EMail Problem in Thunderbird

Experts,

I was sending and receiving email just fine using Thunderbird, but now all of a sudden I get a message that my server (verizon) is refusing SMTP messages.  I've pinged the server by name and I get a response.  What's the issue?

Hello NigelRocks,

Try deleting and then recreating the account in Thunderbird.

If no joy, run Thunderbird Standard Diagnostics

Hope this helps!
