    [SOLVED] Can't send Mail


    Hello everyone My name is Dani I'm running Dream Linux and I set up mu mail in Thunderbird and as I did so I made a typing error in my user id and that server is being used as default because it is my ISP one but since the error is there I can't send any mail, so I have tried to fix this by removing that account and then re adding it again, but it didn't fix the problem because even after I did this it still tries to log in with my id with the error in it I have also tried to edit the server and the account but nothing seems to fix it it keeps the error in it and I can't send emails through my ISP account does anyone know a way to fix it or delete all my info and reset it up again so that I can send mail again?
    Any help will be gratefully appreciatred! Thanks Dani

    Welcome to the forums, Dani!

    You can try this:

    Make sure Thunderbird is closed
    Rename the /home/your_username/.thunderbird folder to .thunderbirdOLD
    Start Thunderbird so that the profile folder can rebuild itself
    Reconfigure to Thunderbird to your liking
    Recover any important files from the renamed folder and move them to the new folder
    Hope that works for you.
