Infopackets Reader Bill V. writes: " Dear Dennis, I recently upgraded to Windows 10. Everything worked fine for a few months, but all the sudden my Start Menu stopped working.

How to Fix: Thunderbird: One Inbox, Multiple Accounts

Infopackets Reader Julia S. writes: " Dear Dennis, Thanks for your articles on Thunderbird. I have a question! I have multiple email accounts that I use with Thunderbird; one issue I find is that it's difficult to figure out which inbox has my new ... emails.

Infopackets Reader Bryan M. writes: " Dear Dennis, Thanks for your excellent article on how to disable Thunderbird email attachment reminders ! I have somewhat of a related question. When I leave Thunderbird running in the background and if I'm ... surfing the web or perhaps even writing a document, Thunderbird pops up constantly with a new email notification window in the bottom right of my screen (by the clock), and it stays there for about 5 seconds.

How to Fix: Disable Thunderbird Attachment Reminder

Infopackets Reader Barb S. writes: " Dear Dennis, I just upgraded to Windows 10 and did not like the default email client, so I decided to give Mozilla Thunderbird a try. So far it is an excellent email program; however, one thing that is driving me ... nuts is the way that Thunderbird constantly pops up with a message 'Found an attachment keyboard: attached' every time I type in 'attached' or 'attach', when composing an email.
