i just downloaded thunderbird a couple a weeks ago and i have tried to set up my hotmail account up on it, but for some reason, it won't let me. I don't know if i gave it some wrong information, or if it just won't let it run with hotmail.

 

Can someone help me out?

What issue are you having? Does it give an error or something?

Unless Microsoft has changed the way Hotmail works since I stopped using it (Viva la Gmail!) it uses an M$ proprietary connection method called HTTPmail. There is a plugin for Mail that enables HTTPmail access for your hotmail accounts, there are plugins for Thunderbird that claim to do the same thing. But in the end Joshr is correct; you need to tell us what the errors are for us to be able to most effectively help you.

I looked in to my hotmail account and just decided to move on over to gmail. Then i just configured it with thunderbird so everything is good.

 

Thanks for your help! :)
