N/A help

I have browsed the forum but can't see my problem :?
It (thunderbird) doesn't want to connect to the server. I can send mail out no problem.
Normally it says "connecting to" or "no new messages on server" but lately it does nothing Shockedops: Shockedops:

My parents tried to set up Thunderbird and had a similar problem. Somewhere in the settings there is a tick box saying something like "use username and password to access server" with space to enter said password. Turning the tickbox OFF cured the problem.

I have thunderbird working no problem on imap by just completing the set up. You do need to make sure that you tell thunderbird that it's an imap account you're creating as opposed to a pop3.
