Re: Plusnet mail on Thunderbird and Yahoo mail on Thunderbird

Has this worked OK for some time before these problems occurred? It looks like log in is failing on both accounts. Is your normal internet access working OK and at normal speed?

Re: Plusnet mail on Thunderbird and Yahoo mail on Thunderbird

There is a service status announcement in force at the moment that some users are having problems accessing mail with PC clients. However since your problems are long term the general problem is likely to be coincidence.

Do you have Thunderbird set up on a desktop PC, and is its operating system Windows 10?

Re: Plusnet mail on Thunderbird and Yahoo mail on Thunderbird

Maybe a silly question, but what is the version number of Thunderbird you are using? I had problems accessing some Plusnet mail on my VERY old but but previously reliable TB a couple of months back, but an update to the latest version cured them.

Re: Plusnet mail on Thunderbird and Yahoo mail on Thunderbird

That's a good question @jab1.

@stathe The current version of Thunderbird is 52.4.0 (select Help->About Thunderbird to check this).

Whilst a different email client could be tried my suggestion is to stick with Thunderbird and resolve the problem. It should work.

Re: Plusnet mail on Thunderbird and Yahoo mail on Thunderbird

Is it convenient to temporarily delete the Yahoo mail account from Thunderbird leaving just the Plusnet one? Doing troubleshooting on a single well understood account should be easier.
