These screen shots and instructions will help you configure Mozilla Thunderbird 0.9 email client This client can be used as an alternative to Outlook Express or Netscape. Thunderbird anti spam features, excellent built-in security and customization options and much more!

Also, these instructions were written with Windows in mind, although they should work fine with the Macintosh version of Internet Explorer. As always, you may notice minor visual differences between these screenshots taken from Windows when compared with what you are seeing on your Macintosh.

First you need to download the Mozilla Thunderbird email client from this site: http://www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird - once you start downloading this file you will see the "file download" box appear as shown below. Click on Save.

Step 2

Now choose where you want to save the file to on your computer. We recommend the desktop for ease of access.

Step 3
After the setup file is finished saving to your computer, click on Close.

Step 4
Now go to where you saved the file - you will see an icon like the one shown in the small picture directly below. Simply double click on this icon to start the installation process.

Step 5
