Posted by Noble M on 03 April 2014 05:05 PM

Setting up your email on Mozilla Thunderbird is super easy and will not take you more than 5 minutes. So let's do it:

  1. If you are setting up Mozilla Thunderbird for the first time, skip the initial wizard

  2. Click on Tools Menu

  3. Click on Account Settings

    Mozilla Thunderbird
  4. Click on Account Actions on bottom right

  5. Click on Add Mail Account

    Mozilla Thunderbird
  6. Enter your Name, Email address, Password and click on Continue

    Mozilla Thunderbird
  7. Choose the configuration (POP3 or IMAP). We suggest using POP3. It keeps a copy of your email on your computer so that you can view it even if you are offline

  8. Click on the button Manual config if Thunderbird is not able to determine the settings

    Mozilla Thunderbird
  9. Select Incoming as POP3 and enter Server hostname as pop.yourdomain.com (If you want to use IMAP settings, select IMAP and enter Server hostname as ‘imap.yourdomain.com’)

    Note:
    If you have a Linux Hosting package, Incoming mail server will be mail.yourdomain.com
    If you have a Windows Hosting package, Incoming mail server will be yourdomain.com
  1. Select Outgoing as SMTP and enter Server hostname as smtp.yourdomain.com

    Note:
    If you have a Linux Hosting package, Outgoing mail server will be mail.yourdomain.com

    If you have a Windows Hosting package, Outgoing mail server will be yourdomain.com
  1. Set the Incoming SSL to None

  2. Set the Outgoing SSL to STARTTLS 

  3. Set the Authentication to Normal password (For Incoming and Outgoing)

  4. Click on Create Account

    Mozilla Thunderbird
  5. Click on OK

    Mozilla Thunderbird

That’s it. You are all set to use your email account on your Mozilla Thunderbird.
