    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 ( 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:
    smtp security: ssl / tls
    smtp user:
    smtp passwd: mypasswdhere
    smtp session limit: 1
    no-reply adress:
    charset: UTF8
    newline character: LF / CRLF

    If i run the command: zmprov getServer | grep Auth , I get the following:

    zimbraMtaAuthEnabled: TRUE
    zimbraMtaAuthTarget: TRUE
    zimbraMtaSaslAuthEnable: yes
    zimbraMtaTlsAuthOnly: TRUE
    zimbraShareNotificationMtaAuthRequired: FALSE

    Both Zimbra and Moodle are running on separate servers with their own public IP's.
