There is a difference between Internet connectivity and application
connectivity.  You WILL need to do some configuration - of the
application at a minimum.  But this is the usual types of tasks.

First and foremost, establish a network connection.  Make sure you can
pull up websites, ping by name and IP, etc.

Once you have that done, pick your mail client (kmail, thunderbird,
mutt, etc.).  Once you have that installed (and/or have it installed by
default), then you configure it.  Usually under Settings -> Configure,
or Edit -> Preferences or Accounts.  You need to specify the incoming
and outgoing mail servers, as well as any user authentication
information.  Once done, email should be working fine.

Nucleus is "just another provider".  So, if you treat them like any
other network connection everything should go well for you.

HTH.
