This step-by-step guide will help you connect your WPX Email account with the Thunderbird Mail Client. Follow the steps closely and you will have your free email account ready on Thunderbird in no time!
Step 1: The first thing you need is your email account information.
To access your email, first log in and go to My Account (1) → Emails (2) and then select the automatic email that we sent (3) with your email account details inside (which in this demo is ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’, as seen below);

Step 2: The next step is to add in your WPX Email settings into the Thunderbird Client.
From the main menu, under Accounts, select Email to create a new account;
Step 3: After choosing to create a new email account, a window will pop up. Make sure to select 'Skip this and use my existing email';
Step 4: Make sure to add a username (‘Your name’) and password as shown in the screenshot below. Keep in mind that you can fill in the
‘Your name’ field as you like (your first name, rather than an email name);

In this case, either the Advanced config menu will appear, or you'll have to select it; it's next to 'Get a new account'. Adjust the remaining settings as shown below and click the Re-Test button, then Done;
If the password that you've entered is correct, congratulations - you've successfully connected your mailbox with Thunderbird!
Don’t forget that you can connect additional mailboxes to the Thunderbird Client:
