Thunderbird. Invalid login/password pair.

  Ray5776 15:11 29 Jul 2006

When I go to Thunderbird/Get Mail I receiver the following alert "Sending the password did not succeed
Mailserver responded: [AUTH] Invalid login/password pair"

I still get my mail OK as login and password are correct. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of this annoying message please.

As you haven't got any replies and I can't provide an answer either, have a look at the Thunderbird forum click here. Password management is quite a common topic, so be sure to read through any relevant threads - you might just find the answer that you are looking for.

Loads of info but not the easiest of forums to use, I have registered and logged on but where am supposed to enter my question.
Thanks anyway ide.h I`ll put up with it for now, thought this would be an easy one.

In the Account settings - under Server Settings - is "Use secure authentification" ticked - if so, untick it.

Thanks for the suggestion, have looked and it is not ticked.

'logged on but where am supposed to enter my question.'

At the top (ie above the topics) there are [Create new topic] and [Ask new question] links.

Thanks vinnyT posted it there now, see if they have the answer, will post it here if they do.
