4.A new menu will pop up titled “Internet Connection Wizard”. It will ask you your name first. Type in your name and then hit the “Next” button.

5. The next window that will pop up asks for your email address. Type in your TCBMAIL address. Click Next.

6. Next you will get a window asking for your “Pop3” and “SMTP” server names. For both, enter tcbmail.com
