Email Client and VM password

This may be an old question but it is new to me, so I will apologise in advance if this is going over old ground.

I access my VM email through a client called Thunderbird.

My email is an @ntlworld email account.

I have been with VM for many years, hence the old email extension.

I have now started to have an issue where it asks for a password nearly every time I run the client.

I have many other emails that I access through this client but never have this issue.

I have set the account access as per the VM requirements so everything appears as it should be.

(https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-media-mail-update-settings-mozilla-thunderbird)

I have used the IMAP options as shown in the link.

Once I have entered the password it works ok , until I close and re-open Thunderbird.

Then, and not every time, it may ask for the password again.

Now Thunderbird has a password vault where it saves the passwords for the email accounts.

I can see a passwords saved for ....

imap://imap.virginmedia.com (imap://imap.virginmedia.com) 

smtp://smtp.virginmedia.com (smtp://smtp.virginmedia.com)

So this should be OK.

Any ideas as to why this has started now after many years of good service?

Regards
