Thunderbird on gmail

by Amos16 / May 7, 2007 1:31 AM PDT

Hello - I have been accessing my mail on T-bird through a gmail address. Now each time I get new mail it appears on both browsers. I read and enter the mail on T-bird, but have to delete or archive it on each of them separately. Is there a way to avoid this, that is getting notified that there is new mail but having to read and delete it only once? Tx - Amos

an email program, similar to Outlook Express.

To set up Mozilla Thunderbird to Gmail, instructions below

Now each time I get new mail it appears on both browsers

What do you mean by both browsers?

You can fix your gmail settings as follows,

Open gmail on web browser

click on settings

click on Forwarding and POP

under #2 use the drop down menu to the setting you want. Mine is set to delete Gmail's copy.

Hope this helps.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
