On the Configuration window's eMail tab,

  1. Configure the Outgoing Mail Server panel with the parameters necessary to send an outgoing email message via your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This information is typically provided on your ISP's web site. Here are the settings for popular ISPs:

  • Note: if you receive a message from gmail entitled "Sign-in attempt prevented" that says "Someone just tried to sign in to your Google Account foo@gmail.com from an app that doesn't meet modern security standards", you can disable Google's screening as described here.
