    Please bring back Manual email setups - Thunderbird , Outlook etc !!!!


    Hi there

    The rediculous idea of "automating" email account set ups is Bonkers -- in Thunderbird the only way to get back to any sort of manual setup (remember you could have separate inbound and outbound mail servers with different user id's (logon id's) and passwords) is to "poodlefake" the setup with a bonkers non email address such as L: [email protected] and then you will gert access to the manual screens.

    Outlook 2016/2019 also makes manual setup rediculously hard to do unless you know about the run outlook.exe command with the profiles parameter.

    Why not on the setup screens simply have Manual setup as an option.

    Anyway for those using Thunderbird with non standard email accounts e.g not those common ones such as gmail.com or whatever can still get back to proper manual screens as follows.

    1) On account creation select use existing email address
    2) enter a B/S one e.g L: [email protected] and leave password blank
    3) then hit next
    4) EUREKA -- Manual setup screens !!!!!!!

    Moving email from Thunderbird to Outlook

    IS there a quick and easy way to move 3 years worth of emails from Thunderbird to Outlook 2016?

    The email is setup as POP3.

    So far my only idea has been to create or some how setup the same account as IMAP let the emails sync back up and then let them sync back down in Outlook.

    Sounds painful but I am trying to avoid spending money on an application that may or may not work.

    How to install outlook express on windows xp with explorer 8?

    This is an awkward problem to solve and one I don't think is worth the time and effort.

    The OP would be better off either using a modern webmail service like gmail or outlook.com or using a modern email client like Windows Live Mail like FX-GMC suggested or Thunderbird from Mozilla. If nothing else, Outlook Distress was notorious for corrupting its data files and losing all your email in one easy step. Not worth it.
