Email: How to setup a POP e-mail account in Mozilla Thunderbird
This tutorial assumes you’ve already created your new email account in SiteAdmin or cPanel.
Now let’s learn how to setup that new email account in Thunderbird, so you’ll be able to send/receive emails to/from that new email account from here.
Now you have to enter your Incoming Server (POP) setting, which would have been provided to you in your welcome email. Typically, the Incoming Server (POP) setting is simply mail.yourdomain.com, where ‘yourdomain.com’ is to be replaced with your own domain name.
We’re almost finished! But first let’s go finish configuring our SMTP outgoing mail server.
SMTP authentication means that Thunderbird will login to your mail server even when sending emails (not just receiving), ensuring that you are the only one that can send emails from your account. Most SMTP servers use the same username and password as the incoming (POP3) servers.
That’s it! We’ve successfully setup an email account, and can now start sending and receiving emails to and from that account, from Thunderbird.
This is the end of the tutorial. You now know how to setup an email account in Thunderbird. Remember that you also have to create that email address in your hosting account before it will work.
