Trouble logging in?  Account names have been created from the information NABET Local 53 has on file.  Let's say the name you go by is 'Larry Smith', but the information on file is Lawrence Smith.  In this example, your email address and user name would be This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  The same would be true for spouses with hyphenated married names.  As an example, Mary Smith-Jones would have an email address and user name of This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

5.) Select {POP}, and add  the server name "mail.nabet53.org" (w/o the quotes), then click {Next}

6.) Enter your Account Name (same as your email address), then click {Next}

7.) Click {Finish}

 

8.) From the {Tools} menu, select {Account Settings}.  Select {Outgoing Server}

 

9.)Select the Nabet53 account, then click {Edit}

 

10.) Insure the SMTP Server Port is set for 587, if it is not, then edit the entry, and click {OK}.  Click {OK} once again to confirm and exit Account Settings.

 

Congratulations!  You are now ready to begin using your NABET Local 53 email account with Thunderbird.
