  3. Comcast incoming outgoing server

I have been using a Comcast email on a Windows XP desktop. How can I set up the same on my Windows 7 laptop? Someone told me that I need to put in Comcast incoming and outgoing mail servers. What are these? Can my email to be accessed from both these computers – is that possible? Apologies for all these questions but I am quite confused as to what has to be done.
