Can't Send Email After Automatic Thunderbird Update To Version 88.0b2 (32-bit)

According to the update history found in Thunderbird version 88.0b2 (32-bit), I received an automatic program update on March 26, 2021. Immediately after the update, I could no longer send emails. I can RECEIVE emails, but nothing will SEND. Messages just sit there with the green "sending" bar. I have let it sit there for two hours at a time to see what happens, and the message goes nowhere. Yesterday, I spent an hour with a very savvy tech support person from EarthLink to make sure the problem was not with the EarthLink server. He took remote control of my computer and looked through all of the Thunderbird SMTP settings (which I had already checked and rechecked multiple times), and he also checked everything on the server end. I am able to send messages perfectly through EarthLink's Webmail portal, and he verified that my email address is not being blocked by EarthLink. The conclusion is that the problem is with Thunderbird, not EarthLink's server, especially since it happened after a Thunderbird update.

I shut off both my antivirus software (Avira version 1.1.46.16549) and my firewall (standard with Windows 10 Home), but it did not resolve the problem. At some point while I was trying different things, the SMTP password disappeared from my "saved logins," and I can't find a way to put it back. (I've attached several screenshots of the settings.)

I also tried to remove the remaining password for the POP setting in order to prompt Thunderbird to request a password after restarting. I entered my password upon request, but it did not resolve the problem. I'm out of ideas as to how to fix this. I have important business and personal emails to reply to, and I've lost a week trying to figure out this conundrum. Thank you in advance for any and all suggestions on next steps.

The following is information from the "Troubleshooting" section in Thunderbird:

Does it work if you revert to the old method of sending, by switching two preferences in Config. editor? See the pink text at the beginning of the release notes:

That worked! Thank you SO much! I was close in that I found the config editor, but I wouldn't have gotten the rest of the way on my own because I had no idea what to look for in the config editor. Lol. Thanks again!

IWhere do I find "Config editor"?

In Thunderbird, go to Tools > Options > General > and at the very bottom of this section, you'll find a button labeled "Config Editor."

Hi, I don't have this path:- Tools > Options so can't find Config Editor.

I have now identified that this inability to 'Send Email' only when BCC to my own email address is entered or selected in the account settings.

I don't have that path either...Tools > Options is not on my version either. I also took out the BCC to myself and can send emails. Thanks Jonathon!

Options is under Tools on the Menu Bar; press Alt if the bar is hidden. Or, click the 3-bar menu icon at the upper right, Options.

I think the newest version calls it "Preferences" instead of "Options," but you will find it in the same location.

Thanks, this fixed the problem of not being able to send an email with BCC active, so it is a bug in the current release.
