Setting up Thunderbird for InfoQuest Hosted Exchange using an IMAP connection.

Here are the steps to setup Thunderbird for Hosted Exchange using an IMAP connection.

1. Launch Mozilla Thunderbird.

    B. In the Email Address field, type in your full email address.
    C. In the Password field, type in the password of your email.

5.  Click Continue, then click on the "Manual Configure" button right away and the server information boxes will appear below.

6.  Select the IMAP type. Type in exchange.infoquest.com in the Server host name field of the incoming server.

7.  In the Port field of the incoming server, select 993.

8.  In the SSL field of the incoming server, select SSL/TLS.
