Inability to send certain messages via smtp to Yahoo mail


(Thunderbird :: General, defect)

Windows XP
Not set


(Not tracked)



(Reporter: khp123, Unassigned)


User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20080311 Firefox/
Build Identifier:

I have 4 accounts, all, khp123, khp456, khp642 & khp789, I can set the default SMTP account to one of these, but then I am unable to send a message from any of the other 3 accounts. It would would be appropriate if the SMTP system was switched to a specific account when operating in that account.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. You may need a Yahoo mail system to reproduce. I have set "" for incoming mail, and this works OK. The outgoing is set at "", and I can set it in my system so that when I go to and look at the setting, the default user name may not be for, and the message will not transmit

Expected Results:  
When I switch from one account to another, the default SMTP user name should switch so that Yahoo can recognize the source of the required transmission.

I think I have explained the problem. For further information, you can call 530-589-7820, or email to Thanks

Bugzilla is not for support questions and this is not a bug because it's already possible, only a little bit hidden. Please use or ask in the Forums if you need additional help.

You have to select the used smtp server in each pop3/imap account and the smtp servers itself can be configured/created in the Outgoing Server configuration.
