ok, to start out, you need to open outlook, click on tools, and then select services.  From there select add, and internet e-mail account.  From there all you need to do is fill in the information.  You are going to need either you isp or your pop3 account information (like mail.xxxxx.com)  if you have any questions with the actual set-tp, let me know....

you still need to set up an account through outlook to check the mail.  click on tools, then on services, then on add, then on e-mail account.  type in the needed information.  Keep doing this until you have all the accounts you want to check filled out with the correct server information

you can do this with every e-mail account you have...say for instance that you have an account on netscape.com (like gifted@microscrap.com)  the information would look like this
under general info..
name XXXX
e-mail address: gifted@microscrap.com
reply address: gifted@microscrap.com
under server infromation..
outgoing mail mail.microscrap.com
return address gifted@microscrap.com

you can continue doing this with all your different accounts.

I have attempted your suggestion from Thursday to all additional accounts, but only have the option to add: internet mail & get message that this option has already been setup.  I understand your instructions, just cannot get there. Can you give further assistance. Thanks!

hmmm...that is really odd.  Question for you, do you know what version of Outlook you are running.  You might want to download the latest and greatest version of this program.  You should be able to set up all the accounts that you have avalible (except something like xxx@juno.com xxxx@hotmail.com)
