2. We will select the option below, Manually configure server options or additional server types.

3. In the next window, click on Internet e-mail and click on Next.

4. We will see a series of fields to fill out. First the name. Second, our email address. Third, we will select IMAP account. In fourth and fifth place we will introduce our server (in case of ignorance we will contact our provider). Finally, we will enter again our email address and then our password. We will also mark the option ”Test account configuration…” and we will NOT mark ”Require session initiated using Authentication…”.
