I'm still having trouble.  It says "the mail server imap.hughes.net is not responding.  Verify that you have entered the correct account info in the mail settings."
I think i entered everything right.  Now what?

You may want to try this link: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201320

Check the section under "Add an account manually". It tells you how to get to the point where you can pick between POP and IMAP. Perhaps you just have to remove and re-add your HughesNet e-mail account to get it the way you want.
