If Internet Explorer is working OK via the Belkin Modem/Router, there is nothing additional to configure for email.

Open Windows Mail and, from its menus, select "Tools > Accounts". In the box that opens, click the Add button and then just follow the wizard to set up your account. The details you need to set it up are:

- Your Name (as you want it to appear in outgoing mail).
- Your Email address.
- Your Account Username.
- Your Account Password.
- The ISP's SMTP (outgoing) mail server address.
- The ISP's POP3 (incoming) mail server address.
