If you aren't sure of the difference between POP and IMAP and why you would use one or the other, please click here.

1) Click on Email under Create a new account.

 

2) Click on Skip this and use my existing email.

 

3)Enter your information and click continue.



4) Select IMAP and then click Manual config.

 

5) Set as circled, except the user name is your email address. Click Done.



6) Check the box and click Done.

 

7) You are now in your email.

 
If you want to be sure to have your Sent Items synchronized to the server, please continue on.
8) Right click on the account, then left click on Settings.



9) Click on Copies & Folders, then Other. Proceed to the menu as shown and select Sent Items. Click OK.
