I have a Notebook PC with Windows 7 OS. I need to get Microsoft Outlook E-mail and in filling out the blanks, they're asking me for my incoming and outgoing mail servers. Where can I find them?

Hi,

 

It depends on the type of account you have if gmail, hotmail, yahoo, from Internet Service Provider, etc. usually the e-mail provider should have some help page with the information needed.

 

Don't post your e-mail but tell us what you have after the @ in your e-mail address.

yahoo

 

Two options:

- using the POP3 protocol, the e-mail is downloaded from yahoo servers and kept only in your computer.

- using the IMAP protocol, the e-mail is stored on the yahoo servers and the client will work directly on the server, better option if you want to access the e-mail from different devices.
