error with plusnet email

I use Thunderbird in debian with mate.

Messages using my gmail account work normally.

My plusnet account however returns this :-

Error with account Plusnet

Sending of password for user xxxx did not succeed. Mail server mail.plus.net responded: USER xxxx set, mate

Can anyone help me to resolve/explain this please?

Is this with an email account which worked OK until this evening? In any case I suggest leaving settings as they are until tomorrow, then try again.

Plusnet were due to make network changes tonight though I don't think a noticeable effect on users was expected.

Thanks for that suggestion David..this late at night it's very practical!

I'll see what the morrow brings....... (although it has been present all day - and despite reboots etc...)

Probably. Since email clients are being affected it's likely the impact on webmail would be more significant, hence take it offline.
