User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.5a (20040113) For Example, if my POP3 server's domain name is "aaaa.com" and my email Account is "email@example.com" , Thunderbird cannot get any mail message and display wrong(?) error. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Add Account -> email account 2.your name: anything email: firstname.lastname@example.org , Click Next 3.POP3, incoming server: aaaa.com, Click Next 4.incoming user name: email@example.com, Click Next 5.Account name : TEST ACCOUNT, Click Next 6.Click "Get Mail" icon 7.input password Actual Results: Alert: Sending of password did not succeed. Mail server aaaa.com responded: server does not accept proxy authentication command Expected Results: get new mail messages Everything works fine with Thunderbird 0.2 & before It also works perfectly with Microsoft Outlook Express. When I tested the account using telnet command, I could login and read mail. I think it's not a server or account problem & it may not related with proxy authentication.
Summary: Cannot use e-mail address with different domain name from POP3 server's → Cannot use e-mail address with different domain name from POP3 server's
The problem is Thunderbird does not select the appropriate email account when you select a new "from" address from the drop down. For example. I have email account A and email account B. If I select the "From" address of email account B, it will attempt to connect to server A, which of course will fail!
theop/hawk - do you know if this is still a bug in Thunderbird 1.0?
Can not confirm in TB 1.0 build 20041206. I have e-mail addresse that end in sbcglobal.net and they both use the server pop.sbcglobal.yahoo.com. I don't know if this is exactly the same but I have been able to send and receive using both. Also, you steps to reproduce only deal with receive the mail which, I wouldn't think, would have to do with the e-mail addresses domain name. It would have to do with your user name. It sounds like a server issue, not TB. I would check with your ISP to make sure you are using the correct account name. This issue works for me, since none of my e-mail address domains are the same as the server.
