Here are the instructions from mediacom's website http://www.mymediacom.tv/help/read/publisher_02/2002-01-28.01

Not having an account with them, I am unable to verify that this works correctly.  The steps below assume you are running in Internet Mail Only.  If you are running Corporate/Workgroup you would click TOOLS->SERVICES and add an Internet E-mail account, then configure it the same.


Configuring Microsoft Outlook

Microsoft Outlook supports SSL when using both the POP and IMAP protocols to download and read e-mail. To configure Outlook 2000 to access e-mail via POP/IMAP and SSL follow these steps:

From the "Tools" pull-down menu select the "Accounts" panel. (in CW click TOOLS->SERVICES

Select the "Mail" tab.

Highlight the Virtual Server (or add your Virtual Server, if you need to) you want to get e-mail from. Set the server name to be the domain name on the SSL Digital Certficate installed on the Virtual Server (for example, mail.mchsi.com).
Select the "Properties" button to
edit the properties for the Virtual Server selected.
Select the "Advanced" tab.
At this point you should see check boxes and fields that allow you to select SSL and change the port numbers for POP/IMAP.
If you are using the POP protocol select the SSL checkbox for POP and change the port number from 110 to 995.
If you are using the IMAP protocol select the SSL checkbox for IMAP and change the port number from 143 to 993.
