Although I have been using Thunderbird for a month or two and find it an excellent IE6 replacement I do come across the odd quirk. For example including photos in Doc or as an attachment can be a little frought at times. This NY Eve I compiled a mail with photos. 'Sent it' but had the distinct feeling all was not well- though there we no indications -I looked in the sent box - no sign of a sent mail. The intended recipient has not recieved it either. So where did it go?
To send you have to have your Account setup to send it should work like what I use Netscape as all firefox and Thunderbird are, are derivatives of Netscape they opened mozilla up to open source. click on your account in the mail program. Accounts\view settings for this account\advanced it should give you SMTP and ISP. pop is only for collection of mail
Hi jack. I've been using Thunderbird for a few months now, and the only problem I've had is that when using some contacts from the Address Book it insists on changing name @ isp.com to "name" @ isp.com (spaces added by me to prevent them being treated as email addresses in the posting). I've not yet found the cause but it resulted in the emails being bounced.
Another problem I have yet to deal with is that a friends computer on which I put Thunderbird has lost the contents of Local folders, so it has no Inbox, Unsent messages, Drafts etc. He also has AVG antivirus on the computer, and I understand this behaviour can be caused by AVG quarantining the whole file when an email is infected.
Another annoying feature of Thunderbird is that its handling of messages composed offline isn't as automatic as in OE.
A very useful feature of Thunderbird I've just found is the use of CTRL+ to increase text size and CTRL- to decrease it.
