    ... some of us just do not know how to do it.  Could those of you
    that are using some mail client in Emacs on w32 ...

Microsoft is a corporation that endeavors to restrict both your
economic freedom and mine.  By that decision it has decided to require
either that I behave illegally or that I transfer resources to it in a
non-economic fashion.  I have not done either and cannot help you
directly.  But in GNU/Linux, here are the RMAIL and mail setting that
I specify in my .emacs file.

You might adapt these:

  ;; Specify local inbox
  (setq rmail-primary-inbox-list '("/var/mail/bob"))

  ;;   (setq rmail-primary-inbox-list '("po:bob:fp.gnu.org" "/var/mail/bob"))
  ;;   (setq rmail-pop-password-required t)
  ;;   (setq rmail-pop-password "XXX")
  ;;   (setq rmail-preserve-inbox nil)

  ;; Set this value so that the From field is correct
  (setq mail-host-address "address@hidden")

  ;; You must also set `user-mail-address' so that the From field is correct.
  (setq user-mail-address "address@hidden")

  ;; Set the `reply-to' field for mail so people don't automatically
  ;; reply to root rather than bob when I am using root.
  (setq mail-default-reply-to "address@hidden")

  ;; Do not automatically delete a message after it is copied to
  ;;   another file using `o'.
  (setq rmail-delete-after-output nil)

  ;; Do not ask for confirmation when expunging
  (setq rmail-confirm-expunge nil)

  ;; Automatically display summary
  (setq rmail-display-summary t)

My mail-user-agent's value is sendmail-user-agent, which is the
