  27  1. Once activated, go to "Settings > MailPress", fill and save the settings for each tab (General, (Connection to your mail server), Test, ...
  28  1. Once everything is set, use the Test tab in "Settings > MailPress" to validate your settings (your first mail with MailPress)
  29  1. You can also install the MailPress widget on your front page : "Appearance > Widgets".
  30  1. Just browse the different MailPress admin screens, read the help in the help tab for each screen.
  31  1. 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).
