Question about Internet & Communication Software
I downloaded Mozilla Thunderbird but I cannot figure out how to set up Thunderbird to access my MS Hotmail and Gmail accounts. Thunderbird Help is no help at all – it doesn’t even address this issue.
1. Shouldn’t I be able to do this through the Thunderbird New Account setup without installing additional software?
2. What should I enter in the Thunderbird New Account setup screens for IMAP, POP, SMTP, and so on?
Google Gmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): smtp.gmail.com
The Gmail SMTP server requires authentication (use the same settings as for the incoming mail server)
The Google Gmail SMTP Server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) on port 465.
GMail uses POP3 over an SSL connection, so make sure your email client supports encrypted SSL connections.
Google Gmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.gmail.com (SSL enabled, port 995)Outgoing Mail Server - use the SMTP mail server address provided by your local ISP or smtp.gmail.com (SSL enabled, port 465)
