9.2.3. Using Thunderbird

The first time you press the Get mail button you are asked for your password. Type in your password and press Enter or click the Ok button. You might want to check the box Use Password Manager to remember this password . If you do, Thunderbird will automatically check your email without asking for your password in the future. Before choosing this option, remember that there is always some risk associated with storing a password. If your password and setup was correct, Thunderbird will now download your email messages from the server.
Thunderbird allows you to create, store and send email by clicking the appropriate buttons located on the menu at the top of the screen:
Get Mail
