Keep getting this error message. The current operation on "inbox" (or other folder) did not succeed. The mail server for (my e-mail address) responded: Unrecognized command:ID. I have checked, and double checked my server settings and they are correct. I haven't had any issues with Thunderbird until I changed from POP3 to IMAP. Not sure if these errors began after a Thunderbird update, but I regularly check and install the latest updates. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Forgot to mention that some e-mails don't come in timely; sometimes even up to a day late.

MozillaZine keeps telling me how many letters are in "Mozilla" and I put "7" and "seven" and both are apparently incorrect and now I'm locked out. How many different ways can I spell out s-e-v-e-n?

My main issue is I want Thunderbird to automatically open Lightning Calendar when opening Thunderbird. FAQ says to add this to the target, which I did ---> "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe" thunderbird -mail -calendar . However, T.Bird still boots directly to my Inbox instead of loading the Calendar tab. How can I get this working? And now, how can I actually register an account on MozillaZine if the security question is busted?

My ISP recently decommissioned its email server and I have since switch to a Gmail account. I was able to setup my Gmail account in Thunderbird but can't delete my previous email account that was decommissioned. I followed the instructions to delete the account but "Remove Account" is grayed out in the Account Actions drop down.

Any help or suggestions as to how I can delete my old email account from Thunderbird would be most appreciated.
