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.
Account wizard will then come up to create a new account:
Leave "Email account" checked and click "Next".
Next screen will ask for your name and email information:
Type your full name and your full email address in the appropriate fields.
Next screen will ask for server information:
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:
Both, incoming and outgoing usernames are the same and are the first part of your email address.
For example, if your email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, your username is jsmith (without @engineering.ucsb.edu)
