open outlook express and click on Tools, then Accounts, then highlight your email account and then click Properties.
Now be sure the details there are correct.
POP Server name will be the name of the email server for your ISP. For example it might be pop-server
Next POP User name is the name you want to appear on all outgoing emails (your name)
Then you need to enter your password and then after you have done that, click the Advanced tab and make sure the port is set to 110.

Hope this solves your problem.

One more thing, below where you just set the port to 110 you will see Server Timeouts. Set the slide to Long 5 Minutes. This should prevent timeouts when downloading large emails.
