Thunderbird Confusion / Multiple Accounts
I have been brave as of late, installed and successfully using Mozilla-Firebird, so thought I would take the next step, and try Mozilla-Thunderbird. Successfully installed Thunderbird, but having considerable issue with the establishment of multiple accounts. It seems Thunderbird defaults to using the same outgoing account settings for all accounts, which really is not "meeting the need of the masses", if you know what I mean. (I have downloaded and installed Thunderbird 0.8)
I have done my homework, and searched the forums for "corrective action"
" You can tell Thunderbird to use more than one identity per mail account. This would be the case where you have a catch-all account for a domain or forward emails from another email address. The instructions below assume that you have Thunderbird 0.7 (or higher).
- Go to Tools -> Account Settings
- Choose the account that you wish to add additional identities to
- Click Manage Identities (The button is on lower right)
- Add the additional identity that you want.
- Repeat as necessary for additional identities
Now, you can select any of the identities when replying to mail or composing a new message."
or ................................ per the Thunderbird mail account wizard :
"Your existing outgoing server (SMTP), "outgoing.fubar.net", will be used. You can modify outgoing servers settings by choosing Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings from the Edit menu"
---------------------THIS, I have been unable to find, hence my frustration.
Please, if you have any experience in sorting out this situation to an acceptable conclusion .... give me a hollar.
Thanks in advance!
