Thunderbird/Mailwasher problem

  TommyRed 15:16 12 Nov 2004

Yesterday installed Thunderbird all seemed ok but noticed today mail is still going to OE which is no longer my default e-mail, any ideas why? TIA TR

What mail program have you specified in Mailwasher? Under options, you can set TBird.

  TommyRed 20:04 12 Nov 2004

Mozilla Thunderbird is set as the mail program under 'options'. TR

And when you process mail, what gets launched?

When I 'process mail' Thunderbird opens but the mail goes to OE. TR

Have you deleted the account you originally had set up in OE?

Also, try Opera. It works there.

  TommyRed 20:34 12 Nov 2004

No haven't deleted the account as there was no mention of OE on it. Quite happy with Thunderbird, don't really want to change it if I can avoid it. Cheers TR

The mail can only go to OE if it is (a) running and (b) set up to send / receive mail when opened.

Try disabling it.

How do I disable it? have unchecked 'send/receive mail when opened'. TR

Open OE

Open Tools menu

Select Accounts

There will be a default mail account with your ISP. Select it by left clicking on it to highlight. Click on Remove button to the right.
