Description

17 years ago
What happens is after creating a mail message and hitting the send button, the
send mail just stalls. The "Sending Message" dialog comes up and it never
progresses past the "Connecting to server" part. There is no error. The log
doesn't say anything, but it just doesn't send. It waits and waits until I end
up cancelling the process. 

I've tried several solutions: 1) Editing my prefs file manually. 2) Trying two
different SMTP servers - I use PostFix on my normal email and when checking the
server logs it seems to receive the initial connect request, but Mozilla never
continues. 3) Creating a local SMTP log by adding the environment variables, but
it doesn't give any error message.

This preference was in my prefs file that I when I took out worked:

user_pref("mail.smtpserver.smtp2.redirector_type", "netscape");

I had installed Netscape 6.1 before Mozilla.

Sorry, my bad.
