so you want to set up thunderbird to access a DIFFERENT email service?

or are you trying to figure out how to set it up to use hotmail server PROPERLY?


specifics about what service you are trying to connect to will get us a bit further in helping.

To use different e-mail service go to Tools > Account Settings and modify values according to your account specifics.

Hotmail doesn't work well with other email clients, as Microsoft just want you to use their services. There is a way around it though: http://lifehacker.com/software/email-apps/check-hotmail-using-thunderbird-034583.php

i never knew that bout hotmail since i dont use any of that MSN or hotmail stuff anymore since MS made it all part of the Live Care thing. It all used to be separate accounts if I am not mistaken.
