    ...yes, if your server supports IMAP- I use some old ones that have not been updated, but am moving away from them.

    Well this issue hasn't changed. I tried installing Tbird as a different user, no help. I've checked settings 'till I'm blue-in-the-face. When I attempted a restore from MozBackup it switched Tbird to POP and brought everything over then quit. This is very strange. I can usually fix a computer, used to do get paid to fix them but this has me stumped. Next I'm gonna see what happens when I do a restore on a completely different computer. Should have but haven't called the ISP to see if something is going on there. My ISP, Comcast, and my mail provider are two different folks. Been doing it this way for years with -0- issues but then who knows...

    Thanks for the tips.

    It's no comfort, but for what it's worth I use accounts from >4 different providers - two old and obsolete ones that my ISP took over years ago, then - a free/commercial one totally separate I've been moving things to; gmail.

    Occasionally one or both of the obsolete ones has a glitch and don't respond- then that gets sorted out. Thunderbird copes with them all.

    Could a significant port be blocked?

    Ohhhh innocent jimbo, who seems to forget firefox has an inbuilt pdf reader... now, for what you need Edge, again? :V

    Nah... being serious and not teasing, Firefox has an inbuilt pdf reader... no need to use edge for that... just make Firefox the default browser and bam! pdf reader at please.
