Server authentication error

hi im getting a server authentication error and am being prompted to enter a pass word which i do not know

I’m having the same problem.   I have several email addresses, how do you know?

Two things you could try:

  1. Use the full username, including the

  2. If you don’t know the password, you can usually reset it through your provider’s website.

I think the crediential are all correct, Gary.    I think it’s Yahoo having some pain again but the message doesn’t clarify which server.   There are a total of 7 users on 5 servers, most of them with the same user name.

I see, so you have rjraibley@ 5 different domains. A useful tip is to always use the full address as the username, then it would be more obvious from the password pop-up which one it is.

It should be specified in the error log, though, so look there.

Yes, it is a mistake (or shortcoming) nearly 20 years in the making.   :frowning:

Yep, I think I found the error log and it’s apparently Yahoo.  I think Yahoo has a special hatred for T-bird, and T-bird crashes when those errors occur.   That’s what brought me to you folks and that’s why I’m moving off Yahoo.

You have a very nice product.
