Mozilla Thunderbird v.3.1.7
I am trying to setup Gmail, but none of the settings are working. I have tried every resource:
- Blogs, tutorials
- Instructions by Google
- Instructions by Thunderbird
- Questions here
But, still its not working. My settings are as follows
Server Type: IMAP Mail server Server Name: imap.gmail.com Username: email@example.com Port: 993 Default: 993 Connection Security: SSL/TLS Authentication method: Encrypted password
Outgoing server (SMTP)
Server Name: smtp.gmail.com Port: 587 Default: 25 Connection Security: STARTTLS Authentication method: Encrypted password Username: firstname.lastname@example.org
IMAP is enabled in my Gmail settings.
ERROR: Connection to the server email@example.com timed out.
I am behind a proxy server and I have configured those settings under:
Thunderbird Preferences -> Advanced -> Network and Disk Space -> Connection Settings -> Manual Proxy Configuration
The proxy configuration works, as when I created a Blogs and News feeds a/c, it was working properly and fetching the feeds for me. So, Thunderbird is configured properly as per the proxy settings.
