Source- How to Fix SMTP “cannot send email” Errors in Thunderbird.

Are you a small business owner using the Mozilla Thunderbird mail client?

For most people, the mozilla thunderbird has been the perfect solution to their mailing problems because of its dynamic features and the fact that it simplified the account set up process. Just recently I got emails, text messages and calls from many of my clients complaining about their not been able to send emails using their thunderbird mail client. While I was trying to figure out the problem I decided to upgrade to version 3.1 like most of you reading this mail. Then and there my problems began! :mrgreen:

For over 24hours I could not send mails and like every normal person I got frustrated I decided reading up all the things and information I could lay my hands on, on the internet, yet none worked. I tried every solution proffered on the forums I visited but they just would not work. It took me donkey minutes to read almost all the materials on the Thunderbird knowledge base, I read and tried, restarted my system and Thunderbird numerous times but the “mail would not just send.” I spoke to some of our engineers about it, they tried all they could but nothing seemed to solve the problem.

I resulted to sending one of my clients an email via my company’s yahoo mail and it looked so unprofessional. My desperation to resolve the problem created in me  the kind of determination that drove Cristiano Ronaldo to stardom. 😆

In the next few steps I would explain how to solve this problem(s). If you have this problem, prepare to smile, if you do not and you use Thunderbird, I would advise that you keep this GREAT resource somewhere safe.

How To fix the SMTP cannot send email problem

Some sample error messages:
*Sending of message failed.
An error occurred sending mail: Unable to authenticate to SMTP server
Sending of message failed.
*The message could not be sent because the connection to SMTP server timed out. Try again or contact your network administrator.
According to Thunderbird,
An error occurred sending mail: Unable to authenticate to SMTP server ...

…when they send email.

This is caused by a bug in Thunderbird 2.0, where SMTP configuration settings that were previously ignored are now being used. Specifically, in Thunderbird 2, if an SMTP server did not require authentication, data in the user name / password fields was ignored. In Thunderbird 3, however, data in the user name and password fields is sent whether or not the server requires the data, causing some servers to reject the connection.

Our Solution

1. Try sending another mail to be sure you still have the problem. If you do not, that is another miracle I just performed. 😆  but if you still do, just to step 2 and let’s ride.

2. There are two sides to it and you just have to choose at this juncture where you belong.

a: You are willing to delete or let go of any message in your inbox for at least one of your least used emails. (for those who do not have sensitive information in their inbox. (Shorter steps)

b: You have sensitive information and cannot risk deleting them. (A bit longer)

3. If you chose “a” above simply click Tools~Account Settings~Account actions~Delete the mail account.

Then jump to step……………………9

If you chose “b” above follow this next steps.

4. Log in into your hosting control Panel (CP), if you do not have access to your control panel you can ask you web hostsupport team to simply help you create a new email and send you the configuration details once you get that jump to step…………………………9

If your hosting account cannot have more than one email jump to step ………12 and try the troubleshooting.

5.In your CP click on Email accounts. This is where you normally create new email accounts for your domain.

6.Create a new account and don’t forget your password as you would need it later. You can use the same password as the other mail(s) not sending out emails.

7. Access your email configuration detail (manual settings)

8. Launch your Mozilla Thunderbird mail client.

9.Go to tools at the top bar (click) ~Account settings~ Scroll down and click Account Actions~ Add mail account~

Put in you name, email address just created(or deleted in step 3 above) and password~ create.

10. Here is the tricky part, Thunderbird tries to configure your mail account for you so it looks for the best incoming and outgoing server route possible.

Watch closely to make sure that both incoming and outgoing settings show a green ball to the left side, if not cancel and restart….Go back to step 9. This is because Thunderbird will choose best settings for you.

11. Once this is done, try sending an email with the new email address and bang ! If you have any problems at this stage repeat the steps above.

12. To configure the other emails not working. Click Tools~Account settings~On the left hand side, scroll down till you see Outgoing Server (SMTP) then click~ Set the newly created account as default (Set Default)

Click to Edit the SMTP details of the new email

Note the configuration for the new email is different from the existing ones

There are two most important things here.

a: Default Port : changes from 25 to 465 or vice versa.

b: Connection security sometimes changes from STARTTLS to SSL/TLS

13. Note the two main details without forgetting your username. Click on any email not working~Edit and make sure you change both the port number to 465 and  the connection security to the appropriate one.

14. Test to check that your email now works fine! Bingo!!

What is Pay-as-you-go Reseller Hosting model?


Before you Proceed, Our reseller program is free to try (Free trial) till the 31st of March, which means you do not even need your card details at all to open an account. Once you sign up, you will be given 2 websites instantly, the first is a main website like this (, while the other is a reseller website like this (

Pay-as-you-go Reseller Hosting model

The biggest advantage of reselling hosting through us is that you do not have to make any bulk purchases in advance – you simply pay as you go. The below document describes how our Reseller program allows you to make higher profit margins, and sell more hosting packages.
Brief Description

  • Pay-as-you-go Hosting: We allow you to resell web hosting services without having to pre-purchase any hosting package. As and when your Customers buy a hosting package through your website, our system creates that package and bills you for it. You only pay us after you get paid, and that too only for the exact package your customer has purchased.
  • Bulk Packages: Other competitors offer what are known as bulk hosting packages. In a bulk hosting package you typically have to buy a large hosting package in advance and break it up into smaller hosting packages and resell the same to your customers.
  • Offer Hosting across platforms and locations: In our pay-as-you-go hosting model, you can offer hosting across platforms and locations. You can sell Linux, Windows, Email-only and other forms of Hosting. You can sell hosting in various datacenter locations. You can offer hosting across various categories – standard and premium. All this without any pre-purchase. As opposed to this, in a bulk hosting model, if you wanted to offer hosting in Linux & Windows across multiple datacenters and categories, you would have to purchase multiple bulk packages.


  • Discounted pricing – Your pricing automatically reduces as and when you purchase any of our products and services. With our hosting plans your costs reduce faster since they are tied in to ALL products you buy from us. The way our discounts and plans are structured, you actually end up paying lesser than you would for bulk packages.
  • Never buy something you don’t need – In Bulk packages you are buying something you do not need today, and paying for it in advance. This results in blocking a certain amount of cash from your side that you can better utilize elsewhere in your marketing efforts. With our Pay-as-you-go plans you buy exactly as much as you need and are only billed for that and nothing more.
  • Never have to maintain Unutilized Inventory – Incase of Bulk Packages you have to maintain unutilized inventory which further increases your cost of hosting. For eg lets say you buy a bulk hosting package which can host 25 websites. Lets say that you sell 3 websites every month. You will be able to fully utilize this bulk package only by the 8th month. Until then, every month you would be paying for excess inventory which you do not need. Across 8 months your cost for that package more than doubles because your utilization starts at 10% and reaches 100% only after 8 months. Additionally, if at anytime, a large customer of yours decides not to renew his packages and moves them to another provider, you may again get stuck with unutilized excess inventory which you have to continue paying for. In our Pay-as-you-go model, you never have to purchase and maintain excess inventory.
  • Never have to block your Cash – In Bulk Hosting you block your cash in advance. In our Pay-as-you-go model, you pay us only after your Customer has already paid you. You don’t have to invest any money from your side in advance.
  • 30 day Money back guarantee per package – In our Pay-as-you-go plans, we provide you with a 30 day money back guarantee for EVERY single hosting account that your customer purchases. On the other hand, in Bulk Hosting, once you have purchased a package you are stuck with it, whether your customers choose to continue or not. Lets say you buy a 100 sites bulk package. If 10 of your Customers leave you, you are still stuck with the cost of the inventory and have no option of obtaining a credit back. Additionally, if a customer wants to try your hosting service for sometime, you have to bear an upfront recurring cost for the same. In our Pay-as-you-go model, you get a full refund incase your Customer decides to delete a package. This allows you to offer trial packages to your Customers and increase your sales.
  • No worries about Inventory forecasting and planning – In our Pay-as-you-go Hosting reseller program, you never have to worry about inventory forecasting and planning. In Bulk Hosting, you have to forecast your sales in advance in order to ensure that you never run out of inventory.
  • Address short-term spikes – Lets say a Customer of yours wants to buy 30 hosting packages for 3 months. With a Bulk Hosting package you do not have the option of increasing your package size for a short period and then downgrading it again. You may have to turn down such Customers. With our hosting reseller program, each package is treated individually. Your Customers decide the duration of the plan and you are charged only for that duration.
  • No limits on the size or number of accounts – In Bulk hosting – if you have 1000 MB divided amongst 10 Customers and one of them suddenly requires to upgrade their diskspace, you may not be in a position to deliver. Or if a customer of yours wants to add 5 more websites you may not have enough space to provide the same. You will have to purchase a new Bulk Package to service those needs. This maybe a time consuming, manual process which could result in loss of sales. Additionally, each time you exhaust your 1000 MB bulk package you have to buy another 1000 MB bulk package, even if you have only one new order. This results in you having to buy excess inventory that you cannot fully consume. With our Pay-as-you-go model, each package is treated as a separate order and your Customers are free to upgrade or downgrade anytime. Your Customers are also free to add packages at any time. You do not have to buy more than you need.
  • Obtain advantages of price reductions instantly – In the hosting industry prices are continuously dropping. Think of what you were paying for hosting a year ago and think of what you pay right now. In a Bulk Hosting package you are locked in to a contract for a certain duration. Any changes in pricing that take place in the industry will not reduce your prices. This will in turn affect your ability to be able to offer lower prices to your Customers. In our Pay-as-you-go model you are not locked into the pricing. Any price reductions are immediately applied from the very next package your customers buy. This allows you to remain competitive.
  • Fully Automated Provisioning – In a Bulk package, you have to manually create each account. In our Pay-as-you-go model, each package is automatically provisioned by our system, the moment your Customer makes a purchase. This reduces your manpower costs and at the same time results in better service for your Customers, who do not have to wait for their hosting account to get activated.
  • Single point management control – In our hosting reseller plans we allow your Customers to manage all their services through a single control panel as opposed to, your Customers having to login to separate control panels to manage each of their services.
