This guide will show you how to set up your Netgems email account in Mozilla Thunderbird; Thunderbird is a free email application that is easy to set up and customise. There’s lots of free email applications out there, see our free email app list for other options or download Thunderbird, by visiting https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/thunderbird/ and clicking ‘download’.
Once Thunderbird is installed and set-up, open the application and follow the steps below.
Step 1: To start with, select the link that says ‘Email’ under ‘Create a new account’ which will be on the first screen you see when you opened the app, or click local folder if you don’t see it.
Step 2: A window will have opened up asking if you would like to create a new email address, we are using an email that we have already created, so select “Skip this and use my existing email”.
Step 3: You will now have another window, here you can enter the name of the email account (you choose this) and your email (provided to you by Netgems ie. firstname.lastname@example.org) and also the password sent to you by Netgems.
Step 4: Press continue. This should be ready to go, if you have any issues with getting your Netgems email set up please contact us.
