The "account name" is actually simply the email on the mail server itself.
Therefore, you simply have to configure auto-email retrieval.
This is done in two locations:
1) determines if the "account" in question is to be included with auto email retrieval (if IT is turned on).
Found under Tools | Options | E-Mail Tab | Accounts button. The auto-retrieve check box. (Note: it is generally recommended that you also check auto-delete if you are auto-retrieving. There are clearly exceptions.)
2) determines if auto email retrieval is turned on for your GM user ID.
Found under Tools | Options | E-Mail Tab | More Options button | Retrieval tab. Check the "Retrieve email every x minutes" option.
Hope this feedback helps.
Thanks for your help John. Much appreciated.
Glad to help, Chris.
