In the popup window click on the General tab at the top of the window. In the first blank type a name that will be easy for you to recognize this account. This name will not be seen anywhere but in the mail account list on your computer. If you have more than one mail box with a particular account be sure to name them in such a way as to distinguish them. Examples of names might be: Gertrude-site, info-site, support-site, George-ISP account. There is no rule on how to name your account.
If you are setting up alias accounts be sure to UNcheck the box near the bottom that says "Include this account....." (shown in picture below as #4).

Click Apply, then OK.

Using different email accounts

To access your new account, click on New Mail on your toolbar of OE. Your "new mail" window will look the same as it did before except that there is now a tiny black arrow to the far right of the "From" line. Click the arrow which will open a drop down box where you can choose (by highlighting) which account you want to use for this email. When you click on the address you want to use the drop down box will disappear and the address you chose will now display in the From window. You may now proceed as usual.
