We continue our series How to manually configure your Mail client so it will work with Seed4.Me VPN service.
In most cases Thunderbird will provide simple Automatic setup of popular Email providers like Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Yandex Mail when you are creating a new account.
If it doesn’t work with the VPN connection, you definitely need to configure account manually and follow our instruction.
At first, make sure you have the following details, which can be supplied by your Email provider:

5 simple steps to setup Mail working with VPN:
Step 1. Launch the Thunderbird application, right-click on your Account in the left Sidebar and choose Settings in the drop down menu.
Step 2. In the opened window click on your Account again and choose the Server Settings.
Step 3. In the Server Settings fill in the Server Name, your Incoming mail server, and the Port with 993. And Press OK.
