    • E-mail Address - Enter your e-mail address here.
    • Full Name - Enter your name or business name to your preference. This is the name that will appear to everyone in your e-mails in the "From" field.
    • Incoming Mail Server -
    • Username - Enter your full e-mail address as your username.
    • Password - Put the password for this mail account in this box.
    • Once you've entered all this information, click "Server Settings" under the Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) header, and continue to the next step.

  7. In the following window that appears after clicking "Server Settings" under Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP), you will need to fill in the server your mail will be sending to. Use for this server name.

  8. Click the Close widget to close your accounts window.
