    Default ssl and secure authentication in thunderbird

    ssl is working in thunderbird fine. When I click on the secure authentication though thunderbird says it can't do that, but is the username and password still going over ssl when ssl is active?

    This is how my Thunderbird is configured and it works fine. Use SSL and secure auth.

    I get an error from thunderbird that the server does not support secure auth.

    Do you have it enabled in the admin UI?

    Under the MTA tab, TLS is checked. Is that what you mean. I couldn't see any other setting for this.

    What is you just take off secure and use just SSL? Does that work?

    I guess. When it is using ssl (ssl mode does work), does that include the username/password auth process? That is, in ssl mode is the auth being done via under the ssl umbrella.

    Yes it's SSL for the entire life cycle of the connection.

    hi KevinH

    Did you do anything on your Zimbra to make it work with Secure Authentication in Thunderbird?

    Did you modify postfix main.cf's smtp_auth_enable ?

    Or do you mean running saslzmauthdctl start ???


    thanks

    There are no modifications in our config files. It's working like this out-of-the-box. Make sure saslauthd is running and check for errors in /var/log/zimbra.log
