Step

Go to http://rr.com/. Have your account number ready. You will see a pulldown menu. Select your state. You will be directed to the page for your regional division of Time Warner Cable. The regional page will allow you to create a new account.

Step

Click on the "Self Care" link. Choose an account name and password. If the name you choose is already taken, add a number or letter to it until you find one that is not in use by someone else. Your chosen name plus "@yourstate.rr.com" will be your new e-mail name.

Step

Start email software. If you use Windows or Outlook, go to the "Tools" menu and click on "Accounts." If you use Apple, go to "Mail Menu" and click on "Preferences." Then click on the "Accounts" icon at the top of your window.

Step

Enter the following fields: Email server: POP3 Incoming (POP) server: pop-server.domain.rr.com Outcoming (SMTP) server: smtp-server.domain.rr.com Username: Your e-mail address without the "@yourstate.rr.com" suffix Password: the password you set earlier

Step

You don't need to select authentication for SMTP server or any advanced security.

Step

Use any special features that interest you or suit your email needs. For example, you might want to create special files for certain emails or a signature that will appear at the bottom of every email you create.
