Cannot Send with Thunderbird

I have been using Cox email for over 40 years and most of that time I have used Thunderbird as my email program.

Cox just switched to enhanced security server settings and I have changed both incoming (POP) and outgoing (SMTP) settings according to instructions.

I now cannot send email from Thunderbird. I just get the message to enter new password and when I do, iget the message that

Login to server smtp.cox.failed.

Incoming mail is fine.

  • False Alarm! I contacted Cox support a second time and they now tell me that their outgoing server has gone down and they don't know when it will be up again.

    I guess this question is now resolved.
