Thuderbird/ Gmail compatibility within comcast netork?

Thuderbird/ Gmail compatibility within comcast netork?

Hello, I recenty switched to comcast for my internet service. I can connect to the internet, but for some strange reason when I lauch my mozilla thunderbird application, it fails in getting my email.  I use gmail for all my email. Not interested in using the comcast emails.  I can still plug in my old internet provider (have not disconnected it yet thank god), and it check the mail fine. What is up with comcast?  Should I just cancel and stick with my current provider or is there a workaround?  Thanks, what a hassle!

OK< got it figured out. Thanks goodness.  Was gmail security measure, sensed the new IP via thunderbird and made me log in via browser and answer a few security quesitons to make sure it was really me and not somone trying to hyjack my gmail accounts.  All is well. Whew, thank goodness!
