Just call your ISP's tech support and they will tell you the addresses for your mail account and walk you through setting it up. It is also probably on your ISP's webpage.

pop3 server=post office protocol ver server.
every mail server must have incoming mail box
address and outgoing mail box address.ISP(internet service provider) gave the above mail address to every user.so you can access the mail through outlook express(utility software).so you have to configure the mail account in the following way(tools>account>add>mail).

other adress
Brondband internet provider gave you a)gateway b)dns server c)host name d)domain name
if you configure in your tcp/ip propertise of your NIC.then you can easily acess your mail.

Hi

Do the following:

Open Outlook, and select Tools>Accounts and click Add. This will start the mail account wizard which you will use to access your POP3 account.

You will need the adress you use to access your email via the web. For example, if your mail address is mail.serviceprovider.com then that will be the address you need to type in. As you are accessing a POP3 server, you will also need to enter the SMTP address, which is often the same as your mail address - or it may take the form of pop3.serviceprovider.com (for POP3), or smtp.serviceprovider.com (for SMTP)

You will also need to type in your username and password to finish the wizard. Your email address may be firstname.lastname.serviceprovider.com, so your username is likely to be firstname.lastname.

You should be able to get help from sify's technical support if you do not know the details.

POP3 email is different to web-based email in that with web-based email you need to actually visit a web page to access your email. What POP3 allows you to do is to configure a mail client such as Outlook Express to access your email without opening the web page.

Good luck

First let me tell u what is pop3 and smtp
POP3 server=post office protocol ver server. This is the incoming mail server address
SMTP is the outgoing mail server

Open Outlook, and select Tools>Accounts and click Add. This will start the mail account wizard which you will use to access your POP3 account.

You will need the address you use to access your email via the web. For example, if your mail address is mail.serviceprovider.com then that will be the address you need to type in. As you are accessing a POP3 server, you will also need to enter the SMTP address, which is often the same as your mail address - or it may take the form of pop3.serviceprovider.com (for POP3), or smtp.serviceprovider.com (for SMTP)

You will also need to type in your username and password to finish the wizard. Your email address may be firstname.lastname.serviceprovider.com, so your username is likely to be first name. last name.
