Im trying to set up microsoft outlook or windows mail (whatever its called)for the first time, and i dont know how to find my incoming/outgoing servers?? Im sure this is really basic to most people, but computers are not my strong point. I've opened a windows live ID as suggested but cannot get any further. Something about pop3, imap and smtp. ANY help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance ...

Different set up for which email address you wish to use:

I.E. if you set up yahoo the pop3 is: pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk
ntl is: POP3.ntlworld.com

I dont have the smtp (which is the outgoing server) for yahoo however the NTL one is: SMTP.ntlworld.com.

I have both emails Yahoo and Ntl coming in to outlook but every email I send is through Ntl this way.

Will see if I can find a basic set up page somewhere online. Are you a novice on pc's or have reasonable knowledge ?

Is this an ex-corporate computer? for simple mail you shouldn't need (or have) a Microsoft Exchange Server.

If it is ex-corporate and not been reconfigured, you may not have access rights to set up a connection.
