Setting up Outlook Express


Setting up Outlook Express

I'm trying to set up Outlook Express to receive my emails on my shiny new laptop but I'm having difficulties.

I follow the directions on the customer support page but I only get as far as doing number 4 and then I only get the option to finish. I can't get any further. I have followed the directions to the letter but my emails aren't working. I've sent two testers to myself but they haven't arrived in my Inbox.

What am I doing wrong??

I'm using windows XP home.

Thanks in anticipation of any replies.
