  • Over to the right choose Edit, and make sure that the mail server is set to, the server type is set to POP3, and your account name is entered correctly.   "User Name" is your email address.  If you have "Remember Password" checked, it will not prompt you for it every time you send and receive an email.   Click on OK.     NEXT >

  • Now that you are back on the PREFERENCES page, make sure that the outgoing mail servers are also set to and your outgoing mail server user name is also entered correctly.  "Outgoing mail server username" is your email address (Figure 4).  Click OK. 

    If all these settings are set up correctly, the first time you send mail it will prompt you for your password only once.  If it keeps asking you for your password, double check the above directions and remember that passwords are case Sensitive (your caps lock might be on).
