I find no one addressing this. I think I resolved the failed delivery based on bare line feeds being unacceptable to a server by copying and pasting my TBird email to my word processor, removing all formatting that I suspected to cause a bare line feed w/out a carriage return, pasting it back into a new TBird email & sending it.

Can anyone suggest an email editor for TBird that is easier to work with or a manual on how to format email with TBird?

I often have big fights with TBird to get it to allow my email formatting to look the way I want. I can't tell what the coding in the background is, so it makes editing very difficult and, as I now hypothesize, allows bare line feeds to end up on the email body, which results in this Undeliverable mail notice:

smtp.email-protect.gosecure.net rejected your message to the following email addresses:

example@example.com(this is a fictional email)
The mail client submitted this message with bare line feeds, which cannot be sent via SMTP protocol DATA command and receiving system does not support BDAT.

smtp.email-protect.gosecure.net gave this error:
SMTPSEND.BareLinefeedsAreIllegal; message contains bare linefeeds, which cannot be sent via DATA and receiving system does not support BDAT

Are you composing mail in HTML?

You could try this extension ThunderHTMLedit

Ugh! It doesn't work with 60.x. Is there a version that works with 60.0. I was considering updating to 68.x, but I have a few "killler app" extensions, like Nostalgy, that are necessary for my productive use of TBird.

Thanks. I've long wondered about learning some HTML. It's real now, I guess. This helps a lot.
For now, it seems to allow me to move between my word processor (Word) for drafting & formatting & saving that into HTML for pasting into the TBird HTML tab, instead of completely working in an html view. I see that Nostalgy is supposed to have an update that works with 68.x, but some of the other extensions I have still don't &/or won't.
