    Question Thunderbird, sending mail with sendmail localy....

    Hello, I am wondering if I can configure thunderbird to send and recieve mail from localhost, I tried setting it up but I get "Cannot Connect to server", I have my firewall setup properly, and I setup sendmail.

    Sendmail alone is not sufficient. You need a service for thunderbird to connect to and fetch mail from. Sendmail only does SMTP, for sending out mail. Dovecot is a good choice for handling POP and IMAP.
