When at home I have a wireless connection to my home network (Netgear FM114P) and connected via DSL to SBCGlobal. I then set my SMTP to smtp.sbcglobal.net. I have had this working correctly in both places. Incoming always works with pop.mingspring.com. Now that I have been out of town for three weeks, I come home to my DSL network. Inbound mail is fine, but when I go to send mail it says I am not connected and pops up my dailup as if I need to dailup to send mail. when I cancel that, it cancels the sending of the email so i can no longer send my email via the network. I seached all the preferences for mail and could not find any setting to tell mozilla I am on the network and don't need to dail up. Please help. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. send mail vial dailup SMTP 2. hang up 3. try to send mail on the network via network SMTP Actual Results: Tries to force me to dailup which I don't want to do. Thats why I pay for DSL. Expected Results: 1. Automatically recognize that I am networked and don't force dailup. just send the mail. 2. Have a default connection setting that i can change whether I am on dailup or networked.
