Learn the Basics of TCNJ’s new e-mail client

The College of New Jersey Information Technology


What is Thunderbird?

How different is Thunderbird email client from Netscape?

Is Netscape still my default Internet browser?

Thunderbird is a free, open-source, cross-platform mail client for most operating systems.

Thunderbird looks very similar to Netscape Messenger, and the functions are also very similar.

Internet Explorer is now your default browser.

Webmail – No Changes

Slight Differences

  • New Mail Notification Icon

    • A mail notifier will automatically appear on System Tray (just as in Netscape).

    • When a new message is received, if Thunderbird is open, a

      small icon appears above the system tray (lower, right side).

  • Create Signature File

    • Your signature file was not automatically inserted into your Thunderbird profile. During your upgrade, written instructions are provided on how to add a signature file.

  • Internet Explorer Is Now Your Default Internet Browser

    • Your Netscape bookmarks have been converted to Internet Explorer favorites which is the equivalent of Netscape bookmarks.

  • Create Multiple E-mail Accounts

    • You can now add a second e-mail account, and open the account in one workstation window.

Where is my e-mail “Address Book”?

Locate the address book named “pab” (left side of the screen). This will contain all the address from your old “Personal Address Book” in Netscape.

“pab”

Note: If you created any other address books in Netscape (for example, “family”), then it will appear in Thunderbird’s address book named “family.”

You can then drag the addresses out of “pab” into Thunderbird’s Personal Address Book.
