Email Client Tutorial: Mozilla Thunderbird

Download Mozilla Thunderbird »

 

  1. Open Thunderbird
  2. Click Local Folders (left)
  3. Click Create New Account > Email (right)
  4. On the pop-up, select the button on the bottom left that reads Skip this and use my existing email.
  5. Enter your details in the next screen

  6. Click Continue and Thunderbird will attempt to find your email settings. It will likely fail because you're on a PCI Compliant server and settings are more strict than standard.
  7. On the next screen, click Manual Config:
  8. Enter your email details:
  • YOUR NAME: Should have been copied from the previous screen, but you can change it here.
  • EMAIL ADDRESS: Should have been copied from the previous screen, but you can change it here.
  • PASSWORD: Should have been copied from the previous screen, but you can change it here.
  • CHECK Remember Password unless you'd like to type it in each time you send/receive email.
  • Select IMAP (remote folders)

  1. Click Re-Test to verify, then click Done

 

Test Your Settings

 

Try sending a test email and make sure it is successful.  If it fails to send, double-check your outgoing settings:

 


  1. Right-click your Email Address in the left-hand pane in Thunderbird and select Settings

  2. Click Outgoing Server (SMTP)

  3. If there is more than one entry, click the one you just set up. It will be named your email address. Double-check the settings below, it should match the window above. If it doesn't, click Edit and change what you need so it matches (Port 465, Normal password, SSL/TLS, etc.)

  4. Click OK to save and test again

 

 

Log in to a different email account, or ask someone else, to send you an email to ensure you're receiving emails as you should. 

 

 

If you have trouble, please contact our tech support team to test your email settings.
