I know I'm supposed to use pop.charter.net for incoming mail and smtp.charter.net for outgoing mail. Yet when I make sure those things are in the correct fields it asks for, it still cannot connect.
Most likely you missed out some fields or any other setting. (e.g. password)
If you can, write down all the settings from your PC (Outlook or Thunderbird), and use the same setting in Mail.app (or any other mail app in Mac OS X), you should be all right then.
Some email servers won't allow more than one connections at the same time. (Which means you might need to quit the mail application on PC first.)
Otherwise, you might want to check charter.net for how to make settings.
