hi everyone, i cant set up my pop&smtp server's. POP Server Address:, SMTP Server Address:, I get that "please enter a valid hostname" message over and over again . I looked through all the documents on the site about thunderbird and went through some of the pages on the forums here and still havent found anything to help me out. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.
