thunderbird

I like others find squirrel mail very slow, decided to use your alternative Thundebird only to find that it doesn't recognise Plus,com why recommend when no use. Squirrel mail has deteriorated in the last three months why.

Re: thunderbird

Hi ripit,
If you're having problems setting up Thunderbird there's a guide on how to do it on our website here: http://www.plus.net/support/email/setup/tbird3_setup.shtml
Hope that helps,

I hope you didn't put that for the server name! It's mail.plus.net (or imap.plus.net) for incoming mail, relay.plus.net for outgoing.

Re: thunderbird

I find Thunderbird extremely useful, I have 3 mailboxes (not on Plus Net) and each requires it's own SMTP address, which is specific to that mail box although they are all on the same domain/server. This is not normally the case as one SMTP address works for all mailboxes usually. Another advantage with Thunderbird is it's Lightning Calendar add-on (the most flexible one I've found).
