I have an Apache James Server on localhost. I know to configure its smtp, pop3 and imap ports. I set them to 1025,1110, 1043 for now debugging. I have a user user2

I can send mail through

telnet localhost 1025

ehlo localhost

mail from:<user2@localhost>

rcpt to:<user2@localhost>

data

mycontent
.

and i can see the mail through pop3, imap.

But i can not configure thunderbird.

While trying to send mail from user2@localhost to user2@localhost

Sending of message failed.
An error occurred sending mail: SMTP server smtp.localhost is unknown. The server may be incorrectly configured. Please verify that your SMTP server settings are correct and try again.

Try localhost instead of smtp.localhost (except you made an virtual host with smtp, or your host file contains smtp.localhost mapped to 127.0.0.1) –  JohannesM Oct 12 '12 at 8:31
