I have 2 problems with Thunderbird


1. Every now and then it forgets my password. It comes up with a little box for me to enter it but it doesnt always recognize it


2. SMTP issues

I get one of 2 problems relating to SMTP.

I get a box saying "Add security exception. You are about to override how Thunderbird identifies this site......."

or Send message error. Sending of the message failed. This message could not be sent using SMTP...


In both cases I fail to find a solution and give up. I end up removing the account and setting it up from scratch. Happily all my messages reappear.


Ive learned to live with these problems but a frien is having the same problems as me and she is far less computer savvy


I think what we both need is an alternative email client. One that is far less complicated

I've tried Outlook and opera and wasnt too impressed


Back in the day I used to use Outlook Express where all tasks were easy  and all worked well.

Is there not something as good as that?


I would like to keep working with Thunderbird if there was some way of stopping those annoying SMTP errors which I only get with Thunderbird, never with gmx webmail. Same for my friend who uses gmail


Thanks for any advice
