    SMTP error due to problem with wrong settings (Thu

    For some strange reason when l send an email the wrong SMTP settings are being used, see screenshot. I am baffled as to where these settings are coming from as having check with my ISP l am using the right settings, yet for some odd reason Thunderbird is getting these settings from somewhere else, any help would be appreciated. The correct setting should be mail.onetel.com and NOT mail.onetel.net.uk as shown

    I'm not sure that screenshot shows an incorrect SMTP server name. It might just be the name of your account from the time at which you created it. Check around and see whether you can find it.

    Have you ever used or accidentally set up the 'wrong' server details?
