From the tabs at the top, select Mail to see if any accounts are already set up. Shown here is a blank window, meaning that no other previously installed email accounts are setup.
Click on the Add button, and select the option for Mail. You will be asked to enter your name. Type in your Name or Title as you would like it to appear on messages you send. When someone receives your mail, it will show the name entered here to be the author. Once you have typed this name, click Next.

Next you'll be prompted to type in the names of the mail servers for this account. Here is the information you need:

Enter your server information as exampled here and click Next.
In this screen, you must to enter the following:
- Your Account name (username) and password. These are the same ones you created in your console when creating your email account.
