NOTE: Before attempting to set your easyMail address on Thunderbird, please make sure to verify that you've configured and activated easyMail within your easyDNS account. For further information on this please go HERE.
To set up your easyMail address with Thunderbird, please do the following:
1. Open your Thunderbird mail client
3. When prompted for a new email address, click on SKIP THIS AND USE MY EXISTING EMAIL
4. Enter your name, easyMail address, and easyMail password

Sometimes your email client will continue to give you issues, even though you believe the setup is correct. The following are the most common issues users run into:
2. Are you using the correct easyMail server information?
INBOUND SERVER INFORMATION
Outbound Mail Server: mailout.easymail.ca
3. Are you using an SSL port (993 for IMAP or 995 for POP) for your Inbound server? If so, do you have the SSL enabled?
4. Are you using an SSL port (465) for your Outbound SMTP server? If so, do you have the SSL enabled?
NOTE: Users will have email issues if an SSL port is specified but the SSL option isn't selected. The same applies if a non SSL port is specified, but the SSL option is selected. This is why you want to make sure you have the correct settings.
5. Is your AUTHENTICATION METHOD set to PASSWORD for both your Inbound and Outbound servers (see above)?
If you have verified that you are using the correct easyMail information, then you will want to refer to your email client's help documentation for further guidance.
