The slash is definitively wrong.
------------
When I want to add a new mail account to Thunderbird, I call menu:Edit>Account Settings (may be Tools>Account Settings on your system). A dialog pops up with a command button in the bottom-left corner where I choose "Add Mail Account".
Then I am prompted for my display name (Forename Surname or anything), the mail address (name@host.org) and password. This information should be sufficient that Thunderbird negotiates all the other details such as host name and port number with the mail host.

jah, danke, ich weiss dass;-) and removing the slash, which i said i had done, does not fix the problem.

and why the disparity between separate & same authentication? both fail, but same.auth can't even make a network cnxn. same problem in libre office

The issue is unrelated to Open/LibreOffice.

If you want to use Thunderbird follow the video which explains in detail how to install and set up Thunderbird to receive your email hosted on inmotionhosting.com.

Even without Thunderbird you are free to attach your documents to your emails using any other mail client or some webmail in a browser. Simply save your document and point your preferred tool to the file. A mail client like Thunderbird makes it a little bit more convenient because you can send documents via menu File>Send... which will open new email window with the document attached.

sorry for the confusion, i have no trouble sending/receiving email with thunderbird.

what doesn't work is o.o/l.o's mailmerge to send emails, as documented in
https://help.libreoffice.org/7.1/en-US/ ... System=MAC
(same in o.o.)

i've also never gotten logical operations to work in m.m. fields, but u get what u pay for, amirite?-}
