      Thank you so much for this post! This happened to me for the first time today and I was really getting frustrated until I found your post. It worked and my new email account is working fine.

    Thanks Guys. Glad that it was of help.

    Thanks Akash – what a clever and simple solution. The developers of Thunderbird are, unfortunately, not so clever. They have designed an inflexible and flawed system that requires workarounds like yours, when they had no need to.

    Darn it. I realize this is an older post, but I was hoping this would solve my issue… but it didn’t. I’m trying to configure Thunderbird to work with a Gmail account and when I try to add the account in Thunderbird I continue to get the “Incoming Server Already Exists” error message when I try to complete the set-up.

    So frustrating.


  5. Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?

    Thanks Akash, you rock!
