Mozilla Thunderbird 1 - Alternate Port - Setup Guide
- First you need to make sure the email address(es) you will be sending from have been authorised for your account in our Control Panel .
- These instructions assume your email account has already been setup and is collecting email correctly.
- Take a note of any settings you change.
- Only change the items specified - you should not need to change either your email address, POP3 server, POP3 username / password.
- We have instructions for both default SMTP port and alternate SMTP port configurations - alternate port is generally used if your ISP blocks the normal port 25 SMTP access (as many do these days!).
- Load Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0
- From the main screen open the 'Tools' menu and then select 'Account Settings...'
- Select 'Outgoing Server (SMTP)'
- Change the SMTP server name to the SMTP server we supplied with your signup email
- Change the port number to: 2525
- Click on 'Use name and password'
- Enter the AuthSMTP username (it will ask for your password when you first go to send a message)
- IMPORTANT: 'authsmtp.username' is an example - if your AuthSMTP username was 'ab12345' enter it as that and *not* as 'authsmtp.ab12345'
- Make sure 'Use secure connection' is set to: No
- You should now be back to the main Thunderbird 1.0 screen
- Close Thunderbird 1.0 and then reload
- Check you are online then test to ensure you can send mail correctly
