I have an AT&T Email account. I unwittingly changed my password and now I can't get access to my email via Thunderbird. How do I change the password in Thunderbird. I've found several sets of instructions on the net for this but none of them seem to work. They seem to direct me to functions or commands that simply aren't there. HELP!!!

Chosen solution

Click the TB Menu button (3 horiz.bars), then Options/Options/Security/Passwords/Saved Passwords, Show Passwords, right-click the AT&T account incoming and outgoing entries, Edit Password, enter the new password, OK to close Options, restart TB.

The 3 horizonal bars were not installed so they simply were not visible. Found out how to install them, the rest was simple. Thanks !
