Configuring Thunderbird


#1

Hello.

I’m trying to configure Mozilla Thunderbird, but cannot get it to work. Can anyone give me some tips?

According to the instructions in my web panel, I should check the use authentication box. When I try to download email, I get a message “Mailserver does not support secure authentication.” When I uncheck that box and try to get mail, I get the message "Sending of password did not succeed. Mailserver “mail.xxxxxxx.com responded: Login failed” where the xxx’s are my domain name. I know the password is correct, I’ve used the same password to get my mail through webmail. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Chris
