email faulty

Unable to send or receive emails since I changed to optus webmail.  I daresay I have set it up incorrectly so I hope there is a gentle soul out there that might hold me by the hand and guide me through the process.  I just deleted my Thunderbird mail as someone got into it and I receive literally 240+ Return emails Unable to etc...

Over to those who know.

Re: email faulty

Not sure I understand the question Rod. Webmail requires no setup as you simply login with your email address and password and start using it.

Re: email faulty

Hello yeldard,

you are quite correct.  This does (did) work for me until I tried using another mail program, which was absolutely terrible.  I came back to Thunderbird mail and could not send anything.  Incoming mail was no problem.

I hunted around on 'Google' and found the answer there. It is a terminal program as shown below.

 

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/thunderbird-stable; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade -y

Then restart Thunderbird and .... Bingo all good again.

 

Thank you for your input, it was greatfully received.

 

Rod.
