I downloaded Thunderbird email but cant get into it. I donated to Thunderbird and want to use it

Chosen solution

After download and install. Run Thunderbird and it will auto create a default profile name folder Thunderbird will ask you to create a mail account. Help Article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/automatic-account-configuration

If thunderbird cannot access server then check Thunderbird is an allowed program in your Firewall. If creating a Yahoo or Gmail account, imap requires cookies to be enabled. In versions 78* or later:

  • Select 'Menu app icon' > 'Options/Preferences'
  • In 'Options/Preferences' left Pane select 'Privacy & Security'
  • Select checkbox 'Accept cookies from sites'
