Help!! In the past few days thunderbird has stopped sending emails from my ntlworld email addresses, I get the following error message:

'An error occurred sending mail: The mail server sent an incorrect greeting: Cannot establish SSL with SMTP server (then what looks like an ip address) SSL_connect error 10054.'

then i get another error message:

'Sending of message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to SMTP server smtp.ntlworld.com was lost in the middle of the transaction. Try again or contact your network administrator.'

i dont recall a recent update and have not touched settings etc.

please help!!

You are not alone. There seems to be a problem with Virgin servers in some areas. There have been a few threads about tnis.
