This guide is suitable for Mozilla Thunderbird on Windows-based computers.
What we'll cover:
- Configuring an Internode email account in Mozilla Thunderbird.
If you don't have Thunderbird, you can download the latest version from the Mozilla Thunderbird web site. It is strongly recommended that you use the latest version of Thunderbird.
- Click Email under Create a new account on the main page of Thunderbird.
- Alternatively, click on the menu at the top right of the screen (three parallel horizontal lines), select Options, then Account Settings.
