Can't change Email password on Seamonkey mail

by bently / January 20, 2010 11:45 PM PST

Using Win XP SP3, Seamonkey v 2.0.2

Installed a new modem and had to set new password.

Now I can not access Seamonkey email or newsgroups because of incorrect password for email. (Can not access Seamonkey newsgroup for help.)

AT&T will hot help on Seamonkey email.

I googled for info on changing "Seamonkey email password" and not able to find anything useful.

Can anyone walk me thru the steps to change the password so I can access my email in Seamonkey? Or direct me to a site where info is available.

Thanks very much,

I would not have thought that changing a modem would cause problems like that. The modem just communicates between the computer and your ISP, so it is not interested in passwords and such like.

Or do you mean a router?

Also, I have used Seamonkey myself before but I never used its email software. However, I assume that it is like Netscape's Communicator email software, such as the Seamonkey browser is based on Netscape's browser.

I can't see why changing a modem would affect email and newsgroup settings.

I would treat Seamonkey's email the same as Netscape's Communicator, and look for email setup for that, eg;

But in addition I would check AT&Ts web site Help and Support for their email and newsgroup setup advice. Most good ISPs have guidance on the web sites.

Its a combo

Thanks Mark,

Actually it is a "2-wire, modem/router". Didn't think of it being a combo when I posted my message. I had to setup a new password when I installed the new modem/router according to AT&T tech.

I will check the link you gave and see if I can make it work//

Appreciate the reply.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
