I had the same problem. I fixed it this way:

Login to your Yahoo account and then turn on “Allow apps that use less secure sign-in”. This is located in the security section.

First off Godaddy says that thunderbird should recognise the settings and set it up automatically as soon as I put in my email address and password. It doesn’t, it comes back with server info for outlook mail.

Anyway I put in the proper server info and port settings and it still comes back with Username or password invalid.

Just to make you aware I have tested the username and password on webmail and have access with no problems at all.

I am using the manual settings posted on godaddy for that particular email account:

Secure SSL/TLS Settings
