Re: Thunderbird SMTP Issues after Fedora 11 Upgrade

After upgrading from fedora 10 to fedora 11, Thunderbird (3.0 beta) is
giving me fits. At first, I was unable to send any email. I figured
out that I needed to disable "security and authentication' checkbox
in my SMTP server settings in order for mail to work.

This solution however doesn't work for newsgroups. Any attempt to send
an emailfrom the newsgroup reader fails. I get a message saying that
I need to check my server settings.

Has anyone else encountered this issue?

This bug seems similar:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=505084

I had to send this posting from more normal email, and not the group
listing.

Thanks,

I had the same issue, except I'm not using TB for newsgroups. But I wonder if you could simply create a duplicate entry in "Outgoing Server (SMTP) Setings" with the authentication option toggled and use that for news.

Go into "Edit/Account Settings ..." and scroll down the left pane to the bottom (I had a lot of trouble locating this, myself).

I'd appreciate it if someone could explain what's going on, though. Why do I need to uncheck "use name and password" on this F11 box but not on my others? And how/why does it work?
