More Account Settings
The email account setup dialog box, shown in Figure 3.5, has a button labeled More Settings. You
may not need to make any changes here, but if you do you can refer to this section for the details.
Clicking the More Settings button brings up the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box. This dialog
box has four tabs for POP and IMAP accounts and a fifth for IMAP accounts only. The following
sections look at these in turn.
The General tab, shown in Figure 3.8, has these three entries:
n Mail Account: This is the name Outlook uses to refer to the account, for example in the
account list. The default is your email address but you can change it to anything you like
such as Work Email or Yahoo Account.
n Organization: If you enter your organization name here it will be included in the headers
of all email messages you send. Recipients normally do not see these headers, and Outlook
does not make use of this information in any way. Other email programs may, however.
n Reply E-mail: When someone receives an email from you and replies by clicking the Reply
button in their email program, their reply message will be sent to this address. By default
it is the email address associated with the current email account, but if you have more
than one email account you can enter another address here.
