The first time you run Pan, a Configuration Wizard appears and prompts you for your name, the SMTP server name, the NNTP server name, and the name you want to use to identify the connection. (In the example shown in Figure 8.17, we use Plus Net.) After the wizard is finished, you are prompted to download a list of the newsgroups the server provides; this might take a while. If you need to change the news server or add an additional server, you can access the Preferences item under the Edit menu to bring up the list of servers. Then you highlight the appropriate one and click Edit to change it or just click the New button to add a new news server.
