Subject: Set-up Needed To Run Mailing List

I asked about software for Windows 3.1 the other day and though I realize 
this is hardly the base to run a mailing list from I am going to try SLMail 
at the recommendation of a couple of the list members. (Thank you to those 
who responded to my request).

Here is the problem I am running into now.  As I said I am running Windows 
3.1.  My internet connection is through a local provider (A.G.T.) who 
provides me with an e-mail address and some space to store a web page.  When 
I tried to set up SLMail it requested the following four addresses from me:
          Local Node:

          Local IP:

          Smart Host:

          Name Server:

Since this shareware has no support I e-mailed a request to my service 
provider for these addresses and the response I received was "This is 
probably referring to settings for email used on a direct LAN connection."

Do I need a direct LAN connection to operate a mailing list manager?

If not how can I find the appropriate addresses for the above.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
