How do I edit/delete a stored password? (Solved!)
« on: September 25, 2014, 09:33:18 am »
Hi!  I've had to change my email accounts on my ISP server and the password was changed.  Now Thunderbird can't get my emails because the stored password is wrong.

How do I get into the password manager?

I haven't installed a third party password manager.

Thanks!

Does this help ?

Tools > Options> Security > Passwords (tab) > Saved Passwords
(or possibly in Linux .. Edit > Preferences > Security > Passwords (tab) > Saved Passwords)

Delete the stored passwords .. then close Thunderbird, and reopen it (to clear the cached passwords) .. it should then prompt for a new password when trying to connect.

Yes - thanks.  The main problem was that the top menu (File, Edit etc) had disappeared.  Once I figured out how to get it back it went quick.
