Mozilla Thunderbird does not support webmail, but if you want to use webmail like Yahoo or Gmail, You need to install an add-on that imitates a POP server. Sadly, you need to have a paid-for Yahoo! Mail so you can set it up with Thunderbird, otherwise it won’t work (But then there is this other option to use Yahoo! Mail for free on a desktop client such as Thunderbird, You can install the YPOPs! Client).If you have a paid for Yahoo! Account or have successfully installed the YPOPs client – You can go ahead and set up Yahoo mail in Thunderbird. Here is a useful link on a step by step guide on setting up your Yahoo! Mail:

As for Gmail, Gmail supports a free POP, SMTP and IMAP server on all its webmail accounts—so you can definitely set up your Gmail for free. Here is a link on a step-by-step walkthrough in setting up a Gmail account in Thunderbird:

Yes, you can combine your two accounts in one – but you need to have the latest version Mozilla Thunderbird 3, it combines individual Inbox and allows you to manage all your emails in one spot

Wow,  Tunacao_Caaron1. Thanks for your detailed steps. I chose POP for my incoming server, entered my outgoing and incoming username then verified my account. I changed the port to 80 as what you'd said and type  smtpout.secureserver.net. Now my Mozilla thunderbird set-up is finished.

Thanks
