Email Accounts In ThunderBird (45.7.1)


To add your email account to Thunderbird, first you need all your email account settings. If you do not have these settings, please email requesting them. Please note that we can only send passwords to the admin contact we have on our system. 

Step 1.

When you first launch Thunderbird, you will be greeted to the below screen;

 Click on ‘View settings for this account’.

(If you already have an account set-up on Thunderbird, you may not see this screen. Instead, right click on the left hand side and go to ‘Settings’; 

Step 2.

On the Account Settings pop-up screen, click on ‘Account Actions’ in the bottom left and then go to  ‘add Mail Account…’; 

Step 3.

 You now need to enter in your name, email address and email password. This is the password that we have issued you. 

 Once you click Continue, this will try and automatically guess the rest of the settings. You want to click ‘Manual Config’ instead; 

Step 4.

 Select all the settings shown in the below screenshot;

 Make sure you enter in your hostname and username. The hostname is ‘mail.yourdomainame’ for example,  and the username will be your email address, for example

Click on 'Done' when completed.

Step 5.

If you receive a warning about unencrypted settings, please click on ‘I understand the risks’ and click done.

 Your account should now work. If it does not, please contact our support team on 01622 200045
