first question - outlook vs. outlook express? i have both on my computer. which should i use if my primary email is a msn account? is there a way i can have more than 1 account delivered to my outlook express?

also, going thru setup i come across the requirement for incoming and outgoing mail server (POP3, SMTP, etc). what are these and how do i find out what mine are??

thanks in advance.

outlook express is basically outlook without the calander, notes and all that other stuff. I use outlook at work and express at home.

POP3 stands Post Office Protocol.
SMTP stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol.
Your email program needs these to find out where it can send and recieve mail to and from. You can find these out by calling your internet service provider.
You could try though typing pop3.your internet service provider.com and smtp.your internet service provider.com Like my service provider is called wcoil so mine says pop3.wcoil.com
