2. Auto hand import

Before i start to explain the setup of the auto import folders let me explain that it's not suggested to set your hand histories destination directories as auto import folders.
Depending on the number of sites, game, stake etc. you are subscribed to you may receive a huge amount of hand histories every day.
The problem with the auto import folders is that they're used by the HUD, too. This means your HUD will have to process all the files which is unnecessary. It can even make your HUD to freeze.
For the sake of completeness we are going to mention that option here, too.

On the Home tab, click Site Setup.

The Site Settings dialog shows up. There is section for every poker network/client.
