Customer Question
Does Thunderbird download email...

Does Thunderbird download email onto my laptop, like Windows Live Mail does, or do the emails stay on ATT/Yahoo's server as when I access them through a Yahoo portal?

Technician's Assistant: Are you logged into your Yahoo account on any other devices?

Yes

Technician's Assistant: Do you have security questions or a phone number on file to help reset your password?

I have no security questions. I don't need to reset , and don't u/s where/what file the phone number is ***** that you ask about.

To answer your question, it depends on how you setup Thunderbird. It has the option to do both. We can review your settings currently or I can provide the steps to add into Thunderbird. Let me know and I will work with you.
