Computer Question regarding Microsoft Outlook 2000

I recently loaded Microsoft Office 2000 on my computer. One of the items on Microsoft 2000 is Outlook which is a calender/contact list/email/etc program. I would very much like to use the email function. However, when I try to put my info in it on the 3rd screen it starts asking me about what my incoming and outgoing mail servers are? I have know idea what this means and what I should enter?

Any help would be appreciated.

it depends on your mail server i.e the service that provides you e-mail access.

An example: if you are using Outlook to d/l messages from your, say, Myrealbox e-mail account, here's what you put in:

Incoming mail:
Outgoing mail:

If you're not sure, do email your service provider.

yeah, what foray said.

when you sign up with your isp, they should provide you information on what your incoming and outcoming servers are. i have found they're generally pop3 for incoming and smtp for outcoming. and those might or might not be featured in the addresses you plug in. good luck!
