Adding Email in Mozilla Thunderbird for Google Standard Apps Account

Setting up Mozilla Thunderbird 3

If you’re using an older version of Thunderbird, we recommend upgrading to the latest version.

People who want to access Gmail from Thunderbird should each do the following:

  1. Make sure you’ve enabled IMAP in your Gmail account.
  2. Open Thunderbird.
  3. Click the Tools menu, and select Account Settings.
  4. On the bottom left, click Account Actions, and select Add Mail Account.
  5. Enter your Name, Email Address, and Password.
  6. Click Continue.

Note: Thunderbird will automatically try to determine the appropriate IMAP connection settings for your account. However, this feature doesn’t work for Google Apps accounts. Instead, click Stop to stop the automatic configuration. (Alternatively, you can wait for this message to appear: Thunderbird failed to find the settings for your email account.)

  1. Click the Manual Setup button.
  2. From the left navigation bar, click Server Settings, and fill in the following information:
    • Server Name: imap.gmail.com
    • Port: 993
    • User Name: your full email address [username@reseller.inoxh.com]
    • Connection security: SSL/TLS
  3. From the left navigation bar, click Outgoing Server (SMTP).
  4. Select the default server, and click Edit.
  5. Fill in the following information, and click OK.
    • Server Name: smtp.gmail.com
    • Port: 465
    • Connection security: SSL/TLS
    • Authentication method: Normal password
    • User Name: your full email address [username@reseller.inoxh.com]
  6. Click OK to complete the set up process.
  7. Check our recommended client settings, and adjust your client’s settings as needed.

That’s it! You should now be able to send and receive Gmail messages from Thunderbird.
