Some time ago I installed Thunderbird and never got past the error message:"pop.xxxxxxxxxx.yahoo.com responded, invalid user/password". I recently installed TB again and get the same message. Same computer I might add, running Firefox on XP sp2. I am thinking this might be a "profiles" problem, however, my password works on my other e-mail clients including Outlook Express. Any help?

You might try to set up your popEmail account (again, or with a different name), following Yahoo's instructions for Netscape (which is similar to TB).

I have no Netscape Browser, too much superfluous stuff comes with it. I use a Maxthon Browser,Firefox, SBC and IE. The last 2 rarely. Outlook Express and Yahoo (came with SBC) mail are problem free. Thunderbird should have read and used the same data that is on my registry. That is what I don't understand and asked if it might be an orphan problem from a non-deleted past profile. Not sure. Any help would be appreciated.
