They are okay for normal POP3 accounts. In addition to them, I would
want full name (in your case, "Massimiliano Calamelli").

Very simple example:

PrefsAccount *account;

account = prefs_account_new(); /* account is filled with default values */

/* modify members of account */
account->account_name = g_strdup("Test");
account->address = g_strdup("foo at bar.baz");
account->protocol = A_POP3;

account_append(account); /* append to internal account list */
account_write_config_all(); /* save all accounts to configuration file */

Sorry, not yet. Until then, please look at Sylpheed's code ;)
