POP mail


Hi there,

I try to create an email account in Thunderbird 16.0.1 to receive the chess.com email using the POP protocol.

I don't know how to set it up. When brosing and searching the forums, I see lots of memebers have difficulties to get it working. Is there any documentation about this?

Regards, Bart


Hi, I just recently started using TB, and it picked up the settings automatically


I have read something like that earlier, but that's not happening at my TB


Can you post the exact server settings?


Both servers are mail.chess.com


and what about ports, SSl and authentication? By default it is auto with my TB


Port is 110, dunno what SSI is.

I just went through the motions of setting up a dummy account, and my TB again searched and found auto-settings.

Maybe just try again?

Just got it working... Changed my username in the settings to my email address... I have read to use your chess.com account name, but that is not correct...

I can receive my mail. Thx for your help.
