Setting up your Internet Service Provider's (ISP's) e-mail with your desktop e-mail client is useful if you want quick and succinct access to your e-mail account. Telkom Internet is an ISP that also offers e-mail services for its clients. If you have a Telkom e-mail address and want to set up the email properly on your home computer, then you need to know various settings provided by the ISP. Microsoft bundles an inbuilt e-mail application with each operating system, which allows you to set up your e-mail address with it.
