Here specify a friendly name for this account. E.g. if this account belongs to
your POP-3 account, then you may keep the name as "your name". But make sure
that it is not too lengthy, doesn't have too many special characters. JCourier
will create two files with the specified name, one with ".ibx" extension (Inbox)
and the other with ".obx" (Outbox) in the "install dir\data\accounts". So make
sure that your operating system allows you to create files with the name you
specify in this field.
In this field, specify the from address i.e. your E-Mail address
(not necessarily your actual E-Mail address). This address will be
used by JCourier when Auto Replying to new E-Mails that are coming
into this account.
In this field, specify the User ID of your POP-3 account. Usually the POP-3
servers will require a User Name and a Password to access a mail box.
In this field, you specify the Password for your POP-3 account. This userID
and password, will be used by JCourier to login to your POP-3 Server.
In this field, specify the host name or IP address of your POP-3 server.
JCourier will try to connect to the server you specify here to check for
any new E-Mails in this account.
Here you specify the Port No on which your POP-3 server is running.
The default port no is 110. But, by any means, if your POP-3 server
is running on a different port other than the default one, specify that
port number here.
This is the maximum time in minutes, the JCourier will wait to get response
from your server. If you specify "2" in this field, JCourier will wait for a
maximum of 2 minutes to get a response from your POP-3 server. If your server

the connection temporarily and will try again at a later time.
Here you will specify a ".txt"or ".htm" or ".html" file which will be sent as a
reply to the new mails that come into this account. In this file, you can write
your message, you want to send. For e.g. If this account is to give the product
details to your web site users, then the file may contain all of your product details.
Forward Mails to:
Check this check box if you want that the mails reaching this mailbox are to
be forwarded to another E-Mail address. Enter the new E-Mail address in the
text field provided infront of the check box. JCourier will forward all the
mails automatically to the address you specified.
When you are done with this, press the "Test" button if you want to check
whether or not every thing is right. When you press the "Test" button,
JCourier will actually try to connect to the POP-3 server you have specified
