(i like IMAP VS pop since i can keep in Sync and bounce and bounce laptop @ home Desktop @home Server room in the office ; office workstation etc. Microsoft Outlook one may define a smtp server as Default my perticular gripe is with security enabled servers I'd like the option to make more than ONE defult SMTP server (account firstname.lastname@example.org )=(default smtp=smtp.foo.com) (pop/imap=*) (smtp auth=pop/imap auth) outlook can have per account a default but in a pinch you can switch to the sytem Master DEFAULT or one the well over spamed public smtp relay servers. just I hate having to use the idenity mager to select smtp gmail-(user id) etc if it was an option to overide smtp server on account creation I'd just specify thus the smtp server gets added but only single copy but the acount settings are specified as such. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.clean install of thunderbird 2. easily forget you have to make smtp clones of gmail if not using imap on a secured server i/e gmail-yahoo 3.next try to really rush to send an important email and wonder why it rejects then go doooht then see that the idenity manager sets up the acount smtp Actual Results: simply had to set up smtp aliases per acount with user id in them irritating since outlook at work has that option buit in to the account setup wizzard at home was forgetting the ui quirk on thunderbird. Expected Results: wish list can FORCE specific options on smtp per account from the get go. I/e rather handy hell let me add the smtp settings for a secured account in to said account . thus
SYNOPSIS SPECIFY ACOUNT SPECIFIC options for smtp on CREATE account for its rather Eassy to forget the IDENT manager rounte as other email clients you can Specify pop smtp and locl mailserver/Groupware (OUTLOOK) to dump the profile mail and seetings as a backup anyhow it would make it a Tad easier with some email carriers or enhanced security servers. HUSH-MAIL being one of them YAHOO GMAIL
Michael, can you clarify what you're asking for here? Here's two of my best guesses... 1. You want to be able to specify multiple SMTP servers to be used per account you set up so that Thunderbird tries to fail-back to other servers on the list if the first ones don't work. (Bug 52384) 2. You want to be able to create a new SMTP server option on account creation so you don't have to go in and create a new one through the account settings panel. 3. Something else...?
