<p>On the <gui>Receiving Email</gui> page (accessible via <guiseq><gui>Edit</gui><gui>Preferences</gui><gui>Mail Accounts</gui><gui style="button">Edit</gui><gui>Receiving Email</gui></guiseq>):</p>
<item><p>Enter your username for that server.</p></item>
<item><p>Either manually enter the Host URL and OAB URL, or click <gui style="button">Fetch URL</gui> which will ask you for your password and then try to automatically fill in the values.</p>
<note style="tip"><p>If you are in an organizational environment, you may want to contact your system administrator for more information.</p></note></item>
<item><p>Select your authentication type in the Authentication list, or click <gui style="button">Check for Supported Types</gui> to have Evolution check for supported authentication mechanisms. Some servers do not announce the authentication mechanisms they support, so clicking this button is not a guarantee that available mechanisms actually work.</p></item>
<p>On the <gui>Receiving Options</gui> page (accessible via <guiseq><gui>Edit</gui><gui>Preferences</gui><gui>Mail Accounts</gui><gui style="button">Edit</gui><gui>Receiving Options</gui></guiseq>):</p>
<item><p>If you want Evolution to check automatically for new messages, click the <gui>Check for new messages every ... minutes</gui> option and select the frequency in minutes.</p></item>
<item><p>You can also define if Evolution checks for new messages in all folders.</p></item>
<item><p>If you would like to have a copy of the address book on the server for offline access to it, enable <gui>Cache offline address book</gui> and click <gui style="button">Fetch list</gui>. Afterwards, select the address book from the available options.</p></item>
<p>If you want <link xref="mail-filters">Filters</link> to be automatically used for new messages in your inbox, enable <gui>Apply filters to new messages in INBOX on this server</gui>.</p>
