> Hello,
> I am trying to help a friend who has been given a pc with Mandriva on it.
> It has Open Office and Kontact as an email program.
> I am completely familiar with setting up mail accounts in both Outlook and
> Outlook express but have never used Kontact.
> I do have all the “Outlook” settings (server details, password, POP3 and
> SMTP settings etc).
> What is making it more difficult for me is that I have to do it all in
> French which is not my native language!
> If you can tell me if it is as simple as Outlook to add an account and what
> Kontact calls accounts etc I should be able to figure it all out.
> I hope you do not mind me asking you this, and thank you in anticipation of
> any help you are able to give.
