Your username is your full embarq email address

Incoming mail server (POP3): pop.embarqmail.com
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.embarqmail.com

For mail programs such as Outlook Express :

  • click on the 'more settings' button in the lower right
  • Go to the 'outgoing server' tab
  • Check the box for 'my outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication'
When sending email from some devices you may need to use port 587 instead of port 25.
