Thunderbird Email Client & SMTP Issue

Email is still sending fine through Outlook but because it has crappy anti-spam, ive installed the free Thunderbird (latest version) software which is great BUT, im having issues sending email!

I just imported all the settings from outlook and incoming email is fine, i just cant send emailSad Ive compared both account settings on thunderbird & outlook and i cant notice anything different!

Ive tried sending with antivirus (norton) off but it didnt work and with my firewall off (zonealarm) but it didnt work.

I should mention that when i click send, a password request for relay.plus.net appears - i enter my correct password but it just pops up again, like ive entered the wrong password. Ive tried other passwords just incase but its definately the right one i try to useSad

Any help?Sad

Neither a password nor a username is required to send mail via relay.plus.net

In thunderbird:

tools -> account settings -> outgoing server (SMTP) -> (usually relay.plus.net) -> edit -> uncheck "use name and password" and use secure connection should be set to "no"

Are you connected to our network at the time?

You need to be on a Plusnet connection in order to send emails via our relay servers.
