POP3 is most likely what your ISP is using.
Setup will also ask:
incoming mail server - POP3
outgoing mail server - SMTP
username and password
In computing, local e-mail clients use the Post Office Protocol version 3 (POP3), an application-layer Internet standard protocol, to retrieve e-mail from a remote server over a TCP/IP connection. Nearly all subscribers to individual Internet service provider e-mail accounts access their e-mail with client software that uses POP3.MORE
If you really want to do the reading. But not necessary to get the setup going.
