User Help for Mozilla Thunderbird
8 posts • Page 1 of 1
I just set up peoplepc and found that both thunderbird and outlook have trouble sending emails through a peoplepc connection.
I have all the settings from peoplepc, my outlook even had the peoplepc settings added automatically. But I can't send.
Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
What is the exact wording of the error message?
What firewall and antivirus are you using?
What Operating System?
What Version of Thunderbird?
What settings do you have in: Tools>Account Settings>Outgoing Server (SMTP) (at the bottom of the list of accounts on the left)>*server*>Edit? DO NOT post your user name, email address or password.
Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: 'john', Server: 'mail.kristelli.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10053, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F
This only happens when I try to email from my old email account. Its my own domain, and it still works on the web interface, but emailing from my domain email through my new peoplepc account, it won't work.
That is an error message from your server, not Thunderbird. I suggest you contact them about it. Otherwise, you could use another SMTP server and see if that works. GMail is good for that.
Another thought, does kristelli.com (or the hosting company) require POP before SMTP? If that's the case, you need to check for mail just prior to sending. Again, this is a server side issue rather than a Thunderbird issue.
I figured it wasn't a thunderbird problem. But I was hoping that someone knew of peoplepc's problems with email. Even with outlook express, it won't let me send email from anything but their email.
Im sure this is an ISP issue. I've been using the email with no problem for years. This started the day I switched to PeoplePC.
I would talk to them. They may have some workarounds. If not, consider switching again.
I have just resolved this issue for myself. The information PeoplePC provides is all correct; just deficient:
Incoming mail server = pop.peoplepc.com
Outgoing mail server = smtpauth.peoplepc.com
Incoming Mail Server Username = MailBoxUsername (For Bill@PeoplePC.com) this would be Bill.
Incoming Mail Server Username = Bill's Password
Outgoing mail server requires authentication = CHECKED
Log on using Secure Password Authentication = UNCHECKED
Outgoing Mail Server Username = IspAccountPrimaryE-Mail ( PrimaryIspEmailName@PeoplePC.com USE THE ENTIRE E-MAIL ADDRESS)
Outgoing Mail Server Password = PrimaryUserPassword (If this account is for a secondary e-mail user account then be sure to check Remember Password) Log on using Secure Password Authentication is unchecked.
In Advanced Settings:
Outgoing mail(SMTP): 587
Incoming mail(POP3): 110
Server requires a secure connection (SSL): UNCHECKED
BTW: If you do not wish to use the "People PC Smart Dialer" and all of the garbage that comes with it, you may simply configure the normal MS Windows Dialer Using the Full Primary Account E-Mail Address as the username and the Primary Password for any PeoplePC DialUp Number in the USA. I hated that “PeoplePC Smart Dialer” so using the primary e-mail address username and password in the Microsoft dialer is what led me to guess the correct answer to this issue. I then uninstalled People PC altogether; just used them like any other normal dialup ISP.
Er, thanks, but I doubt that johnk55 is still worried about it two years later. Locking.
