Need Help With Thunderbird


Recommended Posts

i'm currently using Earlybird (Thunderdbird Alpha) but can't get it to config with my gmail account...

it keep's saying maybe my username or passwaord is wrong every time i try to config it....

i'm sure i'm putting the right username and password.....

any ideias? any reset or cleanup tool i can use?


Earlybird version 31a2

EDIT: my Linux (Ubuntu) Netbook is running Thunderbird Beta and it's syncing fine...

could it be because my windows version, due to being a alpha is something wrong?!

Check if you have IMAP enabled on your gmail account. Its under "Settings/Forwarding and POP/IMAP" and select Enable IMAP.

In thunderbird check if your settings are correct, it should be the following (taken directly from google support)

Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server - Requires SSL
  • imap.gmail.com
  • Port: 993
  • Requires SSL:Yes
Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - Requires TLS
  • smtp.gmail.com
  • Port: 465 or 587
  • Requires SSL: Yes
  • Requires authentication: Yes

Otherwise use the stable version

  • How did you install and remove Earlybird? Was it manually or through from apt-get.

What kind of error message do you get?

In your root directory is there ~/.thunderbird directory? If so try removing it.
