[config] Add bigpond
The following domains seem to belong to them: bigpond.com 889 bigpond.com.au 41 telstra.com 18 bigpond.net 2 bigpond.net.au 336 (MX extmail.bpbb.bigpond.com)
so what happens now?
Mark, we'll need a test account to test the config. If you don't have any nor your friends, can you call the ISP and ask for an account?
As for the config: - Of you're basing this on a webpage with instructions, please post the URL - Please check whether SSL works (even if not official by ISP) - username for incoming is missing - config file is in 1.0 format, we need 1.1, see <https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Thunderbird/Autoconfiguration>
I don't have a test account as such but have a basically unused one of mine - how long do you need the credentials for?
Mark works for Momo so he can do the testing with his credentials for us. I'll walk him trhu if needed .
I went to ispdb.momo.com and found http://ispdb.mozillamessaging.com/details/97 - which is correct. Exported as xml then hand-edited the new domains and made one or 2 other changes (eg, 'username'->%USERNAME%. Info url from that report seems to not have been exported for some reason, but is correct. I probably need to catch ludo on #maildev to finish this off.

ludo, the other listed problems are worse. if I have to convert, generally I do it manually myself. no big deal.

I need Ludo's help to move this forward...

mark, the points 1-3 in my comment 3 are the worst, esp. username and SSL. don't worry about the config file format or anything, just tell me the settings.
(In reply to comment #3) > As for the config: > - Of you're basing this on a webpage with instructions, please post the URL http://www.bigpond.com/internet/help/email/ is the generic email help page, with a link to http://bigpond.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/bigpond.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=672 for client-agnostic instructions. > - Please check whether SSL works (even if not official by ISP) SSL works for POP3. SSL and STARTTLS do not work for SMTP. No IMAP is offered. > - username for incoming is missing The username appears to work as either the full email address, or just the 'username' portion (ie, the portion before the '@') Please let me know if you need anything else.
Mark, could you please test it?
excuse my ignorance and my lack of google foo - how do I go about testing it?
Mark, copy it to <thunderbird-install-dir>/isp/bigpond.com.xml , assuming your email address is @bigpond.com , then set up that account in TB. The config should appear immediately, no network requests.
(then of course test whether both mail fetch and mail send works.)
Those instructions don't seem to work for me. I created it as bigpond.net.xml in the isp directory and attempted to configure a bigpond.net account, but it seemed to ignore that file and reaches out to the online DB before attempting guessed server names. I'm using TB "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20100802 Lightning/1.0b2 Thunderbird/3.1.2". I note the config file has <clientConfig version="1.1"> even though you mentioned it was V2 format, but that may well be expected. FWIW, the 'isp' directory on my box is at "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Thunderbird\isp" (64bit Vista) and the files in the ISP directory are now: 1,036 bigpond.net.xml 1,611 rss.rdf 365 SpamAssassin.sfd 277 SpamPal.sfd
So, that indicates to me that there's something wrong with the XML. Could you set the mail.wizard.logging.console pref to "All", re-run the test, and then check the error console to see what's happening? Thanks, Blake.
Not having much luck :( I set the mail.wizard.logging.console option to the string "All", but the error console, with "All" selected, is failing to show any messages at all before it starts looking for the online ispdb records.
Ben, Blake did any of you test loading the isp file on windows ? (I know I didn't)
Sorry. I had forgotten to replace "None" with "plain" socket type (coming from from the ispdb server). New config attached, this loads for me.
