Steve and Jeroen:

I have followed the procedure, loaded the two required packages and
restarted TB. I am now to the Setup, (quoted Below). I can not find "
WebMail options, on the server panel".  I would belive this is in TB, but I
can not find it.

I'll assume you have installed the WebMail extension and at least one of the
optional components, if you haven't please do so. 
first step is to check the WebMail extension is running. Go to the WebMail
options, on the server panel the status of the three servers is displayed.
The status for the enabled server(s) should be "Running". If the WebMail
extension fails to start this could be due to the operating system blocking
ports below 1024, try setting the port to value higher than 1024 and restart
