#283 closed defect (fixed)

changing smtp while new mail is open fails

Reported by:… Owned by: rene
Version: 0.6.8 Keywords: smtp


I created a new email. Tried to send. The chosen smtp didn't react. I went to thunderbird settings and choose an other smtp server. Then I resend the mail. An error occurs:

Virtual Identity Error: Can't change Identity before Sending. Please report at

I saved the email and had to restart thunderbird to get it send anyhow.

thanks for your report. completely right - virtual identity reads the list of SMTPs once and if you change it later, it will not react the right way. The error-message is gone with the patch included in [b269e70f0949], but the problem persists. Will check if there is a fix possible, till then you have to save / restart / reopen if SMTP does not work. Or choose the option to show an SMTP-selection field in your frontend, than you can easily change SMTP while sending.

Nice regards, Rene

this should now be finally fixed with [4bb7671bbd313] which will be part of 0.6.9

Thanks for pointing to the problem, nice regards, Rene
