PPP pane for phone modem connections

If you have a dial-up connection through your phone line, click the PPP tab (Point-to-Point Protocol, circled below) and enter the information directly into this dialog box. Enter the name of your service provider, the phone number they told you to dial, and an alternate (if they gave you one) in case that one is busy.

The account name and password, in this case, is your account name and password with your service provider. Sometimes these are different from your email name and password! You can change your email password whenever you like, but your account password for your ISP is given to you by your provider and cannot be changed unless you call them up and arrange it.
