That link looked quite straightforward until it got to the POP server name bit.  I wouldn't have a clue what to put there.   Why are computers so complicated?

As soon as I saw POP, I shuddered - it took me back to my very early days of e-mail on dial up - 1995 or thereabouts  ::)

Yukkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk


When it happens, I'll use my non-BT ones  and keep BT in mothballs!

POP is still the original primitive incoming email protocol (post office protocol)

If you google email settings for your particular isp/email provider there should be a
help/faq page explaining all the required settings.

POP = post office protocol (incoming email)
SMTP = simple mail transfer protocol (outgoing email)

Your pop setting may look like:
pop.mail.yourisp.com or mail.yourisp.com

Your smtp setting may look like:
smtp.mail.yourisp.com or mail.yourisp.com

Hope this helps

Jim

I found it easy to set up. If you can set up Yahoo you can do this as there's no difference in that respect.

Many thanks.  Seems to have worked and Thunderbird is now trying to download nearly 20,000 emails.  I knew I should have deleted some!

How to export/import address book:

You'll need to convert it to an .ldf file after export.

That's really good Jim.  Thanks.   I had just realised that had not happened.

To access mine I'm directed to the BT homepage where I have to log in. I'm then directed to that page & then I have to log in again & then I can access my emails....that's if it doesn't time out, then I have to start again & if BT lose the connection I have to start again again.
With the old Yahoo when I clicked on emails it went to my emails which BT doesn't want us to do anymore.
