1) Open Mozilla Thinderbird, in the initial dialog screen click Email under “Create new Account” and then in the screen that opens click on “Skip this and use my existing email”.

The 2 options are highlighted in orange in the image.

2) Enter the parameters as in the image and press “Continue“.
3) Thunderbird tries to autoconfigure the account but without succeess, you can interrupt the procedure at any time by pressing “Manual Config” to proceed with the manual configuration of the parameters.

4) At this point Thunderbird allows you to manually specify all the parameters necessary for the account. Complete the configuration of the fields for incoming and outgoing mail. For incoming mail it is necessary to choose whether to have a POP3 or IMAP mailbox, the MailPro Linux solution supports both standards. If you don’t know the difference between IMAP and POP and which protocol is best suited to your needs, please read this article. The image shows the setting for the configuration without encryption, in case of encryption fill the relative parameters.

To finish click “Done“.

5) In the latest versions of Thunerbird, in case of configuration without encryption, the warning of a potential risk on data security appears. The warning can be overcome by selecting “I understand the risks” and then pressing “Done“. This warning does not appear if you configure MailPro Linux with encryption.

 

The configuration is complete.
