From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020529 BuildID: 2002052918 sorry if i am being thick but i cannot send mail via an smtp server (set to smtp.mac.com) in Mozilla 1.0. all is fine using outlook express and netscape 6.2 and i am not using a secure connection Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.set smtp server 2.try to send mail 3.server cannot be located Actual Results: i cant send mail Expected Results: to be able to send mail
WorksForMe using FizzillaCFM/2002052918 (rv1.0.0). Neil, are you sure you have it configured correctly? Can you send mail using another OS X mail client? It could be a temporary network problem between you and smtp.mac.com. Can you ping or traceroute to it?
Summary: unable to send mail via smtp → Unable to send mail via SMTP
for additional info i can send mail using these settings when using netscape or outlook express in mac osx
Neil, do you have it configured to "use name and password" with smtp.mac.com (which requires it)?
i have the prefs set to use name and password, however i have noticed the 'port' field is empty. however i have been told by someone more expert than i that this does not matter.
Hmm. Actally, if the message you're seeing is that the server cannot be located, this could well be that the DNS's you're using are in error, and not Mozilla. What you should probably do is when you encounter this problem in Mozilla, try *right then* to use another mail client, and then try Mozilla again.
to be honest i never get to the unable to locate server, i just get the looking for server. i may be a bit of a klutz but what do i do for *right then* command
I've exactly the same problem, Windows xp, mozilla 1.0, server smtp.free.fr, port 25 (no auth).

neil, can you still reproduce this problem using a current nightly build? (FWIW, send works fine for me using <smtp://mail.pacbell.net> from FizzillaMach/2003021203.)
