    These instructions are not accurate with respect to obtaining the email settings using the Horde Webmail client, at least not for windows accounts. When the username is displayed, thee is no link associated with it. I cannot find the settings in any of the other menu items.

    Is there a way to obtain the settings in the Plesk panel?

    Other notes: This whole article needs to be re-written, the English is somewhat tortured and could use some help with grammar.

    Also the font color in this form/text box is an extremely poor choice. It is very difficult to read what I am typing since the color is too light.

    Suggest that you make some changes to the appropriate selector in your bootstrap.css file which is what I had to do in order to read what I am typing.
