Sending mail used to work just fine, then last week stopped working with above mentioned error message. Checking the 'Outgoing Server (SMTP)' settings did not help, nor did upgrading from moz 1.1 to 1.2a. Note that my SMTP server is functional; I tried several (my ISPs, localhost [exim/cygwin], and a third one), all of which work fine with Outlook 2000. In the 1.1 version the 'OK' button of the SMTP server config screen appeared dead as well, but this seems better in 1.2a. Here's the snippet of my prefs.js dealing with SMTP: user_pref("mail.smtp.defaultserver", "smtp2"); user_pref("mail.smtpserver.smtp2.auth_method", 0); user_pref("mail.smtpserver.smtp2.hostname", "localhost"); user_pref("mail.smtpserver.smtp2.port", 25); user_pref("mail.smtpserver.smtp2.try_ssl", 1); user_pref("mail.smtpserver.smtp2.username", ""); user_pref("mail.smtpservers", "smtp2");
Hrrmmm... Further research unveiled that the links between my mail accounts and my smtp servers in prefs.js was fubared. My 'primary' account pointed to smtp server smtp3, which wasn't present. Before today I never manually editted my prefs.js however, so something must have gotten confused at some point...
