Thunderbird is an open source e-mail client. It is one of my favorite e-mail application because of the large community of internet users supporting it. It has less errors then Outlook and Windows Live Mail and more add-ons, plugins then the two combined. Adding an e-mail account is very easy, as well as importing from previous e-mail clients already installed on your computer. In this guide, i will explain how to add the account. If you wish to import the account from another e-mail application such as Eudora, or Outlook then follow steps at “Thunderbird Import“
