    Exclamation Thunderbird unable to get mail from Yahoo Plus

    I am unable to connect to my Yahoo Plus email account to get messages in Thunderbird. Although this started yesterday after upgrading to Thunderbird 3.1.11, it is also happening with the older version 3.1.10 on a machine that hasn't been updated yet. Everything was working properly yesterday morning, but by afternoon Thunderbird seemed to be timing out when trying to connect to Yahoo's mail server (no error messages). OS is Windows 7. All settings in Thunderbird are correct. I also tried disabling security software, but this continues to happen, even with the AV & Firewall turned off. I am only experiencing this problem with Yahoo accounts, other accounts are working as expected. Any assistance will be gratefully welcomed.

    Yes, once this started I updated the webmail interface to the latest iteration, but it hasn't made any difference. The Yahoo Mail Plus account already included POP capability, which I have been using for years already. Thanks.

    Again, my thanks. Yes, that was my first resource, but of no avail.

    My favourite is Gmail only using Windows Live Mail 2010. WLM is used 'signed-in' with my Windows Live ID.
