How to Sync Thunderbird with current Email

Postby Incentive I.C on Mon Nov 05, 2012 7:45 pm

Does anybody have an idea on how i can get me email Synced with Thunderbird. I seem to be telling it I have a current Email but every time I put in the information it comes back invalid and gives me the most complicated manual input I have ever seen. Heck i do not even know if sync is the right word. It could be that I am trying to import the email. I just want it to communicate with my current email so I can see it on Thunderbird.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!
The best way to learn from it is break it OS's (is there a plural for OS?) included.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

sync - thunderbird should automatically sync between the servers and thunderbird - that is download any mail on/in the email account.
Passwords should have been setup when you setup the email account in thunderbird.

You cant see any downloaded email? click on the "date" column - to sort by date latest will appear on the top or bottom of the list.

By servers you mean my email right?

yeah that were it gets a bit confusing. Ever time I try to set up the email account in Thunderbird (Put in password,name,email name) it comes back invalid every time and sometimes it wants me to set up an account in Thunderbird for stuff like blogs and news and makes me set up another Thunderbird account for different features of the mail client. Why do I have to make so many accounts in Thunderbird?

Cheers
