    Hi, I need help.
    First of all i just got a website with email addresses.
    Is this a pop3, imap, or http?
    Also when its decided which it is, in outlook it asks for the incoming mail server and for pop3 the outgoing.
    Please help

    Since, you cant really see what the info is, examples would be fine.
    The website it:

    www.sanitysdemise.com

    the mail url for the site is:

    http://webmail.registeredsite.com/agent/mobmain?mobmain=1

    Thanks a lot

    That's not really an easy question to answer. More than likely the ISP will have it's mail server name information available. It could be anything similar to pop.isp.com and smtp.isp.com to pop.yourdomain.com and smtp.yourdomain.com

    What that means is sometimes you get your own mail servers with your domain, sometimes you have to use the host email servers.

    It would more than likely be POP3, not IMAP. If they are both available, use POP3 because IMAP stinks.

    Check the F.A.Q.'s at the site that hosts your services, I'm sure it's there.

    Look at your web host's documentation. If they are good, they'll have a guide to setup your mail account with Outlook.
