How do you go about setting up Mozilla Thunderbird as email client to receive send email from Gmail and Yahoo Mail?
The next part of the set up will be to configure Thunderbird. Open Thinderbird and go to File > New > Account... Next select "Gmail", click next and enter your name and gmail address(note: you do not have to enter the "@gmail.com" part of the address just your username). Click next and you should come to a summary and an option that you can select if you want to download all of your gmail messages. Select the option if you wish and click "Finish" . You will then be asked to enter your gmail.com password, but note that you can select an option to remember your password otherwise you will have to enter the password everytime you send and receive mail. So select that option if you wish and hit enter.
If you followed all the steps correctly you should be done. Now all you have to do is test it by sending an email to your yahoo email address.
