I had to change the password on my verizon email account. Now verizon

Preferences -> Security -> Saved Passwords displays the passwords for my

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.

Greetings,



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
Passwords

Then select the smtp account and hit remove.

Then;

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.



Gary R.
