I tried to add my ISP's pop3 email account, but I don't see any option to do that.

Am I missing something?

    Use several different computers during a day, so specs are irrelevant.

WORKS FOR ME, AND HERE’S HOW. (Not an expert, but this is what I did, and I can send and receive emails through my pop3 server (which is Cox, in Arizona).
Got a new Lenovo G580 (basic Laptop with Windows 8, installed Micro Soft Office 2010 (which I had on my old Laptop. After it installed, went to Outlook, followed the directions and, well like I said it works.
Hope this helps everyone, at least the the one’s with Office 2010……………
