 +===== Account configuration =====
  
 +To open Account configuration, open Account's [[profimail:context_menu|context menu]] in list of account, and choose Configure from command bar. ((Another way to open account configuration is from Menu -> Configuration -> Accounts and folders, and choosing account to configure))
 +
 +In the account configuration dialog, you can set these items:
 +
 +----
 +
 +==== Account name ====
 +This is name shown in ProfiMail.
 +
 +==== Email address ====
 +Email associated with account, used to send messages.
 +
 +==== Your name ====
 +Name shown in sent messages.
 +
 +==== Icon ====
 +Icon shown in ProfiMail in various lists.
 +
 +==== Color ====
 +Color of account, shown in some places with restricted space (e.g. in [[..:combined_folder|Combined folder]]).
 +
 +----
 +
 +==== Incoming and Outgoing mail server ====
 +Expanding these items allow to setup or edit server settings.
 +
 +=== Server name ===
 +Address of server.
 +
 +=== Server type and Port ===
 +Type of server ([[..:imap_vs_pop3|IMAP or POP3]]), and port. The port is set automatically, and in most cases you don't need to change it.
 +
 +=== Username / Password ===
 +Login data to access mail on the server.
 +
 +=== Test settings ===
 +There is Test button at end of account settings, which allows to verify if entered settings are correct for accessing your mail server.
 +
 +----
 +
 +==== Advanced settings ====
 +Here you can configure various details of the account, including [[..:check_mail|mail checking mode]], and other settings which meaning is described in the configuration dialog.
 +
 +
 +==== Identities ====
 +This allows to edit [[..:identities|identities]] associated with this mail account.
 +
 +----
 +
 +==== Auto-configuration of settings ====
 +When setting a [[..:op:new_account|new mail account]], you just enter email address and password, and ProfiMail finds best working settings to access your mail server. You can also change server type (IMAP/POP3) only when creating new account. Editing existing account doesn't allow to change server type.
