The name box is the one you get to by:
Kmail / settings / configure / network / sending / modify / general.

that's not supposed to be your name, that's

Boy, this network stuff is frustrating.
I have only one ISP and email that I am trying to set up.

All of the windows that show lists have only one entry.

I do have the whole thing.

I found some stuff in Yast, but it looks like it is ok - but I don't know
what I 'm doing, apparently. I didn't mess with any of those settings.

I attempted to sign up for the Suse online support, but that doesn't want
to work either. I filled out the form, but didn't get an email with a
password. Used a link on the web page to contact them. A few days later I
get a reply, saying go try again. I get the same error that my user name
is still in use. Send a reply to let them know, and still no reply. I
paid real money to get support, and this is not what I call support. I'll
try another user name and see what happens.

Thank you,
