I have Windows 7 and Windows live Mail. I have been having problems with WLM so I thought I would try Outlook. My E Mail is (@Bellsouth.net ). Outlook wants a IMAP server and ATT uses POP 3. So that won't work. Which E Mail programs use POP 3 ? We can't very well change our E Mail address.

What version of Outlook are you using?


I have yet to see one that will not allow you to set up a POP account if you do the setup manually.  Most of the newer versions will attempt to automatically set up IMAP access, but the databases should be accurate for companies that still only support POP3, such as Yahoo.


One of the tutorials returned by this DuckDuckGo search:  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Set+up+POP+email+in+Outlook&t=hz&atb=v33-7__&ia=web

should get you the information you need to set up your e-mail under Outlook.
