 Before you begin, you will need to have Mozilla Thunderbird installed on your computer as well as create an E-mail Account in Your 1&1 Package if you have not already and then participate in discussion on Thunderbird Forum Help.

Step 1

Launch Mozilla Thunderbird. If it is your first time launching Mozilla Thunderbird, the Mail Account Setup Wizard should appear and you may skip to step 4. Otherwise continue with the next step.

Step 2

From the Mozilla Thunderbird window, select Tools > Account Settings.

Step 3

At the bottom-left, select Account Actions > Add Mail Account

Step 4

Enter Your name, your full 1&1 Email address and your 1&1 e-mail address Password. Check the box for Remember password if you do not wish to enter your password every time when checking or sending e-mail. Then, click the Continue button.
