Well done for getting onto the internet too.
kmail is the email part of Kontact - Kontact is an all singing and
dancing personal information manager (PIM) which integrates a lot of
things, including email (kmail).
Initially in kmail you may need to use
(note that although you are configuring kmail, the window is called
configure kontact - it is part of the suite)
For this configuration the areas are
The important ones are identities and accounts, to get you started.
(then later, your email address)
(and set this as default)
(the host wil be something like popmail.cox.net - maybe - I am
guessing, ask your ISP)
(your isp account)
(host maybe like - smtpmail.cox.net - ask your ISP)
That is the basics. Hope it helps get you started. Linux is no
different to windows when setting up email stuff. Although the answers
you get to questions may include a lot more choice, and technical
information. Take it gently at first.
Good luck, keep in touch?
