5) Again fill in the next set of items as shown in the screen shot image (click image for large version). Unlike previous versions of the free Mail program in Windows, this one does not have a spot to enter server port numbers. The incoming server does not need one entered (the default is already 110, which is correct) but the outgoing does. So you will enter that as smtp.internet49.com:587.

6) In the final step, you just will need to uncheck the boxes for Require SSL for incoming email and Require SSL for outgoing email as shown in the screen shot image (click image for large version). Then you can click on SIGN IN and if all is correct, your email account will be set up and you can begin sending and receiving email in the Mail app.
