This guide will show step-by-step instructions for setting up E-mail on Mozilla Thunderbird for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Due to differences in the operating systems, some screens and steps might vary. However, the steps should be the same across platforms. Thunderbird is a free E-mail client and can be downloaded from mozilla.com/thunderbird.

Enter your entire email address as the User Name for both incoming and outgoing.
