Thunderbird

Anyone using this program.? I have it installed on another computer and I copied the settings for my new computer but it Reckons my smtp server setting are incorrect. Is this program always that difficult to install.?

Yes I use this program. It takes a bit of getting use to. If you are using it as an email client for an email account from your ISP, the defaults are usually wrong. Plus, when you have saved your settings the first time (especially for the outgoing server), you will have to change back certain settings. I can send you some screenshots if you give your email address.

Go to your email provider's website and double-check your settings - there may be minor things you have to change.

You also shouldn't post your email address here, as the other poster has suggested.

Don't listen to Dunedin_Ree, she is never of any help.

Email sent. If you look at the settings for this at your ISP's website, there is more to it than what they say.

As I said, I have Thunderbird installed on another computer. Can I just put it on a dvd and then load it into my new computer, or won't it work that way.? I would have all the settings.?

How do I remove that email address please.?

geek_pato1, Sep 26, 3:09 pm

I don't think you can now, once you place another post, no previous posts can be edited. I get annoyed with it also.

geek_tomcraft, Sep 26, 3:21 pm

I don't think it's that easy.

geek_tomcraft, Sep 26, 3:22 pm

Hit the edit button beside that post and remove it

There won't be an edit option on a post that far back. Even though it's not that far back. I can't even edit mine back near that one.

I've learnt something there, thankyou.
Another day that can be signed off as a success!

geek_pato1, Sep 26, 4:36 pm
