name should be the alias email account that you have been assigned.

will ask for your E-mail Server Names. Make sure POP3 is selected
for your incoming mail server. Simply enter your incoming and
outgoing mail servers, ie:
Mail (Pop3): mail.your-domain-name.org
Outgoing Mail (SMTP): mail.yourdomain-name.org
If you use the outgoing mail server that is provided by your website,
you run the risk of having your email blocked if the server gets
listed by SPAMCOP or any other Spam Monitoring server. You would
be better off using the outgoing mail server that your ISP provides
for you to use. So instead of using "mail.yourdomain-name.org"
you should use the smtp mail server from your ISP. You will have
to contact your ISP to find out what the outgoing (smtp) server
is called. Click Here to learn more about

If you desire,
you can add multiple POP3 accounts to Outlook Express, following
the same steps as you did for this first POP3 account.

unless you specify otherwise when composing an e-mail.
