Version: 115.1.0 (64-bit) (tried with 114 as well.)
Set up an account that's based in outlook.live.com. Receiving emails just fine. Getting all folders.
Note: it's annoying AF that you have to restart TBird every time you make a smtp change!
Can't send emails. Authentication methods tried:
|normal password||Login to server smtp.office365.com with username sami@... failed|
|Encryption password||The Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.office365.com does not seem to support encrypted passwords. If you just set up the account, try changing the 'Authentication method' in 'Account settings | Outgoing server (SMTP)' to 'Normal password'.|
|oAuth2||Login to server smtp.office365.com with username sami@... failed. NOTE: I see no evidence that it tried to get a token.|
in my case,
Thunderbird A migrated to current upgrade with some hassles with Microsoft concerning access. In that instance Tools-AccoutSettings SMTP Oauth2
Thunderbird B migrated to current upgrade with persistent failures. I removed saved login/password entries. No success. I then modified Tools-AccoutSettings SMTP Normal Password Success was had.
Both A & B function with the different setting between them. The specific accounts are all @outlook.com
Tried all that. No success.
In debugger, looking at the network traffic:
When I use oAuth2, I can see the request for the token being made, a valid response is received. Then nothing.
When I use normal password: I see no requests going out.
WHEN will TBIRD catch up with the rest of the industry and create a permanent fix for authentication using exchange server settings? This needs to be solved - period. I'm a small business owner and my web/email hosting has completely stopped using pop and smtp server settings. So after using Tbird for 25 years, I'm scre*ed. TBIRD needs to be the one to change - stop passing the buck. Using the browser and microsoft email programs is a time-wasting nightmare. PLEASE FIX THIS!!
Thunderbird can't issue a fix for something that Microsoft
broke disabled by default:
