Your reply came in code. I did change security to SSL. Now it's asking for my password XXXXX sever pop.att.yahoo.com. I entered the same one I use at At&t Yahoo! mail,[email protected] It didn't accept it?

are you using the same server address in outlook express? pop.att.yahoo.com ?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
yes

when you try to retrieve your messages in thunderbird, what error are you getting exactly? (you open your thunderbird, what happens exactly?)

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Sending of password XXXXX not succeed: Mail server pop.att.yahoo.com responded. invalid user/ password

please open your thunderbird

go to tools, and then account settings.

 

in server settings section

 

did you type your username, with @bellsouth.net (did you also include this part?)

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
no. I did now and I GOT MAIL. You did it.

Thanks
