How to setup Mozilla Thunderbird for SEI Email access

If you already have an existing account created in Thunderbird and want to add a SEI account, click here.

Initial Installation


1) Open Thunderbird.



2) Click the "Skip this and use my existing email" button.



3) Enter an identifier for the mail recipients (usually your name), your SEI e-mail address, and password. If you want to log into your mail without being prompted for your password, leave the "remember password" checkbox checked. Click Continue.



4) Select either POP3 or IMAP. POP3 will move your mail to your local device. IMAP will leave your mail on the server. If you want to see your mail on several devices, it is recommended to select IMAP. Once you have made your decision, click Done.



If you removed the "remember me" checkbox in step 3, you will be prompted to enter your password. Otherwise, your SEI email account setup is complete.



5) Close then re-open Thunderbird and send an e-mail.
