  2. Each mail provider or ISP has their own set of mail server settings,
    which is why you need to consult their website for instructions.
    If you tell us who your mail provider is (the part after the @ symbol
    in your email address), we can give you more tailored advice.

    POP3 is not a valid server name. Ask your email provider (who is
    probably also your internet provider) for their instructions for setting
    up to use their email servers. If they haven't written instructions for
    Windows Mail yet, their instructions for Outlook Express should
    also work under Windows Mail as long as they don't call for using
    the HTTP protocol. The instructions should be somewhere on their
    web site. Or, if you need help finding the instructions, you could ask
    on this newsgroup and find more people who will recognize their
    instructions if they find them:
