|If you have opted for an additional email (POP) account, this page
will show you how to set up your email program to access your new email.
Just remember, your new email account is not a dialup account. You will
continue to connect using your primary login name and password (or DSL or other connection). The only
place you use the POP account name and password is in your email program settings.
For multiple Email accounts, Outlook Express is by far the best email program.

If you want both email accounts to be within the same Outlook Express window, follow the directions
below. If you would like each person to have their own instance of Outlook Express and be completely
separate, use Outlook Express Indentities. Click on File | Manage Identites | New. Once you have established
a new Identity, the setup instructions are the same.
In Outlook Express, click Tools
| Accounts. Click the Mail
tab, then the Add button and then Mail.
Type your name for the Display
Name. Go Next. Type in your new email
address. Go Next.
Go Next. Type in your POP
account username (do not add @hevanet.com) and the password. Do not
check the SPA. Go Next and Finish. Back at the Internet Accounts, you should
now have two mail accounts. Highlight the one you just made and click the
Properties button. At the top, change the mail account name to your new
POP account username. Click OK. Click Close.
Now that you have your new account configured, you can get fancy and
use Outlook Express's Message Rules to sort your emails to different folders.

folder" button. Type the name of your new account and click OK. Click OK
In the #4. box, change the message rule name to your new account name.
Click OK and OK again.
When you compose new messages or reply to current messages, you should
have a choice of email addresses to choose from in the FROM: field
of the message. Just pick the address you want.
With Netscape Communicator, you can set up an entirely different Profile

Group on your Windows Start Menu.
Click the New button. Go Next. Type in your name and new email
