ximian evolution POP problems


I just downloaded Ximian Evolution 1.2.4 on my redhat 8.0 (I decided not to install it when I set up). When I set up my POP settings, I enter the POP server and by user name, but when it tries to connect it connects as :

But it needs to be:

But the problem is the POP server is Is there a way to make it ask for my username so i could type the whole thing in without Evolution filling it in for me?

muchas gracias
