I have shut down my computer and when I go into my email account it for some reason does not asked for my password....Not sure what has happened. Would appreciate any help...

My guess is you have set the save option and the password is saved, so there is no need to ask for it.

No...I never do that...but is there a way to un-do this?

From the Menu Bar select Tools-Options-Security-Passwords-Saved Passwords

Delete the saved password entry and restart Thunderbird.
