I have seen many complaints in this genral regard, in particular with Yahoo mail. I can log in for chat using Pidgin, but not with Thunderbird.
Personally I think this smells! - of background greed and proprietarism in many places.
I will try and attach a sanitized .PNG of the login screen if I can here. This old thread needs to be revivied!

I've tried Thunderbird and Sylpheed-claws but same thing!
Any help would be appreciated.
P.S. If I go online I can login with no problem.
