To help me sort out an occasional SMTP time out problem, I need help filling in these SMTP settings for use with Thunderbird email:


1:  Server name. I assume mail.twc.com is still correct? (I come from the old twc branch of Spectrum)

2:  Port. I assume 587 is still correct?

3:  Connection security: Do I use:  (a) None, or (b) STARTTLS, or (c) (SSL/TLS?

4:  Authentication method: Do I use: (a) No authorization, or (b) Normal password, or (c) Encrypted password?

5: I know to use my full email.


Good advice would be much appreciated!

    3.  STARTTLS

    4.  No authentication

    5.  Not used because of 4.
