Next. Go to Thunderbird click account settings under tools add account, then type in:
Follow the set up guide:
Incoming Server: pop.gmail.com
Outgoing:SMPT: gmail.com (If asked).
Check the box next to 'Use secure connection (SSL),' and ensure that '995' appears in the 'Port:' field.
If you wish to leave a copy off the mail on the server check Leave message on server in Server settings.
Remember SSL needs to be ticked on port 995.
And you can set a time for your account to be checked.

I set it up just fine and I appreciate your help, but I've got another question. I want to set a master password and it says to:
1 Open the Edit menu and choose Preferences.
2 Click the Privacy and Security category. If no subcategories are visible, click to expand the list, then click the name for the preferences you want to view or change.
What edit menu are they talking about? Every edit menu I check doesn't have a preference menu.
