4. On the Server Information page choose the type of account you have, either POP or IMAP. If you're not sure which to choose, consult your Internet Service Provider.

5. Type your incoming mail server address in the Incoming Server field. Example:

NOTE: You may also be asked for your outgoing mail server; usually this is the same server. If you don't know what your incoming or outgoing mail servers are, contact your Internet Service Provider.

Click Next.

6. On the User Names page type the user name for your email provider in the Incoming User Name field. If you don't know the user name for your account, then contact your Internet Service Provider.

7. On the Account Name page enter a name for your account in the Account Name field. Example: Home Account

9. Click on your email address under the Folders window and then click Get Mail from above.

10. The Password Required dialogue box will immediately come up. Type the password to your email account in the empty field. Click OK.

NOTE: You can also set Thunderbird to remember your password by selecting the Use Password Manager check box. Don't save the password until you're sure it's typed in correctly because it's hard to change once you've saved it.
