Changing your Account Settings in Thunderbird
There are times when you may need to access your email account settings in Thunderbird. This is especially helpful if you find yourself troubleshooting an email issue or if you want to setup another account and want to see what your settings are on a working account.
If you are looking for information on setting up a new account in Thunderbird, please see our article on Creating an email account in Thunderbird
Begin by clicking on "Tools" and then "Account Settings" in your Thunderbird menu:
This will bring up the Account Settings window where you can then select the email account and view your server settings and make changes if needed.
In the same Account Settings window, you can also click Outgoing Server (SMTP) on the left side of the window (at the bottom of that list). Next click on the outgoing server for the email and account and if you need to change any of your outgoing settings, click on the Edit button to bring up the SMTP Server window.
We value your feedback!
There is a step or detail missing from the instructions.
The information is incorrect or out-of-date.
It does not resolve the question/problem I have.
