Thunderbird should be set to use Port 587 with TLS (or SSL) and username/password. Note that your username is your full email address in Zimbra. That last might be your problem.
But this is a slightly different topic. We've moved from "how can I get Outlook to (correctly) fail" to "how come Thunderbird is (incorrectly) failing".
Hello I have a problem with this.
I am using Zimbra Server Release 8.0.4.GA.5737.UBUNTU12.64 UBUNTU12_64 FOSS edition.
It works perfect. I can send and recieve email through the built in web mail client. Its running with a ssl certificate and works fine with my domain. The problem that I have is that I am trying to configure my Moodle implementation so that it can send emails through an account of Zimbra (firstname.lastname@example.org). I configured it with a GMail account and it worked fine, but I havent been able to make it work with my Zimbra Server.
Moodle asks for the following data.
smtp server: zmail.credia.hn
smtp security: ssl / tls
smtp user: email@example.com
smtp passwd: mypasswdhere
smtp session limit: 1
newline character: LF / CRLF
If i run the command: zmprov getServer zmail.credia.hn | grep Auth , I get the following:
Both Zimbra and Moodle are running on separate servers with their own public IP's.
