Thunderbird supports both POP3 and IMAP e-mail. Instructions on how to set up a POP3 account in Thunderbird can be found here. It supports all mail services that provides POP3 interfaces. This includes services like GMail, Hotmail and MobileMe.

To configure Thunderbird for IMAP you can look here.

If they have a Hotmail account, they can use Windows Live Mail instead to get Hotmail emails. It also supports POP3 email accounts. – Isxek Feb 20 '10 at 21:20

You can use Thunderbird to access multiple POP mailboxes from any e-mail provider.

However, If you are asking if you can have your e-mail box stored at Thunderbird (such as an address like, no you can't. May I suggest Gmail if you are looking for a new e-mail provider? Gmail supports both POP and IMAP, and works with Thunderbird perfectly.

Hotmail now (Hotmail didn't use to support POP) supports POP which means Thunderbird can be used for Hotmail.
