Thunderbird is GO !!

What with all the aggro that is WIndows 8 (and now they want me to upgrade to 8.1 ... should I ?) and Windows Mail ...I ducked out of Mail and downloaded Mozilla Thunderbird for my Googlemail e-mail account.  Now I discover that Thunderbird can handle both IMAP and POP3 protocols - so I set up an extra e-mail account using my old e-mail details/settings and BINGO ... 100+ old e-mails came shooting down the line !! 

A good job really - because I now can't log in to my old laptop as some of the keyboard keys have just packed up - including two numbers that are part of my log-in password - aargh.  Just another "interesting exercise" to get my rusty computer head around ...
