To set up your Thunderbird client to work with Gmail:

(username at gmail.com) in the Email Address field, and click Next.
Google Apps users, enter your full address in the format
username at your_domain.com.
Select IMAP as the type of incoming server you are using. Enter
imap.gmail.com in the Incoming Server field.
Set the Outgoing Server to smtp.gmail.com, and click Next.

Enter your full email address (including @gmail.com @your_domain.com)
in the Incoming User Name and Outgoing User Name fields, and click

Enter a name for your email account in the Account Name field, and click Next.
Verify your account information in the dialog box, and click Finish.
Select Server Settings from the folder list below your new account.
Update the Port value to 993.
In the Security Settings section, select SSL from the Use secure

Click OK to save your changes and exit the Account Settings dialog.

Check our recommended client settings, and adjust your client's
settings as needed.

* Did you click 'Save Changes' after enabling IMAP in Gmail? To ensure
that Gmail can communicate with your mail client, be sure to click
Save Changes on the Forwarding and POP/IMAP settings tab.
