(For help understanding and choosing between the two, see [https://support.mayfirst.org/wiki/pop_vs_imap this guide from our wiki].) Enter a '''Description''' that will help you remember what account this is. Enter your account's server address in the '''Incoming Mail Server''' field. This is the Server name that you choose when using May First webmail, all lowercase, followed by ".mayfirst.org". For example, if you select "Albizu" from the Server menu when logging into webmail, your incoming mail server is "albizu.mayfirst.org". You can also ask your organization's account manager or log into the May First Member Control Panel and check what your primary host is from there. Enter your account's username and password; again, these are the same username and password that you enter when logging into May First webmail.
