1. From the menu select Tools->Accounts
2. Select the 'Mail' tab
3. Click Add->Mail
4. Display Name: YourName
5. Email-address: yourname@yourdomain.com ('yourname' should be a valid username on the mail server!)
6. Incoming mail: 127.0.0.1 (for external connections you should use the public IP address of your PC!)
7. Outgoing mail: 127.0.0.1 (for external connections you should use the public IP address of your PC!)
8. Account name: yourname ('yourname' should be a valid username on the mail server!)
9. Password: enter the password for the 'yourname' account.

If the server has been configuired correctly you should now be able to send and receive email through QUick 'n Easy Mail Server.
