Why can't I delete mail or move mail to a folder. This started after mail host microsoft update to their exchange server

We recently moved our mail from an in-house server to an outside hosting service. It was working well until we returned after Christmas. The mail host explained that they had received a Microsoft update to their hosting servers. Now we get an "ERROR 12" code and cannot delete mail or move mail on any of the IMAP folders. I tested the theory on Outlook and the mail deleted fine and was able to move to folders and it synchronized without issue. How can we fix this on Thunderbird?

Outlook connects to the server using emapi Thunderbird uses imap. So a comparison is nothing more than a waste, or did you explicitly set up an imap account in Outlook?
Please create an IMAP log https://wiki.mozilla.org/MailNews:Logging
I did find an [https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=741374 old bug] that indicates fasthost had incorrectly configured servers (is that your provider?) with a workaround.
It is difficult to diagnose exchange imap issues because they do not use any of the standard error codes or messages. But a log should at least provide information on the command the server does not like and that makes a good starting point.

  • Why can't I delete Mail from my iPhone? it just allows me to Archive, and where do the archives go?

    Why can't I delete Mail from my iPhone? it just allows me to Archive, and where do the archives go?

    You'll have to go to your Settings -> Mail, Contacts, etc -> Email Account -> Advanced -> Deleted Mailbox
    Turn off Archive mode, Turn on Trash
    You can also put the phone in airplane mode to delete them real quick, but that's only a temporary fix.

  • Why can't I delete added mailboxes on my iPad mini since iOS 8 update? Every time I try to delete an old mailbox that I added it boots me right out of mIl completely. I want to clean up and get rid of old unused mailboxes?

    why can't I delete added mailboxes on my iPad mini after the ios8 update?

    The mail app is crashing on you for some reason. Close the mail app and reset your iPad.
    In order to close apps, you have to drag the app up from the multitasking display. Double tap the home button and you will see apps lined up going left to right across the screen. Swipe to get to the app that you want to close and then swipe "up" on the app preview thumbnail to close it.
    Reset the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.
    If that doesn't help, you can also try resetting all settings. You will not lose any data, but most of the device settings will have to be entered in the settings app again. Settings>General>Reset>Reset all Settings.

  • Why can't I delete or edit my checkboxes in acrobat 8?

    Why can't I delete my checkboxes in Adobe acrobat?? I have created and deleted hundreds of checkboxes all with different functions. I have never run into this problem. I can't edit, move, or delete a checkbox. Nothing happens when I hover over it. They work just fine when you check them, you just can't edit them. Help!

    I'm using Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional. I literally just used that to create my form. It's very basic. No - the form is not secured. And I have no idea what enabling a form for extended rights.
    It's as simple as this. I have created a form out of a blank adobe acrobat page. I just started a new document. I have created around 200 checkboxes. All of which worked up until yesterday. They still check and uncheck. I just can't edit them. When I hover my mouse over the checkbox, it doesn't light up red anymore (which means you're hovering over an editable form) it is just the cross; the same one you use to create a checkbox.
    I'm using no special program. Simply Adobe Acrobat 8 professional

  • On an iMac why can't you delete an email without opening it?

    Why can't I delete an email without opening it first? Is this not a security risk as I have always been advised that, if I don't know who the email is from, I should delete it so as to avoid opening any suspect attachments that open immediately.
    This is my first Mac so could it be that I have not realised how to do this?
    My wife can do this on her iPad.

    A couple of points:
    1. Your concern is not really an issue with macs. More of a PC thing. "Suspect attachments" are extremely, extremely rare for a mac. I mean, like one since 1984, when I bought my first mac. The reason is that Apple seems to be on top of things and keeps updating mac software to protect your mac from this sort of thing. Just keep up with the system updates and you won't have a problem. Microsoft, on the other hand, makes tons of security holes in their software because of their mindset, i.e., that the consumer is a moron and the enemy.
    2. In my mail.app, there are three columns in the message viewer, the first which lists the mailboxes, the second which lists the emails, and the third which is a preview window. I can select an email in the second column and delete it without opening it, so I don't see what the problem is that you're having.

    If it only happens with selected emails and not all of them, I don't think this is the problem, but you can check this to be sure.
    Go to Settings>Mail, contacts, calendars>Your email account>tap the blue arrow next to the email address under Account>Advanced>Deleted Mailbox>On my iPad>Trash. I have an IMAP account and it is set to On the Server>Trash.

  • Why can't I delete uploaded photos on iPad 2

    Why can't I delete uploaded photos on iPad 2. I can select and share but the delete icon is "grayed" out

    You can only photos taken with the iPad, copied onto it via the camera connection kit, or saved from emails/websites etc directly in the iPad's Photos app.
    For photos that were synced from your computer you will need to move/remove/de-select them from where they were synced from on your computer and re-sync - or if you want to delete all synced photos then you might be able to do so by swiping across the 'Photo Library' line in Settings > General > Usage > Photos & Camera (that should give a 'Delete' button, but I haven't tried tapping it to see if it works).

  • Why can't I delete a user name and password from saved passwords in iOS 7?

    Why can't I delete a user name and password from saved passwords in iOS 7? I found them and they are not anything that I am familiar with? They are from a t-com.de. I have been to Germany in the last month. Not sure if there is any association. Any thoughts? 

    You found them ... where?  Are they in Safari somewhere?
    If so, do Settings > Safari > Clear History and Settings > Safari > Clear Cookies and Data
    If that doesn't clear them (and they are from Safari), try Settings > Safari > Advanced > Website Data and clear that area.
