For various reasons I want to change my newsreader and Thunderbird seems an oft suggested reader.
I have installed version 52.9.1(32 bit) being the latest version that still supports XP.
I have entered the requested data for ES server name etc and it has auto selected port 119 and everything about the set up looks about the same as with my previous newsreader (Seamonkey)
At no stage has it asked for username and password. Is this right??
When I try to subscribe to groups, the window does not load up with all the ES supported groups and hitting Refresh does not do anything either.
All I can see is a few ES related groups which suggests that it has connected to ES to get those.
Please can someone point me in the direction to get the the rest of the NG heirarchy.
