Configure Mozilla Thunderbird with POP3

Use Mozilla Thunderbird to write email on your PC or Mac, reply to email, and sort email yourself. How to configure Mozilla Thunderbird so that you can retrieve your emails from your eclipso mailbox via POP3 can be found here.

POP3 is suitable for anyone who wants to download unsorted emails from our servers and sort them themselves.

If you want to pre-sort incoming emails in your eclipso mailbox, we recommend that you change the account type so that you can use IMAP. With IMAP you can synchronize your e-mails to all devices and thus have the same status everywhere.


Setup under Mozilla Thunderbird (Here at the example version 78, other or newer program versions differ only insignificantly from this version):

1. Start Mozilla Thunderbird.
2. Click on "File > New > Existing Mail Account" and enter your access data in the following mask:

Mozilla Thunderbird - Create a new account

3. Click on [ Continue ].

The following Mozilla Thunderbird searches for the correct settings and displays them afterwards.
The ports for POP3 + SMTP are already preset, please leave this setting unchanged:

Select Mozilla Thunderbird settings

4. Click [ Done ] to complete the installation. The created account is now visible in the menu:

Mozilla Thunderbird - Account created successfully

5. If you want to set the settings manually, click after step 1 on "configure manually ..":

Mozilla Thunderbird - Configure manually

6. To use SSL, select POP3 as the protocol and enter the following data:

Mozilla Thunderbird -  - Configure manually SSL 995 465

7. To use STARTTLS, select POP3 as the protocol and enter the following data:

Mozilla Thunderbird - Configure manually STARTTLS 110 587

8. Congratulations! Mozilla Thunderbird is now configured to send and receive eclipso mail messages.
