Cannot verify using Win32 build (2000080808) and internal SMTP server (uw-ipop3d)
Is it possible that this is server-specific? I'm still seeing this behavior in build 20000805 (Win32). I can supply user name and password for smtp.ne.mediaone.net privately to a QA person for verification, but you'll have to promise to forget them immediately after use <g>.
This was fixed on 8/7. You said you were using 8/5 builds. I'm going to go ahead and mark this as fixed. Please try a new M18 candidate build from 8/8 or later....
Yup, it now works for me with build 2000080908, using the SMTP server I mentioned. Moz is great!
