    Thunderbird Not Letting Me Sign On

    So I've been trying to add a custom hosted email account (blank@mydomain.com) into thunderbird mail. I have all of the ports and details correct, (for example: everything works correctly when I input them into my phone), but after putting them into Thunderbird, it keeps telling me that my username and/or password are incorrect. Username is the email, and password is the email password, correct??

    Thanks for any help!

    How are you connecting? POP3? IMAP?

    "Configuration could not be verified - is the username or password wrong?"

    but these are my email login details.

    OK. Your email address, does the host use something like cPanel? Or Gmail?

    OK, in cPanel there are instructions for setting up a client like Thunderbird. If you go and read them, it should work
