over at howtoforge there are walkthrus on setting up imap, pop, etc for various distros(since you didn't list you distro!!!). It is a little to complicated for someone to write the how to here in a response to you, but if you follow the instructions you should be fine.

I'm using Fedora as a distro, I acutally just figured out you can use IMAP with evolution so thats what I configured for. Thanks for the quick reply. I really appreciate it. I have one more question. I have a network drive attached to my router. Do you know how to map that drive under linux so I access it.
