Problems sending email from Thunderbird

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;

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).

Problem with email after Thunderbird Upgrade

Did your ability to receive mail suddenly stop? Was it working before?

  • Check the service status of your ISP. (Many ISPs have a status or alert page on their website.) They may be having technical difficulties.
  • If your ISP provides a web-based email interface, try to log in and view your mail. If you can see your messages, the problem is probably related to your account configuration.
  • If you cannot log in to your ISPs web-based email interface, your password may have changed. If so, it must also be changed in Thunderbird. To change your password:
    • At the top of the Thunderbird window, click the Tools menu and select Options, or click the menu button fx57menu and choose Options.
    • On the Security panel, click on the Passwords tab and then click Saved Passwords….
    • Click on the relevant account and then click Remove.
    • Close and re-open Thunderbird. You will be prompted to enter a new password for the account.
  • If you recently updated Thunderbird, the firewall component of your Internet security suite may have blocked access of the new version of Thunderbird to the Internet. When this happens, IMAP folders may also disappear. There is some basic information about antivirus products and their known bad interactions with Thunderbird.

    Remove Thunderbird from your firewall’s list of trusted or recognized programs, then add it back manually (or when prompted). Otherwise, consult the documentation for your security suite / firewall / antivirus product for instructions on how to modify the firewall component of that product.

Redirecting emails in Thunderbird problem

Redirect Mails in Thunderbird :

Mails that have been sent to you in error can be forwarded in Thunderbird to the correct recipient of the email. This is happening regularly in companies for example where emails may reach the wrong recipient.

The forwarded message however does not look like the original one because it normally has the mail header attached to it. This looks pretty ugly and is not needed most of the time.

The Thunderbird add-on Mail Redirect allows you to redirect mails instead of forwarding them. The core difference is that a redirect sends the original mail along its way, while a forwarded mail adds the header information to it.

This ensures that the recipient will only see the original message and not the information that are attached when the email gets forwarded.

he extension Mail Redirect adds a Redirect option to the Thunderbird right-click menu which means that you can redirect multiple emails at the same time.

Instead of making use of the right-click menu, you can also use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-B to do the same.

Emails that you want to redirect (or bounce) are opened in the following way in Thunderbird.

The resend mail form looks slightly different from regular mail forms. The first difference is the resend from menu at the top. Select one of your email addresses which you want used to resend the email.

You then need to add another email address under resend to, which is the target email address you want to send the email to.

The third and final difference is that you cannot add text or other data to the email, it just contains the same data that it arrived with.

The extension offers a couple of settings that you can take a look at when you open its options page in the Thunderbird add-ons manager.

Here you can disable the option that stores a copy of redirected mails in the sent folder, or add default to, cc and bcc resend recipients to make things easier.

This can be useful if you redirect messages to the same recipient at all times, or include a recipient at all times when that happens.

Unable to send Email Messages

If you are unable to send email messages from your Thunderbird account, there can be two reasons behind this:

  • Inappropriate Thunderbird Settings
  • Blocked Port 25 by ISP (Internet Service Provider)

To resolve this issue:

Ensure that Thunderbird Settings are appropriately configured

  • Incoming mail server (POP3/IMAP server): mail.yourdomain.com
  • Outgoing mail server (SMTP server): mail.yourdomain.com
  • Username: the full e-mail address like email@yourdomain.com
  • SMTP authentication must be enabled for the login to be successful.
  • Try using alternative TCP port 2525 for SMTP Server.
