When you start Thunderbird for the first time, you will see a screen similar to this:

Leave it at "Don't import anything" and click "Next" unless you want to import settings from another program.

Please select "IMAP".
Then for incoming server, type "imap.engr.ucsb.edu" without quotes.
For outgoing server, type "smtp.engr.ucsb.edu" without quotes.
Click "Next" to move to the next page.


Next screen will ask for your username:

For example, if your email address is jsmith@engineering.ucsb.edu, your username is jsmith (without @engineering.ucsb.edu)


Next screen will ask for account name:
