What have you set for the SMTP server?

Do you get any error messages?

Hi Peter (squirecorps),

Yes Thinderbird does work with PlusNet. I use it sometimes.

I assume you have set up an 'account'.

Have you set up the correct SMTP server. Undet tools -- Account Settings -- Outgoing Server (SMTP) make sure that Server Name is set to relay.plus.net and port should be 25. Use Name and Password should not be ticked and Use Secure Connection should be set to No.

Trust that is of some help.

Go to

Tools
Accounts
Outgoing Server
UNCHECK the box Username and Password.

These are NOT needed to send emails via Thunderbird..
