Step 1

On a new install of Evolution, you'll get the Evolution Setup Assistant wizard welcome screen. Click 'continue'.

Step 2

We will be setting up a new account so you don't have to worry about restoring from a backup. Click 'continue'.

Step 3

Here you can enter the display name and e-Mail address for your account. The e- Mail address would have been supplied to you by a Plexicomm team member. The display name is whatever name you want to appear in other people's inbox. You can leave it blank just to have the full e- Mail address displayed or enter your full name or a nickname.

You can also set the Reply-To and Organization information. These are optional fields and most users will want to leave these blank.

Step 4

Fill in the following information for the incomming POP3 connection. If you're setting up this account on a personal, secure machine you may want to select the option to "Remember Password". Once you've filled in all data click 'Continue'.

Step 5

Here you can change the setup options for how your desktop client interacts with e-Mail stored on the server. These settings can be very important, as they can make it very difficult to check your e-Mail from multiple sources like WebMail, a Smartphone, or an additional PC.

Most likely you'll want to select 'Leave message on server'. Our servers will delete mail in your inbox after 90 days automatically. If you want mail to stay on the server you'll need to access WebMail and make separate folders to store your saved e-Mail in. Any desktop client set up through POP3, and not IMAP, will also save your e-Mail locally on the computer you are using it.

Otherwise, set your desired time to check for new messages and click 'Continue.

Step 6

Fill in the following information for the outgoing SMTP connection. If you're setting up this account on a personal, secure machine you may want to select the option to "Remember Password". Once you've filled in all data click 'Continue'.

Step 7

This is simply a text label for your account, no other parties will be able to view this label. Once you've entered a label click 'Continue' to move on to the last step.

Step 8

Simply select 'Apply' and you're done with the basic setup.

Step 9

Evolution should immediately ask for your e-Mail password. If you set 'Remember Password' in each place during the set-up process you should only need to enter this information once. Click 'OK' and you're e-Mail account will be fully set up.
