Configuring Thunderbird

You can obtain a free download of Thunderbird from the Mozilla website. Follow the instructions on the site for installing Thunderbird.


Configuring Thunderbird

If you've not used Thunderbird before, the Mail Account Setup Wizard should start on its own. To open it manually, go to the Tools menu and click Accounts Settings. In the left pane of the Account Settings dialog box, click Account Actions and then select Add Mail Account.

Enter your name as you want it to appear in the From field in outgoing mail and your email address. Then, click Continue.




Thunderbird will attempt to automatically configure your account settings. This will fail and a message saying "Thunderbird failed to find the settings for your email account" will display. Enter the following settings:

Incoming

IMAP
Hostname del server: mx.serveremail.net
Port: 993
SSL: SSL / TLS
Autenticazione: Normal

POP3

Hostname del server: mx.serveremail.net
Port: 995
SSL: SSL / TLS
Autenticazione: Normal

Outgoing

SMTP

Hostname del server: mx.serveremail.net
Port: 465
SSL: SSL / TLS
Autenticazione: Normal

 



In some case it could be necessary to accept the exception for the certificate.
