How set Default vs. specific outgoing server
Hi, I have a few email accounts that are associated with my own web site.
In TB: Tools | Account Settings | Outgoing Server (SMTP)
I have 3 entries: - entry for Default Server (which is the smtp of my local ISP) - entry for email address 1 which gives the mail server address of my web site mail server - entry for email address 2 which gives the mail server address of my web site mail server
NOTE: the outgoing settings (when I select Edit) for account 1 and account 2, seem to be identical. Neither one of them seem to indicate to use the Default Server.
When I send emails for address 1, TB uses the mail server of my web site mail server.
When I send emails for address 2, TB uses the DEFAULT mail server.
Why do they behave differently? I cannot find the setting that determines which is used.
Any help is much appreciated !

I cannot find the setting that determines which is used.
At the top right of the Thunderbird window, click the menu button > Account Settings
In the left pane select the account name - Outgoing Server (SMTP). Select the desired outgoing server from the drop-down menu.
Thank you for your kind reply.
I am still not knowing what to do.
As I explained in my original post, I have been there, and done that.
The entry for account 1 seems to be identical to account 2, but they behave differently when mail is sent.
Is there some setting/selection to accomplish before following your steps?
In Account Settings, look for 'Outgoing Server (SMTP)' at the bottom of the left pane. All your SMTP servers are defined there. Verify their settings.
