    Email Client Question? (Thunderbird etc)

    I am a complete newb in regards to linux email clients. I've heard of Thunderbird but it doesn't seem to support my primary email provider - Hushmail.com.

    Anyway I was wondering if there are any tutorials about this for beginners and what other free alternatives are there other then Thunderbird you'd recommend?


    Thanks.

    I use both. and it works fine.
    Are you a paid hushmail user?
    Premium users get access to IMAP and POP.

    Although Thunderbird is pretty good, and can often "guess" the correct settings to use, it's sometimes necessary to edit the settings manually.

    Some of the relevant settings for Hushmail can be found here: https://help.hushmail.com/entries/24...ames-and-ports

    Never assume that information you find using a search engine is up-to-date.

    That could be the problem; I'm not yet a premium customer.

    POP and IMAP desktop access (read: client) are reserved for Premium Accounts.
