I have an account at college named jelliott@hurstpierpoint.w-sussex.sch.uk
My school uses pavilion as it's provider.
How do I read my mail from this account. I have the pop address of the school but not the pavilion server. HELP. I've tried nearly everything I can think of.

you need to know the ip address of the colleges pop3 mail server.
When you have this you will need to know your login name and pop3 password.It is then quite easy to configure these into your email program.

Find the inbox item on the win 95 desktop and right click on it.
go to its properties and and highlight internet mail then click on properties (if internet mail is not there click on add then follow your nose). Within the properties for internet mail fill in the ip address of your pop3 mail server then type in your username and password (case sensitive usually). Then go to the connection tab and tell the s/ware whether you are on a network or using a modem connection. Hope this at least gives you a clue.

Incedentally if internet mail is not available to add as a service go to control panel, add and remove programs, windows setup tab,down to bottom of list(windows messaging) and click details , tick internet mail , click ok.
