Mozilla Thunderbird setup

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)

I am asked to provide a password to access my email. It came up suddenly.Previously I never had to use a password.I am the only PC user.Helmut


Mozilla Thunserbird is an email client. Honestly, I've stopped using emal clients since about ten years, when gmail was launched so I have no isea how and why Mozilla Thunserbird is using passwords. Strange that a password should appear when you haven't define one. Sometime problems like this happen because of some prank; someone get access to your computer and inputs a passwoer. OK, if not the case, excuse me, just a wild guess.

Here you have some infor about Mozilla Thunderbird pasmaster password

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/master-password

In any case, if you can't solve this password issue, my advice is, access your email throug webmail. Btw, if you have gmail, hotmail or yahoo, you can manage your mal way better directly throug the web then for an email client..
Once you've got all your mail, uninstall Mozilla Thunserbird and reinstall it, so you shiould remove this passwoerd.

When you forgot your account name from a Gmail, hotmail or Yahoo account you never can login to you account. When you have a mail account from your phone or internet provider, with a POP3 and STMP server and you even don't know the server names, you can't login.
When you have the correct account name and password, just goto the login site from the mail provider in the browser. Fill in account name and password and click login. That should do the trick.
For the POP3 and STMP server mail, you first should setup the server settings for both POP3 and STMP in a mail program like Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird

How do you drop and drag from gmail to a flash drive


The Gmail Webmail interface does not allow users to download or copy emails as individual files using a browser, but you can achieve this by downloading your emails to an email client such as Outlook or Thunderbird. An email client can be setup to view all of your e-mails when configured with IMAP settings so you can then copy individual messages to a folder or thumbdrive. I'd recommend Thunderbird as it is free and works easily for want you want to do.

I cannot see if my email sent. Im not sure what happened


Hi Ann,

Before anyone is able to really dig deep and help figure out the issue we'll need you to post more information.

At minimum you should provide us with:
What email client you are using, such as Lotus Notes, Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, etc.
If this is work or personal email? If work, is it Exchange or other? If personal, what service: Gmail, Hotmail, YMail, etc.?

My first question to you would be have you located and looked under the Sent Items folder in your mailbox? If not, that is the key and you'll need to find that folder. Again, I can't get detailed until I know more about your setup.

Let us know more so we can help. Thanks.

Do you know a free software to backup locally my Gmail account?


Step 1. Go to the Gmail web interface and click the Settings link at the top right corner of the page. Look for the "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" tab and click the link.
Step 2. Now you need to enable either POP or IMAP. For most people, POP will work just fine and it's the simpler of the two. Just select the "Enable POP for all mail" option. You'll also notice that you can control what Gmail does when your desktop client connects under the "When messages are accessed with POP" setting. Choose "keep Gmail's copy in the Inbox" since we're just using POP for backup purposes.
Step 3. Now startup Thunderbird, enter your username (the bit before @gmail.com in your e-mail address) and Google password. Thunderbird will begin downloading your e-mail, creating a local backup. There's no need to mess with Thunderbird's settings or since you're just doing this for backup purposes.

Mail disappears after it has downloaded in Mozilla Thunderbird


You probably have setup a POP access on your Thunderbird to download your mails from your webmail. POP will download all of your message from your wembail to your Thunderbird and will place all of these message in your Thunderbird's inbox. Regardless if those message where sorted in different folders in your webmail.

In order for your mails to stay on your webmail you need to enable a setting in your Thunderbird that will leave a copy of your messages in your webmail. You can follow the steps below to check this setting:

On your Thunderbird

1.) Click Tools
2.) Click Account Settings
3.) Click Server Settings underneath the account that you setup.
4.) Verify that 'Leave messages on server' is checked in the server settings section

I hope this one will help.

Can't receive emails using Thunderbird 2 on Mac running 10.3?


Confirm with your ISP the settings needed for Thunderbird, such as POP3 for incoming and outgoing mail along with your username to access your emails. If you are using Thunderbird to get Hotmail/Yahoo/Gmail emails then check with their support pages for further help.
