OK. Will try to gather everything in one post

First maybe you do now know what is the "name" of the server (for example smtp.yourisp.com) and you NEED to know that.

Once you know that "name", you press Start, Execute, cmd.exe and press OK

Then you type     '  ping smtp.yourisp.com   ' (replace with your own)

The IP will be repeated until you hit CTRL-C. Copy it somewhere.
