Hi,

I've been trying to use BTinternet's port settings in Ubuntu (using the settings given on the website, that I've used in windows for years).

I manage to download email, but can't send using the smtp port 587.

All that happens is thunderbird just keeps on asking for the password again, and again.


Thanks.

Hi Phil,

I've done this exactly... it's the same as what BT recommends... but still nothing.

Maybe it's a thunderbird problem?

Have you tried both ports? The SMTP server can use either port 25 or port 587

I assume you can also login ok as that guide advices you to check.
