We don't know what kind "this email address" is unless you tell us.
If it is a Hotmail address, you're in luck because Microsoft recently
enabled POP access for free Hotmail accounts.
Follow the settings given here:

Use port 587 rather than port 25 for the SMTP server.

Windows Mail's new account wizard is hard-coded to reject Hotmail
and MSN addresses. So, when you enter your email address initially,
use a fake one, such as (e-mail address removed). After the account setup is
complete, go back and correct your email address.
