Thunderbird email setup tutorial

Before you can configure email software to send and receive emails from our servers, you must

  1. Purchase a cPanel or Cloud hosting subscription service.
  2. Create an email account on our cPanel or Cloud hosting servers.

Once you have done this, you may configure your email software to connect to the email account you created on our servers.

Note: As a courtesy to our customers, we provide online tutorials on how to configure various email software. Our staff however are not able to provide support on how to use Mozilla Thunderbird. For further assistance in using Mozilla Thunderbird please see Mozilla's Thunderbird Manual Account Configuration support page.
