Thanks for your report, however this does not look like a "bug" (a problem in the program code) but instead like a support request (changing the settings). Support is provided on http://support.mozillamessaging.com/ - please take a look there and browse through the existing answers or ask a new question. Thanks!
How can this not be a bug. I had no problems in the prior version. This only happened after updating to the new version.
What happens if you start *Windows* in safe mode? If that helped, try reinstalling Thunderbird from scratch - https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/ - and if that does not help please tell us what AV and firewall do you run? If all else fails, what happens if you reinstall 38.1.0 from http://archive.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/releases/38.1.0/
I still have the same problem in safe mode. I use kaspersky Internet security version 15.0.2 I have reverted back to 38.1 and do not have the issue.
It seems unlikely that we'd have this type of regression between 38.1.0 and 38.2.0, we took so few changes per http://mzl.la/1J9aZyD But if it fails in Windows safe mode then it does seem to point in that direction. Let's see what Matt thinks.
I had to upgrade my release version from 38, but I had no issue getting mail from Hotmail with either 38.1 or 38.2. I would be more inclined to think there is a Firewall issue not recognizing V38.2
So how do I correct the firewall, if it is a firewall problem.
Mark looks like we missed a response. Did you get it working?
Yes it is working. It started working with the next version.
