Problems sending email from Thunderbird

I had a computer crash a few weeks ago and had to rebuild the software.  Moved up to Thunderbird 3.1for my email.  When I tried to receive email for my att account I had no trouble.  However now when I try to send from Thunderbird I get the following message;

Problems sending email from Thunderbird

An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded:  From address not verified – seehttp://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/original/manage/sendfrom-07.html.  Please verify that your email address is correct in your Mail preferences and try again.

 

Before with an older version of thunderbird I had no problems.  I noticed now the one setting on TB is for “SSL/TLS”, not

just “SSL” or “TLS” as before.

I think you may have two problems.

If you are trying to send email using a “From” address other than your primary DSL email, you need to verify it through AT&T Yahoo’s complicated and confusing verification system.  See this support article:  http://www.att.com/esupport/article.jsp?sid=KB402186(and good luck to you in figuring out how to do it — I’ve done it for many accounts and still do it wrong several times before I get it right).

Here are the Outgoing Server settings I use for Thunderbird 3.1:

Description:  can be anything or left blank

Server Name:  smtp.sbcglobal.yahoo.com (my primary account is xxxxx@sbcglobal.net — you may need to use smtp.att.yahoo.com if your primary account email is xxxxx@att.net)

Port: 25

Connection Security:  STARTTLS, if available

Authentication method:  Password, transmitted insecurely

User Name:  xxxxx@sbcglobal.net (or whatever your PRIMARY user name is, probably xxxxx@att.net in your case)
