I just go in via the link Gadget showed and it does not ask for a password when it cuts me out - will not use it now though as Thunderbird is so easy and I can put all my various email addresses on it.

Would I have to set up Thunderbird for each e-mail or just the primary one?

Once you have downloaded Thunderbird it asks you to say which email address you want to add.    You have to add each one separately though.   It did already know the answers to all the difficult questions - I chose POP.

Thanks - we only tend to use 2, although I think I have added more over the years  ::)

I'll bookmark this thread for the future!

I already have a 'BTid' for bills  ;D

How to export/import address book:
http://its.isber.ucsb.edu/guides/how-import-and-export-your-address-book-thunderbird
You'll need to convert it to an .ldf file after export.


The Tbird email client can export address books in the standard LDIF file format as well as
comma separated or tab delimited text files. Ideal for manually editing if needed.

It can also import in the same file format. Always keep a backup of your address book it makes it easy to import into a new email client if you so wish to change.

Hope this helps

Thanks Jim1. Didn't know that.

I was switched over today and, as yet, can't make too many comments (complaints?) about it.

However, 2 immediate problems are:

1. It logs me out after just a couple of minutes so not looking forward to trying to compose/send an email.

2. Notified of reply to a Rootschat topic I've contributed to but when I click on the link to view it absolutely nothing happens.   However, if I click on the 'Unsubscribe' link (just checking to see if that link worked) it takes me right there.   Why can't I open the link to view the reply?
