Changing an email password in Mozilla Thunderbird

Question:

I changed my email password, how do I update my account settings? I am using Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.

Answer:

(This applies both to IMAP and POP3:)

For some reason, the password is not configured with the account's server settings (port, server name, user name are all in one place - password is configured elsewhere)
Thunderbird 'caches' your password. What you need to do is tell Thunderbird to 'forget' your (old) password.
  1. In the menu, select Tools | Options.
  2. Then click on Advanced
  3. Move to the Passwords section and click on 'Manage Stored Passwords'
  4. Select the site/username line where your password needs to be updated and delete it by clicking Remove.
IMPORTANT:
click Close and then restart Thunderbird.

The next time Thunderbird tries to poll email from this server, it will prompt you for the password and offer to save it.
