I have accidently deleted my account. I would like to reinstate it but I am not sute of the password. Can you help?

Chosen solution

If you told Thunderbird to remember your account password, you can look it up in your Options. At the top right of the Thunderbird window, click the menu button , then select Options > Security > Passwords > Saved Passwords > Show Passwords.

If not, check with your email provider about password reset options.
