Mozilla & Gecko clones "The Thunderbird email client doesn't get half the attention that its big brother, the Firefox browser, gets, but the Mozilla Foundation has finally gotten around to lavishing some love on it, and the first beta of version 2 is now out. If you think there's nothing more that can added to an email client - except for the fabled seek-out-and-destroy-spam option - prepare to be pleasantly surprised. The new Thunderbird comes with numerous new features."

is it just me, or would anyone else like to have the smtp settings in the account configuration, not separated?

I know its just a minor thing, but i hate to set up a new account and then figure for a few seconds why my mail isn't getting sent...

For Account read POP3/IMAP account - you can set up many. Also, you can specify many SMTP servers. You can specify which SMTP server to use for which Account. You can specify a default SMTP server. Maybe you would be helped by specifying a working default SMTP server? I think your mail will then be sent after setting up a new Account. I think the way this is set up in Thunderbird works well.
