[Bug 997913] Re: thunderbird fails to connect to mail server

Thanks for getting back.

The issue could not be resolved in Ubuntu due to an error in the name
resolution (which the author of the service claims to be correct).
Having a DNS server point to two domains under Ubuntu resolves the first
one (which can be any of the two). This was the issue.

A work-around would be to set the smtp server to an IP-Adress (which
makes this solution a little inflexible).

However, due to the overwhelming amount of issues in Ubuntu I decided to
move to Mac. I have not regretted this move as the basics work fine.
