Tbird insists I must turn 'accept cookies' ON in Firefox -- but I did and it IS on.

Posted

Attempting to send email (gmail account) in Thunderbird using Firefox. 'Accept cookies' is ON. Thunderbird insists it's OFF. Nope, it's ON. IMAP enabled. Thunderbird receives all my incoming messages but says I can't send anything out unless I "accept cookies".

IT WORKS!!! It works!!! Thank you, Zenos! You've saved my day... hell, my entire WEEK! I owe you, big time... Just a suggestion: Would it be asking too much for Tbird to mention that 'cookies' means THUNDERBIRD cookies, not the browser's cookies? And include simple directions, like Zenos posted? I wasted four hours and bashed a dent in my desk (with my head) trying to get Firefox cookies to... oh, whatever. I'm going to get drunk.
