  8. If you're finishing the Add Account wizard for the first time, Windows Mail will download SupraNet's welcome message and drop you at the home screen. From there, go to Tools in the menu bar, then Accounts in the dropdown. If this is not the first time you've run Windows Mail, skip to the next step.

  9. Double click the newly-created SupraNet account in the accounts list. This brings up the account's properties.
