Hi, i am Christine. My internet connection (comcast) was installed just few
days ago. I would like to use the Windows Mail but don't know how to
configure it so that I will be able to use it. I would like to use my Yahoo
email account. Can anyone help me with the set up process? Or at least give
me some advice on what to do or where to get assistance with this? By the
way, what is a POP3? MSTP? ISP number? Where do I get these info? Thanks
for your help. =)

If your main email account is the free one (you@yahoo.com),
that is web mail, and you'd probably be better off using
Windows Live Mail Desktop:

Windows Mail is for non-web mail, and it requires
account settings you get from your ISP (Internet Service
Provider), which would be Comcast for you. If you want
to set up your Comcast email account in Windows Mail,
your ISP has instructions here:
