User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv:1.9.1.6) Gecko/20091201 Firefox/3.5.6
Build Identifier: thunderbird 3.0

I downloaded the newest version of Thunderbird for Mac and have trouble with it ever since.  Most problems are fixed by working with my account settings.  But now it won't accept my password even though it's the same password I use for att.yahoo.com on line and with the iMail program.  So, what's the problem?  I don't have to use Thunderbird, fortunately, and may just hang it up in favor of more dependable mail programs, though I have been using it happily for years.
