Hello, I would like to have more than one Email address, one for home day to day stuff and one for business. No idea how to set about this but I know it can be done fairly easily. Can someone tell me how please, ISP is Orange (Wanadoo)
ed-0 thanks for the quick response. I have not done this before but reading your links it seems I can just type in any name (within reason of course) and I will have another Email account in that name, is that the case?
I will try the link to Orange as that is my ISP and see what happens.
When I want to read mail (assuming I get any) on my new account will Thunderbird be able to differentiate between the two accounts or more simply how do I view mail to the new a/c.
Well it seems to work i.e. I can read a mail I sent to myself from my original address. I had to do it via skidzy`s link though, a shortcut icon on the screen would be perfect for my requirements. (Not sure of the best way to do this)
skidzy, yes it was a .net account and I appreciate now that it cannot be merged into Thunderbird. You say it is "web collection only" does this mean I cannot send mail out from this address, if this is the case then it is no use at all.
ade.h, "Haven`t you added it to your mail client yet" No I haven`t, I was unaware that I needed to nor do I know how to, read the lines in your posting but where is the starting point.
Go through each step - you can't really go wrong at this point because it asks for one field at a time. Note that your password will not be requested yet.
When done, select the new account from the Accounts list and choose your prefs.
Now check for messages. If the account has been setup by your ISP - may take a while - it will attempt to connect to the pop3/imap server and the password manager will pop-up. Enter your password, check the box and okay it.
