OE to Thunderbird

hikateko, Sep 22, 7:16pm
OE to Thunderbird I have recently ditched OE in favour of Thunderbird with Xtra as ISP, however, I am now having a problem with receiving mail? Any suggestions please - xtra have not been any help and I have not been able to find any solution on Thunderbird Help.

Are youable to send emails okay? Possibly it could be something to do with the password. A box to tick or untick. I had a problem with this a while back and I think that it was to do with password tick box not needing to be ticked in the preferences section. I'll try installing Thunderbird so I can be more helpful.

Account Settings Account settings, not preferences. Have a fiddle in server settings.

OrOr it could be outgoing server (SMTP). It's something really simple, but not obvious. Gotta go to work. Good luck

Try Tools, Account Settings, Server Settings, Security Settings. Now untick "use secure authentication" and see if that fixes the problem.

I have taken screen shots of my current "Server Settings" and "Outgoing Server (SMTP) Settings" and pasted them into an MS Word document. How do I make that document available for viewing on this thread? I don't see any problem with the current settings?

Re: 5 The "Use secure authentication" box is not ticked?

I got Thunderbird to work by importing the settings from outlook.

My OE does not load or work any more?

Hikateko , Just to check .. it is a problem actually receiving the emails? Ensure you have pop3.xtra.co.nz set and under advanced,the port should be 110 Also, if you have a firewall, ensure Thunderbird has not been stopped. Maybe just turn it off while you do a quick check to make sure it isn't causing the problem.

You were right thanks phoenix, my firewall was the problem - all seems to be working okay now. Thank you all for your input and have a great day!
