- Select 'Other'.
- 'Add Mail Account'.
- Enter your name/company name, the email that you wish to add, the password and click 'next'.
- Fill in the fields with the appropriate information. For incoming mail server, the host name will be 'mail.aa.net.uk', and outgoing will be 'smtp.aa.net.uk'. Ensure that you have entered the password correctly each time, and the 'Username' is set to your email address for the mailbox you are adding. Click 'next'.
