In the Description field you can enter information which will help you identify the account. Once the information is entered select "Next". 

  

Step 8:  Here you will be able to select the account type, which would be either IMAP or POP, the difference between the two is POP downloads the email from a server to a single computer, then deletes the email from the server.

We would advise that you use the IMAP protocol.
