GENERAL TAB

This tab contains the basic information for your e-mail account.

Mail Account - You can put whatever you wish in this field. If you have more than one e-mail account, you can put a more descriptive name, like your e-mail address, here. It makes it easier to identify each individual account.

User Information:

• Name
Put the name that you want people to see on your e-mail in this box.
• Organization
You can fill in your company name or leave this blank if you wish.
• E-mail address
Place your entire e-mail address in this field. We used johnqpublic@yourdomain.com for this example. Replace this with your own e-mail address.
• Reply address
You can normally leave this blank. However, if you want people to reply to an address other than the one shown in the E-mail address box, put that e-mail address here.

Check the box if you want this account included every time you check for e-mail.

SERVERS TAB
This tab contains the information that you need to connect to the SkilTech e-mail servers.

Server Information:

• Incoming mail server type: POP3
• Incoming mail (POP3): mail.skiltech.com

Put your e-mail login ID here. This is the sk##### number your were assigned.

Outgoing Mail Server

Check the box next to "My server requires authentication".


Click the "Settings..." button and confirm that only the top option ("Use same settings as my incoming mail server") is selected. Click OK.



CONNECTION TAB

This section only needs to be re-configured if you've changed your method of internet connection. For most people this will never have to be changed.

ADVANCED TAB

Leave the Server Port Numbers on the Advanced tab as originally configured:

• Outgoing server (SMTP): 25 (some ISPs might require you to change that to 8025)
• Incoming server (POP3): 110
In the Delivery section, you may check "Leave a copy of messages on server" if you're planning to access your account later via webmail or want the messages retained so that you can access them later on a different computer. Otherwise, leave this section unchecked.
