You can use Hotmail to send and receive e-mail from other accounts. To get started, enter an e-mail address below.

Lets assume your name is fred and your plusnet account name is stathe
Your email address would be fred@stathe.plus.com
POP3 username will be stathe+fred
Your plusnet account password
Incoming mail server is mail.plus.net
Port: 110
Leave SSL unticked
Leave a copy on server, your choice. You would tick yes if you wanted to collect your email from two different machines for instance. One at work, one at home?
You haven't mentioned an outgoing mail server (SMTP) It's relay.plus.net on port 25
Hope this helps

Great advice SoulBriski, but the username would just need to be, in your example, stathe, if it is the default email address. The only time you need to add +fred is if fred was an additional mailbox.
@stathe a good idea is to follow the plusnet help guide for setting up your email client which can be found here: http://www.plus.net/support/email/setup/index.shtml?supporta=emailsetupguides
Hope that helps  Smiley
