Use manual setup to add a POP or IMAP email account in Thunderbird for Windows. You can use these instructions to add a POP or IMAP account to Thunderbird.

Step 1: Open the Account Settings: In the Thunderbird menu bar, click the Tools menu and select Account Settings, or click the Application menu button New Fx Menu and select Options and Account Settings from the sub-menu.

Step 2: At the bottom of the left pane, click the Account Actions button and select Add Mail Account.

Step 3: Enter your email account details and press Continue. Thunderbird will try to determine your account settings based on the domain portion of your email address (that is, the portion after the “@” symbol).

Step 4: Press Manual Configuration and edit the server names, ports and IMAP/POP to manually set up the the account. Click Re-test to test your manual settings; there should be a quick response indicating the settings are valid. If not, press the Stop button to abort the lookup, then edit the server names, ports and IMAP/POP and click Re-test again.

Step 5: Save.


If you are unable to connect, double-check the account settings. 99% of the time the issue is a simple typo or entering a wrong setting.
