  2. The mail server names are assigned by your mail provider or
    ISP. They will have a web page with that information.
    Or you can tell us who your mail provider is, and we can get you
    the mail server information.

  3. Most common causes of this:
    1. Incorrect user ID and/or password
    2. "My Server requires authentication" not checked when it should be
    3. Incorrect POP3 and SMTP server names
    In Windows Live Mail, when you set up a new email account, it automatically
    finds and sets up the email POP3/SMTP server names (sometimes). I prefer
    Live Mail (free download) over Windows Mail for many reasons, give it a try!

    Hotmail will not work under Windows Mail. You may want to
    download and install Windows Live Mail, where it will:

    http://get.live.com/wlmail/overview

    Yahoo.com accounts cost extra to work with either one:

    http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/original/mailplus/pop/pop-35.html

    http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/original/mailplus/pop/pop-08.html

    Instructions for Gmail:

    http://email.about.com/od/windowsmailtips/qt/et_get_gmail.htm

    http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=13273

    The instructions cover both the POP method and the IMAP method.
    Choose one, and don't get them mixed up.
