  22  == Installation ==
  23  
  24  1. Before any installation, make sure you have a smtp server available (supports smtp (default) or sendmail).
  25  2. Have all informations to access to this server at hand.
  26  3. The installation process is like any other plugin.
  27  4. Once activated, go to "Settings > MailPress", fill and save the settings for each tab (General, (Connection to your mail server), Test, ...
  28  5. Once everything is set, use the Test tab in "Settings > MailPress" to validate your settings (your first mail with MailPress)
  29  6. You can also install the MailPress widget on your front page : "Appearance > Widgets".
  30  7. Just browse the different MailPress admin screens, read the help in the help tab for each screen.
  31  8. Now that you are familiar with this plugin, you can visit "Plugins > MailPress Add-ons" to add options to your plugin (may be you already did it to activate sendmail).
  32  9. I wisely recommand to activate add-ons one by one, and see what are the changes in the MailPress settings admin panel, in the help, etc ...
