It depends on what provider you use. it just happened to be for msn, but Verizon might use something else.
However, typically pop uses and smpt, mostly

I'll give that a try tonight. Did you type smtp. in the server name? as
the default is in my setup.

My ISP (Verizon) changed the rules for sending email. They now require
using port 587 to send email instead of the default port 25. I 
have made
the change on my 2 windows machines using Eudora 7 with ease 
but getting
Evolution to work has been a problem. It still received email but will
not send. I have changer the SMTP server name to include :587 
at the end
but still no luck. I am running Ubuntu 8.1o on the desktop and 8.04 on
the netbook with the same results.

Hi John,

I use port 587 on my Hardy 8.04 for an msn account.  (
But I do also use TLS instead SSL encryption to make it work. You might
want to try that. At first when I tried using SSL it didn't work.
Switching to TLS made it work.

Good luck

If your Email is at another ISP, you can retrieve with pop from
anywhere, but some ISP's don't allow Relaying, and therefore sometimes
block smtp to another ISP. You will have to use the SMTP server from
your active ISP. Or another option is using a google account to send
email. This way you can always send through the google smtp servers. 
or have your emails for your domain hosted by a hosting company as
godaddy, domaindiscover.... 

Don't know if I'm clear with my explanation.
