If you have email hosting with WebsiteExpress, then you can take advantage of our secure email hosting services for your Mozilla Thunderbird program. A secure email account will give you an encrypted connection to and from the server so that your password and data is secured during transmission over the internet. This will prevent anyone who may be monitoring your internet connection from viewing your email account details. This is especially useful on public wifi connections such as what you would find at a coffee shop or a hotel. Please follow the instructions below to set up a secure WebsiteExpress email account for your domain name in Mozilla Thunderbird.
Mozilla Thunderbird is a free email program that you can download here.
Here are the settings to quickly set up Mozilla Thunderbird.
Encryption Type: SSL/TLS
Incoming IMAP Port: 993
Incoming POP3 Port: 995

To set up a new email account go to Tools and click on Account Settings.

Click on Manual config.
