I'm in the computer support business, so I know a bit more about computers than the average person. As of Oct 3, 2017 I no longer got any e-mail on Thunderbird. In an effort to figure out why I uninstalled TB, updated TB, ran tons of security scans all to no avail, after already successfully accessing my e-mail via the 1and1 Web Mail. So I knew the problem was not with 1and1. Searching the web failed to yield any helpful information, until I systematically disabled various security programs. Avast was not the culprit, but then I found it. Malwarebytes Premium, and narrowed it down to Web the Web Protection Component. Disabling it immediately fixed the problem. Enabling it blocked any new mail once more. So, I excluded 1and1.com, enabled Web Protection and tested the mail, and it was working. In addition to this incredibly annoying, time wasting problem. Malwarebytes since upgrade from v 2.xxxx has been more of a PITA than any other Security Program I have ever used. 1. Various Protections turn on and off in some unpredictable manner 2. Updates fail to appear on some machines, while they are announced on others 3 The exclusion interface has been badly degraded to waste a lot more time than on earlier versions. Countless postings asking for a fix went no place. Get your act together and follow Avast's excellent interface example for how to Exclude Folders/Files, swiftly with minimum clicks. Fire the incompetent idiots who are constantly screwing things up.
