I prefer my most recent emails at the top of the list. Unfortunately Thunderbird (and many other mail clients) do this different.
So how do I change the default sort order?
Change the advanced options!
If you want to sort all mail by Date, Descending (newest at top), change the preferences in the config editor to:
mailnews.default_sort_order: default integer 2
mailnews.default_sort_type: default integer 18
So, what does that 2 stand for? And why 18?

Client with a question:
Windows file explorer,
on document do a right-click,
select Send to – Mail recipient
…. and this opens Windows Live Mail instead of the default Outlook.

You would suspect Windows-Settings-Apps-Default Apps to be set incorrectly, but this was not the case.
How can I keep sent messages from appearing twice in the ” sent ” folder. I am using outlook.com and hotmail.com e-mail addresses with IMAP.
Each time I send a message with Thunderbird the sent message is put in the “sent” folder two times.
What setting needs to be changed to in order to have only one copy of the message put in the “sent” folder?
Outlook/Hotmail and gmail automatically put copies of sent mail in the imap sent folder. If you have settings to also keep a copy then two are being put in the sent folder.
right click on imap mail account in Folder Pane
select 'Copies & Folders'
in 'When sending messages, automatically:'
uncheck : 'Place a copy in:'

Have a nice day!

I am not the only person with this problem:
Something calendar entries in Lightning register as status Tentative and it shows in a different transparent shade of the calendar color. I can manually change the status to confirmed directly in lightning however that is a pain. Plus, it sounds crazy but having these entries a different shade/color drives me nuts.
Now see: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=2318957 for a way to deal with this… except of course, it is not the complete solution and only works after a slight modification. So what to do:

The Internet is an increasingly complex place, not just in terms of services but also from a technical standpoint, especially with the advent of mobile devices over the past few years.
Everything that happens on the web, from browsing, streaming and messaging to file sharing, downloads and, more recently, backups, is based on protocols that have long started to show their age.
Efforts from Internet giants like Google and Microsoft are aimed at improving the situation, but given the slow rate of standardization and adoption of new protocols (or even extensions to existing protocols), it looks like the process will take a long time.
Email is one of the oldest Internet-based conveniences, just like most of the protocols used to make it all happen: SMTP, POP3 and IMAP. Today we’ll deal with IMAP, which is currently at version 4 revision 1, as standardized by the 12-year-old RFC 3501. Continue reading Thunderbird deleted mails stay on mailserver
Zoals u wellicht gemerkt heeft zijn de regels voor het versturen van email naar Gmail en Hotmail aangescherpt. De voornaamste reden voor het verscherpen van deze regels is om de hoeveelheid spam te reduceren bij de genoemde providers.

ABOUT SENDING EMAIL
The IMAP mail protocol is preferred over POP mail nowadays. IMAP is a more recent protocol. When using IMAP, the contents or your email boxes will be synchronized and are therefore the same on all your devices and on your provider’s mail server. So if you delete a message, it is really gone everywhere.
Help me! I can’t send emails anymore! Tip for the outgoing mail server settings on mobile devices. Continue reading Mailserver Settings NL
