Your help will be much appreciated.

In Thunderbird Account settings :-

Account Name  yourname@youraddress.plus.com

 

Your Name :  What you want others to see

Email Address : same as Account Name

Reply-to Address : nothing here

Organisation : nothing here

 

Outgoing Server (SMTP):

Same as Account Name and followed by - relay.plus.net(Default)

[ PRESS OK BUTTON ]

 

Server Settings

 

Server Name : imap.plus.net   Port: 993

User Name:  same as account name

 

Connection Security: SSL/TLS

Authentication method: Normal Password

 

[ PRESS OK BUTTON]

 

No more changes in that section, move to Outgoing Server (SMTP)

 

Box on left of [ ADD ] button should show

Account Name followed by - relay.plus.net(Default)

Details of selected server:  should show

 

Description: <not specified>

Server Name: relay.plus.net

Port: 587

User Name : same as Account name

Authentication method: Normal password

Connection Security: STARTTLS

 

Press the [ OK ] button

 

The above is showing in my Thunderbird and I can send to and receive from Plusnet.

Regards..

Thank you for posting the Thunderbird set-up procedure for everyone to use.

My downloaded Thunderbird is version: 91.3.0 and hopefully it works.
