  8. When prompted, enter your user name as "scs\<user>," where "<user>" is your SCS Windows Domain account name, and enter your SCS Windows Domain password, then click "OK"

    Note: The "Remember password" option is not secure, and we don't recommend it. With that box checked, anyone who can access your computer can then read your e-mail and send mail as you.

  9. Finally, you will see a "Congratulations!" screen indicating that your account has been set up. Click "Finished" to complete the process.
