I have Mailwasher and my screen resolution is set to 1680 x 1050 for use with my 21 inch widescreen monitor.
What size monitor screen do you have because 1024 x 768 is usually used for 15 inch monitors if I'm not mistaken.
If you have the free version you can only use one email address whereas the Pro version you can have more than one.
Here's how I setup my mailwasher program:
Although I cannot help you with some sections as I do not know what settings your email provider will use.
1: Go into SETTINGS
2: In the EMAIL ACCOUNTS section, click on the email address you have in there.
3: You should now have a window shown INCOMING MAIL, BOUNCING AND OUTGOING MAIL.
4: Ensure the Account name is your FULL EMAIL ADDRESS, your username, you enter your email address up till (but not including the @) so for example [email protected] blah.blah, the username would be joeblogs
4a: For my email provider I enter the pop3 server address in that section, but your email provider could be different, you would be able to find out the incoming/outgoing server address settings by either visiting their site or by looking on the net. I will add that if you are using the free version of Windows Live Hotmail you are not able to use a program like Mailwasher to handle your email.
5: Ensure your password is correct.
6:In the BOUNCING AND OUTGOING MAIL, enter in the EMAIL ADDRESS section your full email address. In the SMTP SERVER ADDRESS you will need to enter your smtp server address that your email provider uses.
