Apart from the fact that this sounds like preparation for an email harvester, most of these programs store the requested bits of information in plain text configuration files, so the first step for doing this would be simply installing those programs and looking at their config files.

The correct way would be to ask the user to enter their mail settings.
Most email clients encrypt the account details so that 3rd party programs can not do this.

I have the parameters for outlook express and msoutlook, and the others one must do it manually.
