1. If you don't already have a working email account in Courier, create an email account following the instructions in the Courier documentation and verify that it is working before setting up POPFile.
2. If POPFile isn't installed, follow the directions at Using POPFile on Windows Platforms
3. In Courier, select the email account you'd like POPFile to sort by finding the account under your mailbox. Select the mailbox on the left and then select the email account on the right side as in the figure below 1). Right click on the email account and select Properties… or select the account and hit Enter and then select the Mail Server tab.

10. Important! If POPFile isn't loaded, the mail will not get through - and your email program won't connect! see Troubleshooting Specific POPFile Issues for details on troubleshooting.
11. Set up filters to move email to a different folder (e.g. Spam). See the Courier documentation for details on creating filters.
