To configure Mozilla Thunderbird to use Zaep, follow these steps:

  1. Start Mozilla Thunderbird.
  2. Select "Tools | Account Settings".
  3. Select the email account you wish to use Zaep with and then its "Server Settings" category.

  6. Change your "User Name" to your actual email address (for example username@domain.com). NOTE: This MUST be the same as the Zaep account name you intend to use.
