    I followed all steps of settings but Thunderbird does not send mails to, for example, out. Please help to fix the problem. Thank you.

      If you’re setting up thunderbird to work with localhost, for example a website you’re developing on the a test server (not live on the internet) , you need to set up emails to use on your website (on your test server). e.g.

      You won’t be able to use type emails on the test server as far as I’m aware (or at least I don’t).

      Best wishes
