You need to put the connection information for your IMAP and SMTP servers, if you are not sure what they are then you need to ask your email provider.

You said before that you dont know what informaiton to put in to test the IMAP and SMTP server connections, you need to tell RC which IMAP server it is connecting too, it is an IMAP client it needs a server to work with.
Roundcube Plugins: Contextmenu, SpamAssassin Prefs, and moreā€¦

Roundcube is not a mail server, it is just a web interface for IMAP mail server.

do you have a mail server already set up or are you expecting roundcube to be your mail server??

well i read up a bit on mercury, and it seems it is a imap/pop/smtp server all in one, so yes you would need to setup those 1st, do you have a database and web server running? (mysql & apache or something similar?), if not you might want to go and have a look at this site http://www.wampserver.com/en/.

cause you will need those to be able to install and run roundcube
