Last few days I was trying to fix send/receive emails; following all kinds of suggestions (generating pass in AOL mail Account Security section, copying and pasting where requested) I managed to make incoming mail work on my PC. Sending the mails still no go despite generating a different pass for outgoing mail. I am getting this: Unable to authenticate to Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.verizon.net. Please check the password and verify the 'Authentication method' in 'Account Settings | Outgoing server (SMTP)'. Where am I going wrong??? Please help.

I'm using Thunderbird for gmail in IMAP mode. In my IMAP folder, I have a Junk subfolder, and in my Gmail subfolder I have a Spam subfolder. What is the difference between these? Does Gmail determine Spam, and Thunderbird determine Junk? Are BOTH Spam and Junk used for the Thunderbird adaptive junk filter log?

I have two computers in my household. One for myself and one for my wife. Have been using Thunderbird email on my computer for a few years with no issue. My wife uses a different email. We both get email from the same server using the same email address. I recently set up a new computer and had to download Thunderbird and synced all my bookmarks from the old. Before this anything each of us did was separate from each other. Now if either of us read or delete an email, it is deleted from the other computer. Once an email is downloaded I need any actions done to that email to be separate from the other computer as it has always been. The version of Thunderbird I downloaded is the same version I had before except it is 64bit rather than 32bit. I have tried all settings but nothing changes this. Any help appreciated.

When I enter my SMS code as part of SSL/TLS security OAuth2 authentication method (see my account5 below) I get the following: __________________________________________________ Need admin approval Thunderbird www.thunderbird.net

Thunderbird needs permission to access resources in your organisation that only an admin can grant. Please ask an admin to grant permission to this app before you can use it. Have an admin account? Sign in with that account Return to the application without granting consent __________________________________________________

I don't know what app is being refered to in the above message but I am the administrator of my account and have given full permissions for Thunderbird to cross Windows Firewall etc. etc.

Since this problem started this morning I get the busy rotating symbol when accessing my account5 mail directories and their contents do not appear to be updating.

One day Mozilla started stopping all outgoing emails to notify me of "Following recipients are in To field:" after I click the "send" button. The message is not sent without acknowledging this useless message and could be sitting in the background for hours. Is this a security check to make sure I'm sending the message to the right people? how do I turn this off?

I've been using Thunderbird for years and have a pretty extensive folder tree set up under my Profile. My internet provider is Comcast. I just happened to look on the Comcast website at my email. The exact same folder tree (and contents) is sitting on the Comcast site. WTF! Obviously the only way that Comcast could get that is if Thunderbird is uploading (syncing) to Comcast everything that I do when Thunderbird is open. How do I stop it, and whom do I slap for allowing it to happen in the first place?

I used to be able to send emails using Thunderbird to Office365 using SMTP, but it is no longer working, although I'm still receiving emails.

Getting the following error: Login to server smtp.office365.com with username ***@*** failed

Settings Server: smtp.office365.com Port: 587 Encryption: STARTTLS

The problem occurs with Windows and also Mac OS (I installed Thunderbird to help troubleshoot).

I'm using Office 365 Family, so there is no option to manage the users, as there is in the business version, and which has been suggested by others with the same problem.

It's unclear to me if the problem lies with Thunderbird or Microsoft (I suspect the latter). Any advice would be very welcome.

I had a yahoo account configured on my laptop with Thunderbird and it worked flawlessly. I need to change to a gmail account, so I edited the account settings, changed the email addresses, changed the IMAP & SMTP settings etc. to the new gmail settings. I am able to receive mail just fine, but am unable to send mail. I get a yahoo prompt to sign in each time I try to send mail (attached). I close that prompt and then receive a message

Sending of the message failed. Unable to authenticate server (SMTP) smtp.gmail.com. Please check the password and verify in Account Settings.

I have removed saved passwords and verified all settings. Could there still be something hanging on from the old yahoo account? At this point I have uninstalled TB, reinstalled, removed all accounts, recreated them. Nothing seems to allow me to authenticate to the SMTP server.

I am using Port 465, server name smtp.gmail.com, Authentication method OAuth2 and connection is SSL/TLS.

Any other ideas? Thank you! Lisa
