...use the same for Virgin. The details you need are your Virgin username and password. incoming mail is [email protected]. Outgoing is [email protected].

That should help.

...those @ signs should be dots. >:(-

the googlemail was some sort of wizard where you just put you googlemail address in and it sorted the rest out for you.

my email is a virgin.net address before the merger of ntl/telewest/virgin.net, will the incoming and outgoing still be '.virginmedia.com'?

cheers

Why do you want to access webmail via Thunderbird? That just puts another process in the way.
