I cannot set up my e-mail. I don't understand the whole server connection
from windows help and support. Please can anyone help me understand how to
start sending and receiving messages. :) thnxa.. E-mail server names. Mail is stored on your e-mail provider's server
until you download it. You'll need to know whether your e-mail provider
stores mail on a POP3 or IMAP server. For more information on e-mail server
types, see POP3, SMTP, and other e-mail server types.

You'll need the names of both your incoming e-mail server (such as
pop.example.com) and outgoing e-mail server (such as smtp.example.com). It's
also helpful to know if your server requires a user name and password when
sending mail in addition to when receiving it. If so, select the Outgoing
server requires authentication check box when setting up your account.

You start by telling us who your mail service provider is.
Each provider requires different server names and settings.
You get the correct mail server names from your mail provider.
Do you have an existing email address? If so, what is the part of
your email address after the @ symbol? That part represents your
mail service provider.
Your mail provider will typically have a web page that shows how to
set up an email program. If you need more help, tell us the name of
your email service provider. If you currently don't have an email
address, we can help with that also.
