Thunderbird Email Setup

Solution

Set up my email using Thunderbird

Learn how to set up your Workspace Email account on Mozilla Thunderbird. Then you can send and receive business emails from Outlook on your Mac or Windows computer. (The images below may not match yours depending on your version of Thunderbird.)

When you install Thunderbird, it will attempt to detect your port and server settings. If it's successful, Thunderbird sets up your email with just a few clicks. If it can't, you must enter them manually.
