I can retrieve Lycos.co.uk mail, but I cannot send it. This happens not only in Thunderbird, but also in Mozilla Mail, Netscape 6/7 Mail and all other mail clients that use the Gecko engine. The passwords supplied were correct, but it might be because the username you have to use for connecting to Lycos.co.uk Mail is in the format of "email@example.com" instead of just "hartlandcat". Lycos.co.uk Mail works fine in most other email clients. I have managed to get it to work in Outlook Express, Eudora and Foxmail. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set up a Lycos.co.uk Mail account in some form of Gecko-based email client 2. Click Compose (or Reply) to write a new message from that account 3. Press send 4. Enter your password Actual Results: After typing in your password in the dialogue box and pressing OK, the box keeps coming back repeatedly and asking for the password again -- the message does not get sent. Expected Results: The password should have been accepted and the email sent. The theme does not seem to affect this bug.
Maybe adding this to your user.js may help: user_pref("mail.allow_at_sign_in_user_name", true); But that's just a guess, I think it would be helpful to let Thunderbird create a SMTP log (details: http://www.mozilla.org/quality/mailnews/mail-troubleshoot.html#smtp) and post it here.
xref bug 212937. (In reply to comment #1) > Maybe adding this to your user.js may help: > user_pref("mail.allow_at_sign_in_user_name", true); According to bug 245606 comment 4, this (?) preference has been removed. Benjamin Bridgman, are you still having this problem?
