Then I changed and restarted. The solution was to erase the account and created it again with the new password and "finite the yoke" Expected results: I should be that Mozilla received the new password, by the other hand as programer I know that the creation of the account with a password using the database is complex, may be better to create again the amount, no loss the msn and hotmail are IMAP account I stored them as POP mail for luxury, I can give myself permission to store 4GB an enormous rate of mails at their server, Mozilla SAYS THAT NO NEW MESSAGE IS FOUND, IN THE second click it downloads all the messages togheter. So if somebody is running for perfection there is no end to it. Have a good day! Best regards Marcos Brodsky
Perhaps the bug was there for many years because never user change passwords for hotmail, microsoft live, msn.com.. So don't worry to push in the solution because users are not aware of the high capacity of Thunderbird Mozilla to handle so many tasks together
(In reply to Marcos Brodsky from comment #0) > I created an account wit email@example.com my oldy email address, > now after some years using thunderbird7. 01 I changed my password Call "password before you change" PW-0 Call "password you changed to" PW-1. > The solution was to erase the account and created it again with the new password > and "finite the yoke" Call "the new password" PW-2. What is string length of PW-0, PW-1, PW-2? Length of PW-0, PW-2 <= 16 and length of PW-1 > 16? If yes, is dup of bug 663022? See also Bug 639207.
Password=6 (letters and digits)
(In reply to Marcos Brodsky from comment #3) > Password=6 (letters and digits) My password for hotmail is also that size and it works. does it work if you change your password on the website and then in Thunderbird (ie again)?
For websites yourdomain.com firstname.lastname@example.org Thurderbird must ask you to confirm the password because the spamming machines in use on marketing. That's the work of Thunderbird to decide when or not a message is junk, Many hackers use innocent yourdomain.com as base to spam. The Server usually has an IP "Whitelist", make sure to whitening your IP or IP in the server.And keep your site clean.
