I changed my password on my Comcast email account, and now I cannot access my email using Firefox. There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about passwords anywhere on your support site. I've looked in every single menu item, and there is NOTHING to do with passwords. Help. Help me, please.

Unable to receive e-mail messages "The RETR command did not succeed" "Mail server x.x.x responded: Problem retrieving message"

Thunderbird v 31.4.0 running on Windows 7 I use Thunderbird to read/organize my e-mail every day and have done so succesfully for years. My ISP is AT&T and occasionally, I get error messages when receiving messages indicating a problem with the incoming server, or sometimes with the outgoing server when sending, but until now, a retry has always worked to clear up the error. Now it looks like a solid problem. I am able to send e-mails, but I cannot receive e-mails to any of my 4 e-mail accounts (all AT&T/Yahoo accounts). When I click "Get Messages" I get the error:

  " The RETR command did not succeed. Error retrieving a message.  Mail server pop.att.yahoo.com
     responded: problem retrieving message"

I called AT&T support. First they asked me if I could verify my Account settings. Yes, nothing has changed. They asked me to try "inbound.att.net" port 995 as my incoming server. No help, I get the same error. They asked if I can access my e-mail using the browser at ATT.NET - Yes, that works fine. They said they find multiple reports of this type of error doing a Google search, but unfortunately, they say they do not support Thunderbird, so they can't help... Good Luck  :(

I suspect it IS an issue with access to incoming e-mail server, since I have not made any recent changes to my account settings and there were no Thunderbird software updates immediately preceeding this issue. Any help would be appreciated. I can read my e-mail online, but there are ads everywhere and much prefer reading and organizing my e-mail with Thunderbird. Thanks.

I have followed the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/using-lightning-google-calendar#w_read-and-write-access to install the Firefox add-on “Provider for Google Calendar” and have created a Google calendar within Lightning.

When I create new events on either the "Lightning side” or the "Google side”, the new events show up in both calendars, that is in the Lightning calendar on my desktop Mac and also when I log into the Google calendar on my Android.

My Lightning calendar contains many events (it is my principal calendar and I have been using it for years). Is there a way to export these existing events (or a subset thereof, for example from the 1 May 2018 and onwards) from the Lightning to the Google calendar

Thanks for your help.

The Address Book is completely useless to me if I can't add Contacts to it. There is currently no way to do this and no place to go for instructions. Can someone please post understandable instructions about how to find and then open my Personal Address Book or the Collected Address Book and then please tell me what the difference is between them? It is VERY non-intuitive.

I don't use Chrome and don't know why this is interfering with opening the program. I have been clicking on 'stop script' twice to enable the program to run properly. How do I correct this?

Many thanks.
