I have four different email accounts that are managed by my Thunderbird account. Earlier this week my ATT.net account does not send nor receive emails. I checked my server settings + they appear to be correct. The error message I get is that the mail server doesn't recognize the password + to try again later. Has Yahoo done something I'm not aware of?

I appreciate any help I can get.

Thanks

Not sure if this is useful; but in case your ATT worked through Yahoo!, this has changed, and ATT supposedly does no longer use Yahoo!   Still it seems that one might still be able to go through the Yahoo! site to sign in to their ATT email account.  When one then signs-out, user is put at the start page for AT&T.

I was able to get my emails thru the ATT site. My browser is Firefox. Is it possible to get my ATT email to Thunderbird with the rest of my accounts? Also, I've learned Mozilla is no longer supporting Thunderbird. 

Can anyone suggest a good,free email site that handles multiple emails+is easy to understand for a novice like myself?

Thank You

That "no longer supporting Thunderbird" seems misleading.  Is Mz stopping ALL support?  Thunderbird should still work.  It works very well for AOL and Gmail, if not several others.
