Running Thunderbird 8.0 on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.
I have an NNTP server that has public and private forums on it. I thus have two accounts set up, one for NNTP with no credentials, and one with a username/password set.
This works fine, when I first set it up. But I have about 40 newsgroups subscribed, with up to date read stats on them.
Now, they have changed the username and password on me.
I figured out, in right click
Settings on the account
Server Settings tab, I can untick
Always request authentication when connecting to this server and it will prompt for the password again.
But this time they changed the user name as well on me, and there is no where in the UI to set the username!
I know if I delete and recreate it I can get back in, but that is astonishingly painful, so I would prefer not too.
