Verizon/Frontier
 
Ever since Verizon sold(?) to Frontier I have had to set my Thunderbird 3.16 to imap. server. On windows pop3 works but on Suse 11.2 imap is the only way it will login. Does anyone know what caused this?

Your question is incomplete at best, incoherent at worst.

Either explain what was sold or provide a link. This statement gives us no useful background to try to help you. For everyone who reads this, here's a link to my quick Google search:

It appears that you have suffered an involuntary change in ISPs, & w/ that change this problem began. That info. is crucial to figuring out your problem. In troubleshooting it is almost always necessary to answer the question: "What changed immediately before the problem started?" You haven't done this.

I've never heard of a setting called "imap. server", is this something new or a typo. I generally use web interfaces for my e-mail, so this might be my ignorance showing.

Which "Winders"?

I assume you mean imap is the only way T'bird will log in on Suse 11.2 -- Have you tried Kmail or another e-mail client, even an older ver. of T'bird? This would help determine where the problem is: T'bird or Suse.

Have you called your ISP's help desk? I know that most ISPs are spectacularly ignorant & unhelpful when it comes Linux, but did you at least try?

In how much detail have you compared the 4 (before & after, x2 OSs) T'bird configs?

Double posting
I just discovered that this thread is essentially a duplicate of: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...server-832377/
& worse, that I already tried to help you, but you didn't respond w/ the info. I asked for. Pretty rude if you ask me. I am reporting these threads for combining.

Edit: Added color to potentially inflammatory portions in order to lessen their impact; also, to highlight how much of the post is a careful analysis of the OP & the info. necessary to solve the problem. I don't see that the reaction in the next post is justified.

You know, it seems that every time I post here, I get taken apart and insulted for the way I posted than getting any valuable information. If you don't have an answer for my problem, leave me alone. Don't post, jerk-off.
The only, and I mean only, help I have gotten here that actually worked was from "redazz". That's pretty pitiful considering the amount of questions I've sought help with.
I'll go to another forum that is more interested in helping that showing their shining intelligence. FU a**hat, oh, I mean archtoad.
I shouldn't expect anything different from a Texass resident.
