Thunderbird and Avast Pro probby...
« on: October 21, 2004, 03:24:05 AM »
Hi, I'm lost. :D  I followed the instructions in forum and sig, but to no avail. Maybe if I post all my settings we can find the incorrect one.

To start, here is the error message:

"Sending of username did not succeed. Mail server 127.0.0.1 responded : no POP server defined. Use avast! Mail Protection Wizard to configure it."

Okay, I did that after closing Thunderbird, no go.


                                               -Original Settings-
Account Settings-
Account Name: semiller@rogers.com


Server Settings-
Server Type: POP Mail Server
Server Name: pop.slnt.phub.net.cable.rogers.com  Port: 110  Default: 110
User Name: semiller


Outgoing Server (SMTP) Settings-
Server Name: smtp.slnt.phub.net.cable.rogers.com  Port:25  Default:25



                                               -NEW Settings-

Server Settings:-
Server Type: POP Mail Server
Server Name: 127.0.0.1  Port: 110  Default: 110
User Name: semiller

Outgoing Server (SMTP) Settings-
Server Name: 127.0.0.1  Port:25  Default:25

Attached is a pic of Outgoing Server Settings, we should be able to add more than 1 pic by the way. ;-)  I wish I could send the pic for each setting. LOL

I might add I am using a NAT router and XP Home, just in case this makes any difference.  Thanks for reading this far... any help will be greatly appreciated.

I think you need to make some changes in those changes.

Okay, so I DO NOT use 127.0.0.1 like the posts say for outgoing server name?
Umm... I have to use the full semiller@rogers.com in Original Settings for Thunderbird to work so ....

Ya lost me..LOL

That's not what I said. I simple corrected one part of your settings. The other settings still have to reflect 127.0.0.1 in order for avast to intercept the mail and check it for viruses.

under Server Settings your user name should be:

semiller#pop.slnt.phub.net.cable.rogers.com       port 110

For outgoing server:     semiller   for user name        port 25

127.0.0.1 for both for Server Name

does your server require that you use a secure connection?

Heres how you need to set it up...   and if your server requires secure authentication you'll need to check mark that box...

Pop3 (Inbound):

Server name: 127.0.0.1
User name: YourUserName#YourPopServerName
Port: 110

Smtp (Outbound):
Server name: 127.0.0.1
User name: YourUserName          Port: 25

after making the changes  (double check them please for typos)  :)  be sure to close thunderbird, then reopen it before you test it

 start MAIL PROTECTION WIZARD, click NEXT, choose AUTOMATICALLY PROTECT ALL MY ACCOUNTS and again click NEXT.

Enter your default SMTP and POP3 server names and click NEXT.

I will re do the auto protect accounts but first, I tried the manual way.  What server should I have used?  The old addy or the new 127.0.0.1 like in pic?
