I've you've got broadband you're wasting you money dialing up to collect mail.
In Outlook goto accounts & (i'm guessing here, as I don't use Outlook) and navigate until you find the connections dialogue, select your broadband connection here. This will then use you broadband connection to pick up mail.
You only need your modem now if you ever send faxes. Although it may be an idea to keep it incase your broadband connection fails (mine did for a fortnight due to a problem at the exchange that BT failed to spot)
