To add a new account to Mozilla Thunderbird

If at any time you don't have the information necessary to complete a step, contact your system administrator or SupraNet for help.

  • Open Mozilla Thunderbird.
  • Open the Account Settings (Tools > Account Settings). Each email or newsgroup account that has already been configured is listed on the left side of the Account Settings dialog. These accounts correspond to the top-level folders displayed in the "All Folders" list. (If this is the first account you are configuring, you won't see any accounts)
  • Click the Account Actions button and select Add Mail Account.
  • Enter your email account details and press Continue. Thunderbird will try to determine your account settings based on the domain portion of your email address (that is, the portion after the "@" symbol). Press the Stop button to abort the lookup, then edit the server names, port and IMAP/POP, and then press Manual Configuration to manually set up the the account.




For Incoming mail,

  • Define the Incoming protocol to be IMAP
  • Enter the server hostnmae
  • Enter a port of 143
  • Select none for SSL
  • Select 'Normal Password' as the Authentication method
  • Enter the full email address as the username

For Outgoing mail,

  • Define the Outgoing protocol to be SMTP
  • Enter the server hostname
  • Enter a port of 587
  • Enter the full email address as the username

Click Done
That's it! If you have any questions, or the configuration didn't go quite as planned, contact your network administrator or SupraNet for help.
