Specific Thunderbird Gmail Changes

August 19, 2011

The only changes necessary deal with the new inbound and outbound mail servers (see screen shots below).

Inbound server name is: imap.gmail.com
Outbound server name is: smtp.gmail.com

Common changes in addition to server names we’ve seen necessary are:

1) User Name field must include “@uni.edu” after your email firstname.lastname
2) Outbound (SMTP) server must have password type of “Normal Password”

In Thunderbird’s Inbound Server: Tools / Account Settings / Server Settings
