Today however I cannot open it. When I try to login I get this message: "Sending of password did not succeed. Mail server pop-server.rochester.rr.com responded: Invalid user name or password. I talked to roadrunner for several hours, they gave me a new password which didn't work and send it might be a bad Thunderbird file. Thanks, Jim Van Meter Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.try to enter password 2. 3. Actual Results: above error message is returned
I want to confirm that I'm having the same identical bug. There are several problems with this. First, it won't store my password, so I have to enter it every time. I check the box over and over, though I know it's not going to make a difference. But it downloads my e-mails, THEN it sends me the error message: "Sending of password did not succeed. Mail server [mail.my-isp.net] responded: Login failed." I want to emphasize that the e-mail is downloaded.
passwords are reworked somewhat in version 3. can you try beta 4 which will be available in 1-2 weeks and report results? http://en-us.www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/early_releases/ backup your profile before using. expect changes in the UI.
I suspect this in invalid. But if you still see this problem, a protocol log for imap or pop3 will help. Attach the log file to the bug. see https://wiki.mozilla.org/MailNews:Logging If you want to test version 3 beta, http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/early_releases/ and make sure you backup your profile before running. Note: version 3 still has are other password issues
