I have M/T on my work PC. When I am at home using Thunderbird I have no problems sending or receiving mail. At work, I can recieve mail, but cannot send mail. I get an error saying to check my STMP server settings. Obviously something with my work network is not allowing me to send mail out. I have turned off my firewall, turned off my Antivirus..and still nothing....But like I said it works fine at home. Has anyone had experience with this problem..and is there an answer?? I can always use my web based mail, but that defeats the purpose of Having Thunderbird and all of the options that go with it...Any help would be appreciated. It's not really a problem, just has been bugging me..have searched everywhere I can think of and can't find any info on this..Thanks in advance!!

What the problem sounds like is that at home you have a certain outgoing SMTP (like mine is smtp.comcast.net) and unless you work at home, you probably have a different outgoing service at your workplace.

After finding out what that is, go to Tools --> Outgoing Server (SMTP) --> Click Add and type in the offices outgoing server address.

Try that and post back. :whistling:

Thanks so much...I was going nuts because it always worked until a few months ago. Searched and found they blocked all ISP mail servers for outgoing. Did find one that I could use here and it's working fine!! Thanks again!
