If you will go to the website for whichever E-mail service you are using and look around for "FAQ" or "E-mail Help." you should be able to find complete instructions for setting up a POP E-mail account on Outlook Express. The better services will generally have step-by-step instructions, along with the correct server information and any other information you need. You may then use the OE account wizard to set it up.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
Im on Virgin, to add an email addy in outlook, go to tools, email accounts, add new account, click add... , then pop3, then fill in the boxes with your new addy and name etc. in the server info for Virgin its mail.virgin.net in both of the boxes, i would guess its mainly the same for most providers but im not to sure, you could always try it with a new email addy. HTH
It does vary. Some ISPs use for outbound POP.ISP.com and inbound SMTP.ISP.com Others like Cox are so big the have several regions. Example for outbound mail servers POP.central.cox.net and for outbound SMTP.central.cox.net. That is how my account is setup. We can figure all of that out when we know the ISP.
