I can't remember why I have this, but my incoming server is the same
as Darren's.  But my outgoing is:

Server name:
Port:  587
User name:  Same as my login name, but without the ""
Authentication method:  Normal password
Connection security:  STARTTLS

CL...are you getting the problem when you check e-mail or when you
send e-mail?  Knowing which might help figure out which server's
settings (incoming or outgoing) is acting up.

And I don't know if there is some keyring that is helping Thunderbird
store passwords.  Maybe that is the one causing you problems?

I previously had problems with Kubuntu's keyring and it kept asking me
for the password.  I can't remember the details, but I think it
happened with either the web browser or depended on
which program I opened first after logging in.  (Though, to be frank,
I only vaguely remember my problem.  I think I erased my KDE
configuration directory out of frustrating...starting from scratch
helped.  :-) )
