Modifying Account Settings
If you should need to change your account settings, the procedure is similar to setting up the account
in the first place. Select Tools, Account Settings to display the Account Settings dialog box, and
make sure the E-mail tab is displayed. Select the account of interest (necessary only if you have
more than one) and click the Change button. You’ll be taken through one or more dialog boxes
where you can view and change the settings for this account. The settings will depend on the type
of account and were explained earlier in this chapter in the section on setting up email accounts
(Exchange server settings are covered in Chapter 28).
