Thunderbird 3 account setup tip

Wish you could set up an account in Thunderbird manually?

You’re not alone.

The trick: Hit the “stop” button as soon as you enter the automatic setup window and set your settings manually. If you wait to press “stop” it will not stop and the best thing you can do is to cansel and start over again.
