Yes,SMTP AUTH is set on.

I apologize for not indicating my platform. I use Slackware Linux
13.37, but my gui is Trinity, a KDE 3.5 lookalike. I did discover that
seamonkey  is in /usr/local/bin, but that directory is on the search
path as confirmed by your suggestion of "which www-browser" which
listed the search path.

I also have KDE4 but I doubt if that will be any different. I'll test
it however.

Hello everybody out there,

The following problem is not to solve until now:

I want to use my hotmail-account in Claws Mail: It is like myname at live.de.
hotmail told me to use the following servers:
POP3-Server: pop3.live.com (Port 995)
SMTP Server: smtp.live.com (Port 25)
they also told me to use:
SSL for POP3 and SMTP
SMTP- Authentification
I can get mails but I can not send messages,after about 50 seconds I get the 
message,that the time for the session is over and the message is not send.
I have installed Claws Mail 3.7.9, as OS Lubuntu 11.10
I had Sylpheed before, had the same problems with sylpheed.That?s why I 
changed to Claws. But with the same result.( until now I did not post the 
problem to the sylpheed-mail-list.)
I posted to the Ubuntu-Forums,but they don?t know how to help me.

So, I hope that I can get help here.
I?m new to Linux, not very much experience with computers,until now I worked 
with windows as OS.

Best greatings from Germany,
Knud Nolting

If you try:

telnet smtp.live.com 25

What do you get?

I get:

Another option is to:
1) Keep STARTTLS active
2) Under Advanced choose port 587 under SMTP

Every time I open my address book, the columns are all narrowed up to
about an inch width on the left, truncated the people's names and
(especially) their addresses.  Widening the columns manually is not
remembered between closing and opening the address book. Is there a way
of forcing CM to remember the width of the columns in the address book?

Subtle error. I managed to have seamonkey in two directories:
/usr/local/bin and /usr/bin/.
The search finds /usr/local/bin first. That instance in turn could not
find the support directories. I deleted that instance and now
claws mail uses /usr/bin/seamonkey. Now it works.

Hi,

just went looking for one of many emails I'd sent to a client earlier
today -- should be easy because it should be showing as having an
attachment...

Using threaded mode (lots of messages over the past few days), searching
for that email was hindered because there was no icon.  Once I opened the
various messages, got to the one with the attachment.  Once opened, the
attachment icon appeared.

I've seen this many times; but could never figure out why...  in this
case, it was a message received and forwarded...  however, I don't recall
if I did the Forward from inside the client folder after moving the
incoming message there, or if I moved the forwarded message from the Sent
folder...

Is anyone else experiencing attachment icons that don't show until the
message is opened?

Cheers,
Pierre
