I have tried this with multiple servers (SMTP servers, at least five different accounts and domains) - happens everytime.

Do you have a virus checker installed, which might be intercepting the smtp send attempt?

I am using Linux and don't have any virus checker.

I have made update of many packages at the same time as Thunderbird updated itself. I will check if there is some interference - maybe with sendmail, if TB uses it?

Just uninstalled sendmail 8.13.7 and installed 8.13.4 instead and sending of attachments works now.
