I posted a problem with my Onetel emails in October 2020. The problem I have with my three accounts is I am unable to send emails from them. In account settings I have changed the smtp to mail.onetel.net.uk and mail.onetel.com also smtp.talktalk.net without success. Even changed the port from 465 to 587 but they all time out. Ideas anyone?

Sorry I had omitted that I am trying to send emails from my Onetel accounts via Thunderbird. I have set all my accounts with smtp.talktalk.net with the port at 587 and Outgoing Connection Security as STARTTLS and that works.

Are you still a TalkTalk Consumer (home broadband) customer? If not your mailbox may get restricted to webmail only access unless you've subscribed to TalkTalk Mail Plus to retain the use of a TalkTalk Mail email address across your email devices and email client software.
If you have a mail message from TalkTalk about restriction or deletion of your TalkTalk managed email address and mailbox then add your TalkTalk mailbox address to a TalkTalk Consumer home broadband or MailPlus MyAccount to avoid restriction to webmail only access after 60 days and deletion after 180 days. (see below *)
Select here: Sign in to TalkTalk Mail
Enter your full onetel email address and password, select Sign in.
This is to check the password is working for the TalkTalk Mail webmail sign in.
If your password is deemed weak then you might be restricted to webmail only until your password is upgraded. Please review your password strength and follow the advice here: Upgrade your legacy mail password to upgrade your email password.
Then to get the email client settings updated you'll need to use TalkTalk email settings that are the same for all mailboxes managed by TalkTalk Consumer including the onetel domain: Help page: Email settings - IMAP & POP3
On updating the email software incoming, outgoing and some advanced server settings, you'll possibly be asked to accept a new certificate (yes, accept) and to enter the email password so have the current password ready. Tick to save the password before entering it.
