User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040219 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040219 It is useless configure multiple outgoing SMTP servers (Edit->Mail&Newsgroup account settings->Outgoing Server (SMTP)->Advanced) because eventhough you set one as default server it does not make any difference because Mozilla Mail uses the first on the list every time. This bug has been there for a long time and it is annoying when plugging my laptop into different networks - I always have to rewrite the server name. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set multiple outgoing SMTP servers so that the first server address on the list (the upmost one) is invalid 2. Send email and try to set other SMTP servers as the default server (Edit->Mail&Newsgroup account settings->Outgoing Server (SMTP)->Advanced) 3. Every time Mozilla tries to send the email through the invalid server
The default outgoing server is used when the account is configured to use it. Does Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings / Account / Server Settings / Advanced show a specific server or "Always use default server"?
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.
But as I wrote, the important thing is what's selected in "Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings / Account / Server Settings / Advanced".
