Domains4less Thunderbird E-Mail setup
Posted by Tim Botherway on 11 December 2018 09:40 AM

1. When you open up Thunderbird go to the settings via a click on Mozilla options (three horizontal lines) at the top right, then select Options >> Account Settings

 

 

2. In the Account Settings window, near the bottom left, click on ‘Account Actions’ and in the drop-down select ‘Add Mail Account...

 

3. Here you enter your e-mail address details and then proceed.

4. Thunderbird will then give back some settings it tries to configure itself, these are usually wrong so select ‘Manual config

 

5. Here you can set the correct details. By default, Thunderbird will put in the wrong details, specifically the username, server hostname, ports, SSL, and Authentication, so pretty much everything.

 

 

Note: Make sure the user-name is the full email address and not shortened.

 

When you’ve set the right settings you want, select ‘Done’ and the email will now be set-up.
