- Click the Servers tab and type smtp.compuserve.com in the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) box. If you received a different SMTP address from CompuServe, use that instead.
- In the Incoming Mail (POP3) box, type pop.compuserve.com. If you have received a different POP3 address from CompuServe, use that instead.
- Click to select Log on using Secure Password Authentication. This enables you to access your mailbox with the added security provided by CompuServe's Virtual Key - RPA. If you prefer, you can use your mail-only password instead.
- Click the Connection tab and select the appropriate connection type:
If you connect using a local area network, click I use a LAN Connection.
If you connect using a modem and the CompuServe connection, click I use a modem to access my e-mail, and then click to select CompuServe in "Use the following Dial-Up Networking connection." If you connect using a modem and you want to use a different Internet Service Provider (ISP), select it from the list. If an appropriate connection does not exist, you can create one by using the Add button. Click OK.
- Click the Delivery tab. If there are multiple Internet Service Providers listed, select the Internet Mail information service you want to use as your primary mail service.
