Configuring Gandi Mail for Thunderbird
There are 3 different services that may be configured depending on what you want to do:
- Create a POP3 account: This will allow Thunderbird to go and get e-mail from the mail server and download them to your computer (classic e-mail use).
- Create an IMAP account: This allows Thunderbird to get e-mails from the mail server without deleting the messages from the server (webmail use)
- Create a SMTP account: This allows sending e-mail through Gandi's mail server
In the large majority of cases, one uses an incoming service and an outgoing service such as either POP3 & SMTP or IMAP & SMTP (the coupling of POP3 & IMAP would not be of much use for the same account :)
