Configuring Outlook Express for Alumni Email.

I am having problems configuring Outlook Express for my Alumni email account. I use Outlook Express for my Comcast, Yahoo, Gmail and other email accounts with no problems. I know how to configure POP3 and IMAP in Outlook Expresss. The SHU Alumni Website for the email solution does not seem to provide enough details to configure Outlook Express correctly. Does anyone know what ALL the correct settings should be?
