74 / 100

Thunderbird can be used as a client for an ATT email account. Thunderbird will download messages from the ATT server and store them on your local system. Similarly, Thunderbird can be used to compose messages which are sent through AT&T’s mail servers.

Settings: Fixed Setup Thunderbird with Att.net

The following are the settings required for setup Thunderbird with Att.net connection.

  • Description = Your Email Address
  • Server Name = mail.bellsouth.net, or use the one in your email address (AT&T has many different domains)
  • Port = 25 or 100 (This was supplied by my ISP/Mail)
  • User Name and Password = Unchecked
  • Connection Security = None

Automatic Account Configuration – ATT Email Setting Thunderbird

Setting up another record with Att Email Settings Thunderbird is simple. You should simply give your client name and secret phrase for your email supplier and your email address. Thunderbird decides association subtleties, (for example, ports, server names, security conventions, and so forth.) by looking into your email supplier in a database that contains association data for all the significant Internet Service Providers (ISPs). In the wake of deciding the supplier of your record (as determined after the “@” image in your email address) Thunderbird can for the most part give the record subtleties.

Note- Your computer must be connected to the Internet for Thunderbird to create your account automatically.

The first occasion when you open Thunderbird in the wake of introducing, you are incited to make a profile. (At this stage close any windows that propose to set up an email administration and continue). Next you will be gotten some information about your email account in the discourse box demonstrated as follows.

The discourse box is likewise shown when you include another email account (utilizing File > New > Existing Mail Account… or by means of the Account Settings). Another approach to add another record is to tap on a current record name (the showed email address). Under the “Records” heading there are two choices: “View settings for this record” and “Set up a record”. Under “Set up a record”, click “Email” to show the discourse box demonstrated as follows.

When you click Continue, Thunderbird will look up the email provider and attempt to determine the server settings.

In the above case, the provider data has been used to fill in the account details and configure the services offered:

  • Incoming mail: IMAP on imap.gmx.net, using Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
  • Outgoing mail: SMTP on mail.gmx.net, using SSL

You have the option to choose either IMAP or POP as your incoming mail protocol. IMAP and POP are the standard protocols for retrieving emails. IMAP, the more modern protocol, allows you to store messages on the mail server and on your local machine at the same time. The POP protocol only allows messages to be stored locally. Email providers may provide access by either the IMAP or POP protocol, or may support both.

If your email server information is not found when you create your account, you must configure your account manually. However, please ask your email provider to submit their ISP connection information.
