I had to change the password on my verizon email account. Now verizon
email refuses to accept email I send to one of my accounts because the
password Icedove is sending is wrong. How do I go about fixing this.
Preferences -> Security -> Saved Passwords displays the passwords for my
other account and my incoming password for the troublesome account but
none for outgoing.
You can try to:
1/ Add a new smtp outgoing account with the new password.
2/ Edit the current settings for the account that handles the old
password to force a password reset.
Thank you all for your help. The suggestion I liked best was to use the
addon editor. Alas it doesn't want to work with my 3.0.11 (Squeeze)
version of Icedove. So, to sum up for posterity:
Edit -> Preferences -> Security -> Passwords -> Saved
Then select the smtp account and hit remove.
Edit -> Account Settings
Select the account in question.
Where it says "Outgoing Server", from the drop down' select the one not
marked as default. ( I'm not sure why this is needed but things didn't
work with the default set.)
Select "Server Settings" for the account in question.
Turn OFF "Use secure authentication. (Here again I don't know
why this is needed but didn't work with it on.)
Now download your email and assign the new password when asked.
I hope this helps someone else.
