Configuring Thunderbird Mail and Filters

  1. Start Thunderbird

  2. Click on 'Tools', then click on 'Account Settings'.

    A new window will pop up.

  3. Click on 'Edit' in the new window, and click on 'Mail and Newsgroup Account Settings'.

  4. Click on 'Outgoing Server(SMTP)' in the list.

  5. Enter 'mail.texas.net' in the 'Outgoing Server' field, and make sure the 'Port' field has '25' in it.
    *note - if you are not using Texas.net as your 'ISP'(internet access), you will need to use your ISP's outgoing email server.

  6. Click on 'Add Account' towards the bottom of that window on the left hand side.

    An 'Account Wizard' window will pop up that says 'New Account Setup.'

  7. Select 'Email Account', as the type of account you would like to create, then click on 'Next'.

  8. Fill out the 'Your Name' field with your name, and put in your Texas.net email address in the appropriate field. Click 'Next' when you have filled in the fields.

  9. Select 'POP' as the type of incomming email server you are using. In the 'Incomming Server' field, put in 'pop.texas.net'. Click 'Next'.

  10. In the field 'Incomming User Name' and 'Outgoing User Name', put in your username for Texas.net. Your username is everything before the '@texas.net'(example: just 'username', not username@texas.net).

    Click 'Next'

  11. In the field 'Account Name', enter the name you wish. The default name is fine.

  12. You should now be at a 'Congratulations' Screen. Verify all of the information, and click 'Finish'.

  13. To activate the Junk Mail filter included in Thunderbird, select Tools. Select Junk Mail Controls, and then click on the 'Adaptive Filters' tab and select 'Enable adaptive junk mail detection'

    You are now ready to start using email with Thunderbird.
