I can recieve emails, but can't send

I have only recently discovered Thunderbird Portable, and I am truly impressed with it, except for one thing. The one thing, of course, being the subject of this post/topic.

When I attempt to send, it asks for my mail server's password (even when I have previously given it the password, and checked the "Use password manager to remember this password' option), churns for a bit, and then declares that it can't access the server.

I have copied the settings for the server directly from Outlook Express, which has no problem with sending and receiving emails.

Any advice? Suggestions? Have I somehow gotten a corrupted copy of TBP?

I'm new to Thunderbird, and (apart from this problem) seriously considering migrating to it from Outlook Express on my computer.

I'm using version 2.0.0.14 (it just recently auto-updated).

go to

your mail server help page and look for the specific configuration for thunderbird...

And check that you configured your smtp well... Wink

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report Biggrin

Excellent!

I found a section on my ISP's home page giving specific information. It turned out that it was set to use password authentication on the SMTP server where it wasn't necessary, and should have been turned off. I unchecked this, and all was well.

Thank you.
