Trying to set up a Thunderbird acct. Get to "New Account Setup" click on email it asks me for what name I would like to appear (duh) and what email address to use. I want to use my gmail address. I am then asked what type of server I use POP or IMAP. How do I know? I think its a POP but not sure. It then asks me for the name of my incoming server. Would this be some gmail address? How do I find out? I know my outgoing server has to be that of my ISP Optimun online.
Help I'm stuck here :thumbsup:

Generally you would use the pop3 and smtp settings of your ISP, but if you want to use gmail, then you set your pop3 to be pop.gmail.com, and your smtp to smtp.gmail.com.
