    You mean link the account with the Mail application? Like using Outlook Express to read your emails.

    Ok, so the settings he needs will depend on who his email account is with. Do you know?

    if it is not a very well known email provider, you will need the pop3 address, and smtp address. you open "mail" which will be on the dock, or in the applications folder. you open that and click file >add account, and it should be self explanatory from there.

    edit: milessthomas beat me too it.
