Most ISPs use standard settings for their POP and SMTP servers. If in doubt, trial and error works wonders
Find an email client that you are comfortable with (if you want a drop-in replacement for Outlook, then I'd recommend Evolution. If you are looking for something really light-weight (loads fast, works on low-end machines, etc) then I can highly recomment Sylpheed). Once you've got yourself an email client, then you setup the email account. You would normally need to know the pop and smtp server addresses/names, but since all decent email clients allow you to change your settings at any time, you can try a combination of the following:
POP server address: pop.ISPNAME.com or
SMTP server address: mail.ISPNAME.com or
Obviously you should use your ISPs name, using the above verbatim would just be silly
You should use the username and password that you use to connect to the ISP. If you're on dial-up then that'd be the same as what you put into kppp/gnome-ppp/wvdial/whatever. If you've already established an Internet connection and you can browse, then you should already know these
Hope this helps.
