thunderbird conection refused/configuration could not be verified
How do I turn off my firewall(s) and check that they are off?
I rebooted my machine and thunderbird stopped working! With my original profile in .thunderbird I get
From what I've read it's probably the firewall not recognising a new version of thunderbird.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
$ uname -a
Linux bicr.local 3.3.0-4.fc16.i686 #1 SMP Tue Mar 20 18:45:14 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
$ thunderbird -v
I just tried setting up a new thunderbird account for a yahoo email address and the 'mail accout setup' tool finds the relevant servers, presumably from the internet, once I've put in the email address and clicked continue. Then if I check in Edit->Preferences->Security->Web content->show cookies, there are yahoo cookies set.
So it's talking to the internet; it's not a firewall problem is it!?!?
It's not the 'captcha' problem that seems to effect lots of google.mail accounts because my work email doesn't use captcha.
What else could stop it authenticating? I know! sounds like the passwords wrong but I've tried two accounts multiple times in thunderbird and failed every time but I can get into both through a web browser using exactly the same details.
I removed the copy of Thunderbird installed via yum, downloaded the tarball and install it, started thunderbird, set up a new account and got asked if I wanted to change the security cretificate for the server I was contacting. Maybe this was the problem with the yum version? no valid secuity certificate no authorisation?
Or maybe it's just that it's been about 3 days since the problem started and there're loads of posts saying this is a 3 day issue and then it solves it's self.
