    i have outlook set up at work, and i would like to set it up on my home computer, and my friend has asked for help with it too. but the part were i always get messed up is the servers part...the POP3 and SMTP or whatever, incoming and outgoing mail. and how do you get the correct info to put in there? is it based on your internet connection or what? i know its a basic question that i should know, but help is appreciated.

    hotmail can be used thru outlook. 1 of the options when setting up outlook is do you have an existing email account. say yes & supply who it is. i've seen that a few times with my customers.
