramFiles%\7-Zip\7z.exe" a Thunderbird.zip AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\
Your backup will now be the zip file C:\...
As of 2020 this does not appear to be possible. There are several feature requests in Bugzilla concerning this topic:
#1104677: Selecting / Deselecting calendars also selects/deselects tasks (Lightning Add-On)
#1598592: tasks and calendar view should have different calendar listings and selected calendar (probably a duplicate of 1104677)
#1676118: Allow ...
When connected to an IMAP mail server, Thunderbird uses the IDLE command to subscribe to change notifications. Using it will cause the server to start sending notifications every time the current folder's contents change in any way.
Although IMAP is primarily request-response, it does also allow the server to produce various "untagged" messages at ...
IMAP synchronization is always a request-response meganism, exchange however is not.
Exchange can be a request-response meganism, but it can also be a "notify me upon arrival" aka push meganism.
Since gmail uses exchange email can be synched the moment something changes if setup correctly.
Once thunderbird knows the serverside has changed, it ...
Another option is to download the original message from Gmail, open it in Thunderbird, and then copy the message within Thunderbird back in to the original folder.
Go to the menu for the message in Gmail (three dots in the top right) and select "show original"
Select "download original"
Select "Open with Thunderbird"
Go to Options > General > Config Editor
