Thunderbird SSL/TLS

I have finally managed to set up Thunderbird manually with my new btinternet email account - but had a lot of trouble in spite of all helpful forum advice.

 I found the problem to be the SSL/TLS feature. If I set it (as recommended in the BT advice ) on then I cannot get a connection.

I get the message "Thunderbird could not connect. The connection was refused ."

But if I set security to None the connection works fine.

 

Does this matter ? I can't tell if I am exposed by having the setting at none . And is there anything I can do about it?

Re: Thunderbird SSL/TLS

I too had issues setting up Thunderbird, first with O2 & now with BT having been with O2 for 4 years with the SSL/TLS set to off I have not experienced any problems. So I have not been worried to set the security to off to get BT email to work on Thunderbird.

Re: Thunderbird SSL/TLS

I managed to set up TB with IMAP in an earlier thread on my pc and HTC desire, the search device will take you to the settings.
