now this is reallly simple,
Contact your ISP ( the folks you paid to ask this)
Its probably 1-800-000-0000
Good luck.

What do you mean outlook account. Do you mean you want email from them cuz it only takes and existing pop3 email account then it allows you to view you inbox and send messages through outlook.

If I were you I would ditch outlook and go with thunderbird. It doesnt have all the messiness of outlook.

http://www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/

If you have a pop 3 account here is how you set it up.

Follow that but you have to use your own pop server settings.

to actually add the account to outlook, click on options in the tools menu and then click on the mail options tab (out look 2003) for outlook 2000 and below I think it was just the tools menu and the account option from that menu.
Though as Airiox said you should consider using ThunderBird, simply because of the amount of exploits there are in Outlook

Thumbs down z

Why is this so hard to understand ?
Outlook Express stares you in the face every time you boot to Windows,right or not ?
1.You pay an ISP to be here right now.This Forum.
2.Call them as they must configure Outlook Express so that it can transfer email to your desktop.You should be entiled to at least 1 account.
whhhheeeewwwwww.

Not realy, you pay for internet not email. If you need POP3 i can offer the following domains @insanitystrikes.net and @tektalk.net - 25MB free

Outlook is great,depending on your server and make it easy to block senders of spam.I repeat its part of you isp monthly fee.
Aside from that you have your end covered,
whomever you send to doesn't.
There are certain file types refused.eg:exe.
zip always works.
