Suddenly I cannot send emails using Thunderbird. I have tried changing my Outgoing Server smtp.xs4all.nl in various ways, but now I am completely confused. It's possible too that incoming messages are not arriving too, since nothing has arrived today. An additional complication is that I am now in France instead of Holland, but in the past that was never a problem.
Furthermore, I have a VPN called SurfShark, which I pay for but have not found useful for as far as I know. Generally, I set it to Paris, but disconnecting it doesn't seem to make any difference. I have Bitdefender virus but I cannot find how to temporarily disable it. The same applies to firewalls. This is driving me mad.
The 'Send Message Error' is
- Sending of the message failed. Unable to authenticate Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.xs4all.nl. Please check the password and verify the 'Authentication method' in 'Account Settiongs | Outgoing server (SMTP)'.
I have tried to modify the the SMTP server settings in various and I am not sure now whether anything is correct. I also reinstalled the latest version of Thunderbird, but that didn't change anything. The SMTP Server settings are presently as follows:
Description: Vic ****
Server Name: smtp.xs4all.nl
Connection security: SSL/TLS
Authentication method: Normal password
User Name: v**.@xs4all.nl
I don't know if it's really necessary to disguise my Description and User Name with asterisks: let me know. The 'Email me' square below does not respond (visibly) when ticked in FireFox.
How do I get out of this mess please?
