    8 The first step in creating a Thunderbird account, is to provide your name and email address. If you are setting up your own email, use your name and addres. If you want mail to appear to come from an organization as a whole, you can put only your organization's name instead of your own.  Press "Continue" when you are done.

     18Next, you'll need to decide whether you want a POP account or an IMAP account. Thing to consider in making that choice are [wiki:faq/email/pop-vs-imap listed here]. Using "POP" has the potential to reduce loads on the MayFirst email servers (if you deselect the option to "leave messages on server") when you download the emails to your own computer. With "IMAP", your emails are maintained on the server (until you delete them) so they remain accessible from any computer. If you need to access your emails using webmail or from multiple computers, you may want to configure your email client to use "IMAP" instead of "POP". If so, culling emails regularly will help reduce use of resources on the MayFirst email servers.
