    Until and unless you let us know what, if anything, you have tried, offering advice might well be useless; I, for one, shall await your providing the needed information.

    You could also help with error messages and or what does it do when it attempts to connect.

    Does Thunderbird start when you double click it?

    That I don't think anyone can answer. There was one member whose update, pretty sure it was FCU, took over 24 hours. Yikes.
