hi,

look for the site your email acc. is registered on this site:
http://www.adamsdvds.co.uk/mailserver.php/

your mailservers are (most probably) listed there.

NOTE: if you don't live in the UK, the servers may be a bit different...

this doesn't make any sense. this is far too complicated for non-experienced users. i shouldn't have to go all the way to a forum for this kind of thing.

Hi,

Your ISP should be able to give you the address of the servers, it's often on the 'Help/Support' section of their web site.

It's the same as when you set up email with Outlook or Outlook Express in windows. No more complicated than that.

there is no easier way. All the experience you need for it is how to use google.
