    If it's not configured, it will ask you on startup. Off memory, I think it's in Tools --> Accounts.

    Then just follow the prompts and work out what you POP or IMAP settings are. Thurana mentioned it for Gmail, below are the settings for Hotmail.

    Incoming POP server
    Incoming POP mail port 995
    POP SSL required Yes
    User name Your Windows Live ID (for example:
    password The password you use to sign in to Hotmail
    Outgoing SMTP server
    Outgoing SMTP mail port 25 or 587
    Authentication required Yes (your Windows Live ID and password)
    TLS/SSL required Yes (select TLS if available, if not select SSL)

    Hi vicky,

    Assuming that you want to set Outlook for GMail, they have the complete tutorial here (for many other email clients also):

    With slight modification, the tutorial can also be applied to other email services out there.
