See Configuration instructions for other email clients.
Note: If you already using Thunderbird for checking your mail on GMAIL, after step 2, please change your “Account Name” into something different (ex: email@example.com GMAIL) or something like that. When creating new account, by default it will use the email address as the account name, and Thunderbird does not handle having 2 identical account name, hence why you need to rename your previous Account Name. After this, continue on to step 3.
