I'm trying to set up my email account through Thunderbird from an existing account. I know the address and password but not the user name. How can I find that?

Posted

Another computer has the email account set up through Thunderbird but we can't figure out how to find the user name. If there's a way of finding this that would solve our problems as well.

Thanks!
