Thunderbird Server Settings

My ISP (Mediacom) willnot/cannot give me the proper server settings for Thunderbird e-mail. Can anyone tell me what they are? For one thing, it keeps telling me that the Incoming server is a IMAP and I think it should be a POP-3!

My machine is an HP Pavilion a1477c running Windows XP.

Duh, I feel like an idiot! Always go to the source if you want info! But I called Mediacom, and the guy told me they didn't support "Thunderbird"!! No further info!!

Thank you, Mark!!

Glad it helped.

And that 'Help Desk' needs help itself. Thunderbird is just email software. If your email account supports POP and SMTP, (which obviously it does), then it doesn't matter which email client software you use.

They should have known that.

Glad you got it sorted.
