You may be stumbling over the terms.

 

"incoming server" is where you receive the email from. That will often have imap or pop in its name. The IT people at work should give you that server's name.

 

"outgoing server" is where you send the email to have it go out to someone else. That often has smtp in its name. The IT folks at work should be able to give you that as well. For some of my other email accounts, I use Comcast's SMTP server for outgoing.
