Step 5: On this menu, there is some information that you would need to get from your IT department.  That information is the SMPT server name, the user name and the Password.  In the red box, you need to checkmark the mail function at the top right, and the A, B and C boxes of the email address you fill out. Put the email you are sending too as well as the username of the server.  In the Blue box, on the right hand side, fill out the information of the SMPT server and the sender address (which is the username of the server).  On the right hand side, check mark both boxes and fill out the username and password of the server.  After you have filled out everything, hit the ok button at the bottom of the capture settings menu to exit and save settings.
