5. On the E-mail Account Setup page, type in the e-mail address you plan to set up, as well as the password for that account, and click Next. At this point, the e-mail setup wizard will state that it is unable to configure the account you entered. Don’t worry; that’s what we’re about to fix.

6. At the current screen, select I will provide the settings to add this e-mail account, and click Next. No need to enter your e-mail address and password again; you’ll only need to if you accidentally misspelled one of them in Step 5.

7. Select the type of account you want to configure. For this purpose, we’re selecting Internet Service Provider E-mail (POP/IMAP). Click Next.

9. Enter in your Username, Password, and E-mail Server settings. If you don’t know what your e-mail server is, contact your ISP and ask for that information. It should be POP.Your_ISP_Name.Com or IMAP.Your_ISP_Name.com. Click Next.
