How Do I convert Thunderbird 2.0 to Google?

Step 1: Enable POP settings in webmail Note: If you have already enabled POP settings in the webmail, head down to step 2 here.
  1. Go to www.dishmail.net and login.
  2. If taken to the Start Page, click the Mail link in the banner. If taken to webmail directly, proceed.
  3. Select Settings at the top left of the screen.

  4. On the Settings page, select “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” at the top.

  5. In the “POP Download” section, select the radio button for “Enable POP for all mail”

  6. Click the dropdown box next to “When messages are accessed with POP” and pick either Keep, Archive, or Delete. These mean that when the email client downloads email:
    1. Keep keeps the downloaded email in the webmail inbox for later access.
    2. Archive keeps the downloaded email in webmail, but removes them from the webmail inbox. You can access archived email in webmail by selecting “All Mail” from the left selections.
    3. Delete removes the downloaded email from webmail. Those emails will not be available in webmail or for downloading from another client.
