I work in an office where Outlook reigns supreme. 

My manager has been overseeing multiple accounts via Outlook and it's not going well.  He constantly is replying using the wrong email account and causing quite a bit of confusion.  He NEEDS separate email clients to limit his own confusion.  So I figured he'd be better off have multiple email clients... Outlook having his personal main account, Thunderbird (or similar) with the other email account(s). 

 

Here's my issue, the company uses an in-house server for email.  I'm attempting to set up Thunderbird and it's asking for an Incoming  IMAP (or POP3) and Outgoing SMTP.  I'm not exactly sure of this and so far my guesses have been gone.  Just curious if someone knows where to get this info from through Outlook.

 

I've browsed Google, but every result is for an Internet Settings, not a Server Settings.

 

OS: Win 7 Professional 64bit

Program: Outlook 2010

 

 

Let me know if more info is needed.

Since you are using an in-house email server, you will need to get that information from the IT department or whoever manages the in-house mail server.

The only problem is their response time is notoriously long.  I was hoping to find the info on an existing account already on Outlook.  I take it as it's not that easy?

Unfortunately, no. Since it's an in-house email server (Exchange, I assume?) it's probably using autodiscover. So the email server info you would get from Outlook would be of limited value. In any event, server addresses for SMTP and IMAP/POP tend to be different, and since the existing Outlook client isn't using either IMAP or POP, those addresses wouldn't be obtainable from the Outlook client anyway.
