Step Two

In the Your name field, enter the name you would like to have displayed to your recipients. You will most likely use your full name but you are free to enter anything you wish such as your company name or a short description of the account if it serves a special purpose.

In the E-mail and field, enter your Lavabit password. Click Continue.

Step Three

Continue through the prompts until Mailbird finds the settings automatically. Enter your Lavabit password and click Continue.

After Mailbird syncs with the mail server, you should see a message from the Lavabit Support Team in your Inbox. You can also try sending an e-mail to make sure your outgoing mail works as well.
