I've had SSL/TLS enabled from the beginning of my Thunderbird use, with
and without TorBirdy, so that shouldn't be the problem. I've been using
port 465, which I read was the proper port for SSL to work with. And
using normal password authentication. I don't think it gets that far
though as it shows no sign of any successful connection and when not
working, doesn't prompt for any password.

What exactly do you want to know? I have both riseup & Google accounts,
having followed their config settings for server names & default ports
(995 for pop & 465 for SMTP), which I've rechecked repeatedly.
I've barely touched the config editor.
- - Changed network.proxy.socks_remote_dns to true when I attempted to
torify Thunderbird before TorBirdy. It didn't work so I changed it back
- - mail.server.default.autosync_offline_stores to true
- - use_status_for_biff to false (I don't use imap, but tweaked this in
case I ever changed my mind and forgot this existed)
