- Username (if you want to have an email address , set the username’s value to linux)
- User ID: leave it automatic
- Real Name: required only for you to identify each account from the list
- Home Directory: Click “Directory” and set it to: /home/ where is what you set in the Username field
- Shell: Leave it as it is
- Password: click the “Normal password” and type your desired password (it will be encrypted on save/exit)

You will see few more settings/fields on the same form. You may fill them in if you like. However, the above mentioned fields are those required to have a valid e-mail account created.
