If you find dealing with multiple mailboxes bothersome, using an email client such as Mozilla Thunderbird can become a great solution.
Mozilla Thunderbird is an open-source email application developed by the Mozilla Foundation in 2004 and since then had become one of the most popular email management platforms alongside Outlook.
In this guide, we will take you through step-by-step how to set up a Thunderbird email account.

You can check your login information by going to the hPanel -> Email Accounts, as shown in the example below.
