Ooh … Begitu! I see, I see …


Setelah kelayapan di internet, cari-cari info dari sana-sini dan bongkar pasang tips (terutama programming), akhirnya baru sadar … ternyata begitu caranya … [all about tricks and tips I have found during my work as programmer.]

Thunderbird proxy setting??

this is to answer a question from baliazura who has posted this question few days ago in my Date Time simple tips for Firebird store procedure page. this is what he asked:

I use computer and my place work use proxy so I have problem to load thunderbird or my network protect with firewall. any one can help me?

well, I got some information from here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/RSS_proxy_(Thunderbird)

I have never tried using proxy setting so … perhaps you want to give it a try.

It says that Thunderbird does not honor Firefox’s http proxy settings, nor does it provide a GUI to set http proxy settings. But there is an extension exists which provides access to the advanced configuration options where the Proxy Server can be configured. The extension is AboutConfig perhaps you want to check it out.

Once installed, open the AboutConfig extension at “Tools -> about:config” and then follow these steps:

  • Enter “proxy” in the Filter box.
  • Double click “network.proxy.http” and enter the name or address of your proxy server.
  • Double click “network.proxy.http.port” and enter the port your proxy server uses for http.
  • Double click “network.proxy.type” and change the value to 1.

For Automatic proxy configuration URL:

  • Enter “proxy” in the Filter box.
  • Double click “network.proxy.autoconfig_url” and enter the URL. The port number must be in the URL.
  • Double click “network.proxy.type” and change the value to 2.

I give the credit to mozillaZine which has provided this information at their site. you might want to check more information there. hope this helps.

    You don’t need to install any extension, On thunderbird 2, you can click on tools, options, advanced, general tab, then click on the config button.
