    Two or three of my applications say IMAP is required. My other applications work good under POP3. I want to use Thunderbird as my default email and I have a chose between POP3 or IMAP. I've been trying to get an email default that I could use all my applications to send mail on. Please help

    Are you referring to your ISP e-mail or online e-mail? And if it is ISP who are you with? And if online what is it?

    Dag, you have lost me. I have always been confused with default mail. All I know is that I want it to work with all my applications. Just learned that!!!! Thunderbird has something to do with Outlook Express 6. That's all I know and I set up an account with gmail. I'm so confused.

    I also use qwest as my ISP with windows live and hotmail. This usually works except for the IMAP ones
