    My only suggestion is to ensure your userid and password are typed correctly.

    Are you by chance using the PC-Cillin antivirus product? If so, it does a couple of special things with email that you need to be aware of. Post back if so needed...

    I am not using PC-Cillin. Would this error message be the cause if l am getting invalid logon or could there be a setting which is incorrect?

    Tools, Account Settings, Server Settings for the account with the problem.

    Also check advice from your ISP-they might require non-standard settings (don't remember offhand but had a customer with a corporate shop that did so).

    Found it. The non-standard setting was for a 'secure' port. This was with a different email client where the port had to be changed directly. Checking T-bird, the same change can be implemented by checking 'Use secure connection (SSL)' in the Server Settings. But don't just check this-check with your ISP. If they have any special requirements such as this then they should tell you about them, even if they're not familiar enough with T-bird to tell you exactly how to set them.
