    Hey i have a new PC, but i would like to keep using my old email address from outlook express. Now, i tried to set it up but i had no clue what i was doing, i dont know what POP 3 is and things like this. I have been going to comcast on the web and checking my mail, but i know i can use outlook instead, i just dont really know how to set it up, anyone know of a tutorial or can walk me through?

    thanks!

    have a look here

    basically you need to know
    the mail pop server and the smtp pop sever
    it may simply be
    mail.comcast.com
    smtp.comcast.com
    should be on the website somewhere

    just follow the wizard
