I have several email-accounts that I read via Thunderbird (let's call them email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org and so on). When I last set up a new account (email@example.com) and sent the first test message from it, as usual, the following matter came up: TB used my standard outgoing server, and that had the wrong username (firstname.lastname@example.org), as usual when I set up a new account.
This time, be it by clumsiness or due to changes in the GUI in the last update, I happened to change the username in my standard outgoing server (to email@example.com) and saved. I could then send emails from the new account, but not from my old account that uses the standard outgoing server.
I then added a new outgoing server with username firstname.lastname@example.org. Now when I try to send email from email@example.com I get the errormessage that the outgoing server denied access and that I should check my username.
I have a funny feeling that it wants my password actually. But I can't for the life of me find anywhere to type it in. I can see that my other three outgoing servers (amongst them the former standard with the changed username) have entries in saved passwords. The newly created outgoing server doesn't. I can't find a way to add an entry manually.
Is it really a passwordmatter, and how do I solve it?
