my TB forgets the stored password for my gmail IMAP account. It happens every day. I need to restart it and enter the password again and check the "remember" box. Is this a bug?
Thanks for help
See if anything here ( http://kb.mozillazine.org/Password_not_ ... hunderbird ) is helpful.
Vista Home Premium 64 - FX 37.0.1 & TB 31.6.0 Win 8.1 - FX 37.0.1 and TB 31.6.0
Thanks thats something I have already checked - with no luck. It seems the password is remembered but IMAP does not accept it for the first time or something like that.
I too have this problem.
It's pretty annoying *sigh*
I also have this problem.
Are you guys using Gmail SMTP servers? Are you copying the sent email to the server?
One of my more technically-savvy users sends via GMail SMTP, hence does not need to copy the sent mail to the GMail server. He also does not send immediately, he always sends later with UM Tools (and overriding the max version). He does not have this issue very often.
go to gmail help forum. They have a post there about this. you need to go to a website that unblocks something on your account. Then TB will take your pass just fine.
I HAVE FOUND THE SOLUTION, THANKS ibex333!

Sending of password did not succeed. Mail server pop.gmail.com responded: Username and password not accepted.
Verify your password and then clear the captcha. If you're a Google Apps user, visit https://www.google.com/a/yourdomain.com/UnlockCaptcha. Be sure to replace 'yourdomain.com' with your actual domain name.
Repeatedly prompted for your username and password.

It is also recommended to set "check for new mail" to 10 seconds.
Unfortunately it did not help. It seems my TB is sending login information again and again when I work with folders. It seems the IDLE command does not work properly although I have enabled it in TB.
