    Setting up Outlook 2000 to recieve e-mail (Outlook 2000)

    Ok, I know this is really basic but I never used Outlook before. I just started using MSN as my ISP(although temporarily my e-mail is going to AOL). How do I configure Outlook to get my e-mail from MSN ? I go to Tools/Account/Add/Mail but I don't know if my incoming mail is POP3 or IMAP (POP3 I bet) ? How do I find my "Incoming Mail Server" and my SMPT sever for outgoing e-mail. I looked at the help files in Outlook and all it tells you is to fill in the blanks and that is not helpful. Any help is appreciated !!!

    You need to go to MSN and ask is the short answer. You will need to have set up an account with them with a user name and password. Your POP3 server will look something like "mail.msn.net" sans quotes and your SMPT will probably be identical. It will take you longer to find the page on their site telling you what you want than actually doing it (about 60 seconds). Good luck!
