Lightbulb How to create a new account in Thunderbird

Hello,

The following tutorial will walk you through adding a new email account to Thunderbird. Setup is pretty simple. You will need information from your ISP or website host such as your user name, the server name, and your password.

Open Thunderbird and Click Tools > Account Settings > Add Account.

Put in the name you want to show on outgoing email and your email address

Here you will put in your incoming mail server which you got from your ISP (Internet Service Provider) or website host.

In the part you can probably leave it as is. Depending on your host it's either your username (the part before @ in your email address) or your entire email address. You can generally ignore the outgoing user name part as you will use your default outgoing mail settings.

The account name this is just a nickname for your account that's referenced within thunderbird by default it's the email address. You can leave it as is.

This is just a summary of your settings. Press Finish.

After setting up your mail account press "Get Mail" from your main Thunderbird screen and you will be prompted for the password on your newly created account. You can choose to save it or not.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reply.

Default Re: How to create a new account in Thunderbird

Hello,
I made that exactly as you said. And when I press "Get Mail", it requires an password, and when I write it (I write the password that I used to log in the Email on the webhosting) and it say that it is an incorrect password.
Any ideas ?

Are you sure your typing it correctly and are using the correct mail servers?

Try using hte full email address as the username ex: user@domain.com sometimes it's also written as user+domain.com try it both ways and see if it works.

Now because I download the new version of Thunderbird, it won't even make account, it say: "Thunderbird failed to find the settings for your email account."
I change the username into the email address and it won't work, I tried to change the incoming and outgoing server but no luck.
