Then one fine day, when you send a message we get error message "Connecting to smtp server failed" and send fails. Again I created a new profile and everything is ok with the new profile Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: Occurs randomly Actual Results: could not connect to mail server Expected Results: should have connected and mail sent
We have seen this problem as well. It seems to occur on Windows NT 4.0 machines and some Windows 2000 machines. In our cases, the e-mail actually gets sent, BUT, the error message still comes up: "Sending of message failed. The message could not be sent becuase connecting to the SMTP server < server > failed. The server may be available or is refusing SMTP connections. Please verify that your SMTP server setting is correct and try again, or else contact your systems administrator" We also use encrypted, authenticated SMTP connections and our mail server is a Sun One IMS 5.2 server. Almost all of our Netscape 7.1/Mozilla 1.4 installations work, except the two or three that "don't...they send but the error message comes up"
ozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20030925 I have experienced something similar. After spending a signifcant amount of time wokring with my ISP/web host. I cant connect to the smtp server in either Mozilla 1.4, 1.5, or thunderbird .3RC2. I can successfully connect using Outlook Express and Outlook. I am running a Windows 2000 box with SP5.

Check all SMTP server settings through Edit/Mail&News Account Settings/Outgoing Server(SMTP)/Advanced button/Edit button. Is it defined as you expected? Is it same as you defined? Are there any character string of 127.0.0.1 or localhost in server name?
In the "Advanced Outgoing Sever (SMTP) Settings" dialogue box, NO matter which SMTP server is set default, always the first/top SMTP server in the list is used. Fail as a different ISP is used.
Why no response for almost one year? Is this INVALID bug? If yes, close this bug.
