Yes, the Thunderbird addon is lacking in error messages unfortunately. As a first test, make sure the "REST URL" is correct. In the preferences of Thunderbird/Attachments, remove the existing DL account and add a new one. To make sure the URL is correct, try accessing the REST URL with a browser. You should get a username/password prompt from the browser itself (this is not the same as the login page). If you don't get a password prompt, or you get a server error, there is probably a mis-configuration on the server. > I don't see any troubleshooting information, so I don't really know where > to go from here.

Given that the normal web interface works fine, this is most likely a very simple issue.
