Presently I am using OEx as my email client, but, having heard the praises of Thunderbird, I am trying to set it up on my computer. However I am encountering problems. I am with plusnet that allows me unlimited accounts/identities (?) in the forms say of “fred@[email protected]” or “[email protected]” and so on. Each of the accounts/identities has the same user name and password with the ISP.
The problem I encounter is this: when I am asked to enter the user name provided by my ISP and attempt to enter my user name (stupid in the examples above) I am told to enter another one. How to I get round the impasse, as I both want to sort my incoming mail in to separate folders and also sent out mail as from different persons.
I am tearing my hair out and am wondering if Thunderbird may be the bees’ knees as claimed, but would like to give it a fair trial. I will bear the embarrassment if it is something daft that I am doing to cause the problem.
