Spamihilator Configuration with Thunderbird

On my previous computer, I used Spamihilator - click here to filter out Junk Email with Outlook Express.

Now, on my new Vista beastie, using Mozilla Thunderbird, the configuration is giving me a headache.

The setup wizard crashes, a known fault, and on the website they advise you to manually configure it.

click here

When I tried this, it didn't work, giving me a message saying the username and password was wrong.

Is anyone else experiencing similar problems?

Thanks,

TBird has a built in spam filter...

Which ISP? What are the pop3/smtp server names?

Thunderbird Spam filter is useless. It does not learn and has no whitelist/blacklist facility.

ISP = Plusnet

POP3 = mail.plus.net

SMTP = relay.plus.net

I just tried it with Vista Mail and it seemed to work OK (ISP Virgin) - I had to add a port number as they use the same name for pop3 and smtp server.
Not sure what else you can try - unless you set up Spamhilator and try to telnet to localhost with the info you've put into the username/password area for TBird.

just tried that now.


"Sending the username did not succeed. Mail server responded: undefined is a unsupported domain"

What does this mean?

Tried that but I had a problem

I will use impersonal usernames

username = example

address = [email protected]

POP3 = mail.plus.com

Do I put mail.plus.com&[email protected]
or mail.plus.com&[email protected]
or mail.plus.com&[email protected]
or mail.plus.com&[email protected]
or what?

It says "Mail server 127.0.0.1 (localhost) responded: example.plus.com is an unsupported domain."

But it actually gets the right domain now.

Thanks.
