My problem is simple: When i try to send a mail, i get this message:
"Sending of message failed
Unable to open the temporary file C:\DOCUME~1\FRAN§OIS\LOCALS~1\TEMP\nsmail.html
Check your temporary directory setting"
I guess someone emptied my temp folder, and know i have this problem. When i re install thunderbird, i still have the same problem.
Is there a way to recreate this file ? If this file the same for each user ? If so, could someone be gentle enough to post it in this forum ?
Thanks, and sorry for my awful english ^^.
Thunderbird creates several temporary files when sending email. The name depends upon what type of message you're sending. You don't want to re-create them, they're temporary files usefull only when sending that message.
If your temporary directory has enough free space you shouldn't have a problem.

Seems he has enough space, though...
(You said that on another topic)
I don't even know how to open a command line ! ( On Win XP )
>I don't even know how to open a command line !
Use start->programs->command prompt. Or run %SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe in start->run.
"Unable to open the temporary file C:\DOCUME~1\FRAN§OIS\LOCALS~1\TEMP\nsmail.html" implies that he did not specify a different location for temporary files using the TMP or TEMP environmental variables. Its using c:\document and settings\francois\.... I have no idea if the eight bit character in the account name has any effect.
No, none of your advice solved my problem...
I' d really like to try with someone' s nsmail.html file (maybe it' s the same temporary file he uses to send each mail, and edits it each time ?)...could you please send yours there ?
I' d be really grateful.
The temporary files are deleted when thunderbird finishes sending the message to the smtp server, at least on my system. So, I can't give you a copy of my nsmail.html file. The only time I've actually seen it in my temporary files directory was when there was not enough space to write the entire file so sending the message failed and thunderbird did not clean up after itself.
Try sending a plain text message instead of a html message to see if your symptoms change. From one of the links I gave you:
"I did a search for "nsmail." with the mozilla cross-reference web page and found the following:
mFileSpec = nsMsgCreateTempFileSpec("nsmail.tmp");
mHTMLFileSpec = nsMsgCreateTempFileSpec("nsmail.html");
mTempFileSpec = nsMsgCreateTempFileSpec("nsmail.eml");
// Let's build a temp file with an extension based on the content-type: nsmail.<extension>
so it looks like thunderbird creates different nsmail.* temporary files depending upon what type of message you send."
Same problem when i try to send the message in plain text...
And same problem with mozilla...
How much free disk space do you have in C:\DOCUME~1\FRAN§OIS\LOCALS~1\TEMP ?
Have you tried changing the TMP and TEMP environmental variables using the system control panel (you change the environmental variables in the advanced tab) to point to somewhere with a lot of free space? I point mine to a RAM Disk that I also configure all of my browsers disk caches to use.
I have the same problem.
I found out that the thunderbird seems to ignore special language characters.
My TMP or TEMP enviromental variables are:
but in the error message that the thunderbird throws the temp directory is:
I don't if this is a bug or if it just a setting that must be configured.
Does someone knows how to solve this?
I had the same on OSX and I just create a "tmp" directory at the root level of my HD. It work )
I just had the same problem. I solved it by going into my temp folder, identifying any dispensable files, and deleting them.
