But I get an error saying "sending of username did not succeed.Mail server localhost responded: no POP server defined. Use real server address instead of 127.0.0.1 in your account" does anyone know what this means?

If you are getting this message when sending your email with Thunderbird, then log into gmail and go into settings and enable gmail into a pop server. (this has to be done anyway to recieve gmail anyway)

I am getting that error when I'm checking for hotmail email.I've only set-up my hotmail one so far. And that mrpostman didn't come with a installer, just files and a few folders.

Why dont you try Hotmail Popper?
Do a google for version 2.1.1 it is the free one.
Works great with avast and thunderbird.(its what I use)

I choose to suggest mrpostman over Hotmail popper because mrpostman can receive Hotmail/Gmail/Yahoo Mail as one application, so there is not need to install more then one.

Ok now to explain how to install mrpostman in an easy way, let me know if you get stuck.

Download the mrpostman application installer from here t your desktop (make sure its to your desktop only) then run this command from Start bar>Run, c:\program files\java\j2re1.4.2_05\bin\java -jar c:\(path to desktop)\install-mrpostman-20041031.jar.)
Make sure you install it to c:\program files\mrpostman
Then make sure you're logged in as an Administrator and run c:\program files\mrpostman\install-ntservice.bat
Hopefully then the MrPostman GUI will show up. Uncheck the "show GUI on startup" option (if you don't want it loading at boot time) and close the window.

You should then be able to receive your Hotmail

Yes, MrPostman is written in java so it is completely cross-plateform. you can get java from Here

*Note* If the default language on your computer is 'US English' then download the top one, if not download the 'Windows (All Languages)' one.

As said just below the download ' Filesize = 10,242,464 bytes.' which is about 10.2 MB i think.

Takes seconds to install.

Well, open mrpostman, then open Thunderbird, then see if you can receive your hotmail yet, if you can we will move on to adding any other accounts to your Thunderbird, such as Gmail.

Could you post a screenshot of the server settings soon (open Thunderbird>tools>account settings> then click the server settings bit in the left hand side.)
