For the others your best either phone your provider and find out OR try to figure it out yourself :) let's say for slingshot i'd try: pop3.slingshot.co.nz or pop3.slingshot.net.nz, same with smtp

:)google is a usefull tool, i tell ya :) and yeah, pop3 - incoming. Smtp - outgoing. However if you use OUTLOOK as your email client, in settings it does specify INCOMING server POP3 and OUTGOING server SMTP :)

Most ISPs can safely accept mail.isp.co.nz for incoming and outgoing.
