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).
