My thought regarding the Thunderbird problem is this:
The setting up of POP3 account(s) calls for using the username password at any given email server.
So POP3 from yahoo mail might need the logon password at that website,
where the logon password at google mail might differ. Instructions about the POP3
setup I found at the server help page.https://gmail.google.com/support/bin/answer...13285&topic=194
It might provide you with a clue or two.
Yahoo mail depends on a upgrade subscription to get POP3.
Since I'm cheap, I simply forward the messages there to google gmail and deal with 'em.
I really hope you can get Thunderbird going. I've found it easier to use than Outlook Express,
and in general I trust Mozilla code more than Microsoft for security regarding email.
