K-mail Host

I have a problem in K-mail (version 1.6.2) (Using KDE 3.2.1).

When I open K-mail I get a dialogue box
""E K-Mail Could not connect to host localhost"

When I checked the settings I noticed that I have not put anything in the "Host" sections, sending & receiving.

Is this mandatory? Could you give me an example of what would go in there?

Normally this would be your ISP's mail server, I think.
