  • Select checkbox to remember password

NOTE: by default Thunderbird will tend to try to configure as an IMAP mail account, so it will look for those server settings. If you want an imap mail account:

  • Click on 'Continue'

Configuration settings will try to be located.

  • Click on 'Done' to create the account.

If you want a POP mail account then do the following:

  • click on 'Configure Manually'.
  • Protocol -Incoming select the 'POP3' option
  • change all settings to the pop settings used by relevant server
  • Click on 'Retest' and then click on 'Done' to create the account.

When account is created check all the Account Settings to check all is set up as you require before downloading any mail.
