Description

14 years ago
If smtp is configured to use another server's password, and the user logs onto
that server, and then changes that server password, and then sends a message,
smtp will use the old, bad password until the user logs onto the other server
again. This can cause a lockout on an account because of too many logon attempts.

proposed fix

if an smtp logon fails, stop using another server's password for this
thunderbird session - this should cause a reprompt for a password by smtp,
which will get stored in the stmp server, and used for the duration of the
tbird session. The user will also get reprompted for their incoming mail server
password - that seems fine to me.
