Note: Open Microsoft Outlook.  If you have never opened Outlook before you will be taken to the E-mail Setup Wizard (go to step 2).


Step 1:  Go to "Tools" and click on "E-mail Accounts..."


Step 2:  Click on "Add a new e-mail account" and then select "Next."


Step 3:  In the Server Type options, select "POP3" and select "Next."
