If you don't like that, you can bring titlebar back by following this.

This tutorial will help you setup your Gmail email account using Thunderbird on Ubuntu 24.04 "Noble Numbat." Thunderbird from Mozilla is the default email client program on Ubuntu. With this, you can send and receive emails in a dedicated application with offline access, a lot of personal configurations and abilities to backup them easily. We will use the standard IMAP configuration here that is the easiest one. Lastly, we hope this will help your computing with Ubuntu. Now let's start!



1. Run Thunderbird from the Ubuntu button.

2. "Account Setup" should show by now.

If not, click three lines menu > New Account > Existing Email.  

3. Type your three information:

  • Your full name
  • Your email address e.g.
  • Your password

4. Click Continue and let Thunderbird process it for a while.

 5. "Configuration Found" and "Available configurations" messages will show. Let it select "IMAP" and not POP3 and click Done.


6. A new window will show to ask you three things:

  • Re-enter your email e.g., then
  • Re-enter your password, then
  • Click Allow to allow Thunderbird to access Gmail (this is a security called "OAuth2"), then
  • This window will disappear.


7. "Account Successfully Created" message will show at the top and click Finish to the bottom.


8. Finally, your Gmail inbox will show on the left e.g. > wait for it to read all your emails > now Thunderbird is ready to send and receive emails with your Gmail account.
