i am in the process of switching from windows to linux suse 9.1 (finally) and to make it less of a jump into darkness i am still running both versions on my laptop. For this reason i installed mozilla in both OSs as my mail-program, so that i can have an up-to-date account in whatever OS i am currently working in.
the only problem is that i didn't manage to really use it yet, because my university is using a proxy-firewall which requires a proxy authentication - namely an id and password. a proxy url for http_proxy and a part are not enough, and unfortunately mozilla does not offer an id and password setting in its preferences. (i have the same problem with kopete) .
i have been playing around with this for quite a while and would be happy if somebody could tell me how to solve this problem.
thanks for helping a motivated newbie
