Right now, I am using it at without any security and in port 119.
For a few days in this machine, I thought that I was missing the server
name, and I could not (and also still CANNOT) find a Mozilla page
explaining how to connect Mozilla NNTP support server. I tried
news.mozilla.org and support.mozilla.org, both with the same behaviour
Searched and searched, did not find, and I gave up. After that, I was
writing a thread elsewhere to ask which were the correct settings, and
then I tested changing the second option for this account in TB:
"Safety settings" -> changed from "SSL/TLS" to "None"
And it worked! I threw away the thread idea.
Does that mean I cannot use secure connections in news.mozilla.org ?
I am using Thunderbird 45.8.0. How do I test the secure connections it
I don't think Mozilla's usenet server ever had a SSL connection. I know
the previous server for Netscape did. I am not sure if that is still active.
Allah's Apostle said, "Once while a prophet amongst the prophets was
taking a rest underneath a tree, an ant bit him. He, therefore, ordered
that his luggage be taken away from underneath that tree and then
ordered that the dwelling place of the ants should be set on fire. Allah
sent him a revelation: 'Wouldn't it have been sufficient to burn a
single ant (that bit you)?'" --Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Book 54,
