    I'm trying to set up a second email account in Thunderbird. The account is there, but it doesn't show up (meaning it doesn't have it's own set of folders). Can anyone help me make it show up?

    Oh, and also: what's the SMTP server for Rocketmail. I found it online but maybe it's wrong because it doesn't work.

    Thanks D3v1l80Y. Why doesn't this show up as a thread I created?

    Thanks for your help.

    When you set up a new account in Thunderbird, on the screen where you choose POP or IMAP there is a checkbox that says Use Global Inbox. If you uncheck that, the account will show up in it's own folder in the sidebar. Otherwise all mail will go into the one inbox.

    I hope that is what you are after.

    Yes, thanks. I would never have guessed that on my own!

    Glad the info helped. I had the same issues when I first installed Thunderbird and kept digging till I found it.
