MYOB email preferences

Just been working on a PC where MYOB couldn't email out the POs, invoices, etc. Turned out that the Outlook Express email account settings had been disabled but Outlook had not been selected as the preferred email program. Solution was to select Outlook (and disable Express) in the Outlook>Tools>Options>Other preferences.

There appears to be no way to direct MYOB to use a specific email programme - not that it would necessarily be a feature one would ever need.

Using Mozilla Thunderbird - changing password

In Mozilla Thunderbird the passwords account setting is dreadfully difficult to find.

To change a password you saved for an account, under Tools, then Options, click Advanced. Click Manage Stored Passwords. Highlight the account you want to change and click Remove.

Outgoing SMTP server management is also difficult - expecially if you host two websites on the same server as we do. The reason is that there is no way to assign an account name so as to be able to distinguish between smtp.xxx.com and smpt.xxx.com which can lead to some guesswork in picking !
