I have just bought a new computer running win 7. I have been trying to set up Thunberbird version3 and I am having real problems.
I have it receiving mails but I just cannot get it to send.
I 'know' I am using the correct server information but no matter how I configure the smtp server box it just will not send - just tells me it has failed to connect due to unknown error
There are a couple of things different in TB from configuring OE. The smtp server box has an item at the very top labelled 'Description' - do I have to do something with this ?
Under 'Connection Security' do I click NONE - STARTTLS - or SSL/TLS
I have been told by my domain server provider that I should use secure authentication, and I am using the correct username and password.
There is really not an awful lot of ways you can go wrong with this - I am just mystified.
Any ideas ?
