This is the last update and this is first time when i have problem with this ? after update all my account did not work keep saying folder missing so i delete the accounts and add them again ( i use google IMAP) all good till once in a while when i open thunderbird email account disappear, i have to close thunderbird and open again to make it work, also TAGS are not working. all my filters are set up in my google account so they go in a specified folder, now in thunderbird e-mails are not tagged.


Is time to search for another e-mail client ?

Moving to Thunderbird Support.

1. No, 52.2.0 is not the current release version. That would be 54.0.

2. GMail doesn't have folders, it uses labels to indicate which "folders" a message is associated with. Tags and labels are not the same things.

3. I'd say "No" but it's totally up to you.

Version 52.2.0 seems to have some problems with IMAP folders, particularly related to Google. This is not noted in the known issues, but see https://www.ghacks.net/2017/06/15/thund ... p-folders/. I also had problems compacting IMAP folders. It gives a strange server error. Not sure if it compacts correctly. The only fix I know is to revert to 52.1.1 until the Mozilla team can find and fix the issue.
