Set up my email on Thunderbird

Learn how to set up your Professional Email account on Mozilla Thunderbird. Then you can send and receive business emails from Outlook on your Mac or Windows computer. (The images below may not match yours depending on your version of Thunderbird.)

When you install Thunderbird, it will attempt to detect your port and server settings. If it's successful, Thunderbird sets up your email with just a few clicks. If it cannot, you must enter them manually.

  1. Open Thunderbird. (Learn more or install Thunderbird)
  2. In the Accounts section, under Create a new account: click Email.
    Click email under Create a new account
  3. Click Skip this and use my existing email.

    Note: If Thunderbird does not detect your port and server settings, you need to manually configure them. Help me with manual configuration.
