New laptop. Trying to set up Outlook which is loaded on the computer. I am trying to manually enter settings for incoming and outgoing mail, etc. I do not remember or have on my password/user ID list...


You call your internet service provider--the company that you use for mail. They will ask you to identify yourself and then can give you your username and password.
Your email address gives you a clue as to whom you deal with for email.

Server Error 553, ErrorNumber 0x800CCC78


(Outlook Express) Email is not configured to relay mail to address
Try this settings:

Outlook Express
  1. Click Tools then Accounts
  2. Click Mail
  3. Click Properties
  4. Click Servers
  5. In the Account Name field, it should be the first part of your email address (probably it's like this already).
  6. Put a checkmark by My Server Requires Authentication at the bottom of the page.
  7. Click Settings
  8. Select Log on Using
    • Type Account Name (which will be your full email address)
    • Type Password (which will be your email address password)
  9. Click Apply
  10. Click OK
  11. Click Close
This should fix the Outlook Express to send email, close Outlook Express and re-open it to start sending mail.

Microsoft Outlook
  1. Click Tools then Email Accounts (Accounts and Services on older versions of Outlook)
  2. Click View and Change and Click Next (skip if it opens up to the account screen)
  3. Click Change or Properties of your Email Account
  4. Click More Settings
  5. Click Outgoing Server
  6. Check My Server Uses Authentication
  7. Select Log on Using
    • Type Account Name (which will be your full email address)
    • Type Password (which will be your email address password)
  8. Click OK
  9. Click Next
  10. Click Finish

This should fix the Outlook to send email. Close Outlook and re-open it to start sending mail.

I am a new user, when i tried to send out going E-Mail I was directed to enter server info?


You need to look at the information that was provided by your ISP (Internet service provider). If you are trying to access through a client programs such as outlook then you need to find out from your ISP what the pop and SMTP addresses are so that you can enter them at that screen as well as the username and password that was provided with your account.

How to transport aol favorites to gmail


I presume that you mean contacts export from AOL, to Gmail, correct?

I am not on AOL any longer, so I cannot find out if they have an export function.

Gmail, however does have an IMPORT function.

Log in to your gmail account.
>>Top right, several to the left select settings
>> 2nd tab, accounts and imports..
What you need is the first option...

Also are you planning to use the online mailbox of Gmail, or a local client, like Outlook, Windows Mail, or Incredimail>>>>? If so you must turn on POP access, or you will not be able to connect... This is the 5th tab of the page you were last on (listed above, in settings).

Lastly if you are using a local client, often you cannot use the GMAIL outgoing mail server. Because of spam, internet service providers commonly require all mail going out to go through THEIR server....

Not a problem, if you use inline mailbox of gmail. because you are sending from there....

I cant receive my emails


You can't receive emails? You need to give more information. Are you using a Web mail (i.e. Yahoo mail, Gmail) or are you using an e-mail client (i.e. Outlook 2003/2007; Outlook Express)?

Email clients uses two types of account, POP3 and IMAP.

If you are using an e-mail client like Outlook 2003, you need to change the incoming mail server. Please follow the steps below:

For Outlook 2003/2007:

1. Open your Outlook and then click on Tools.
2. Go to Accounts or Email Accounts.
3. Go to Mail tab and you will see the account that you have created (like pop.gmail.com or imap.gmail.com)
4. Double-click on pop or imap account and then go to Advanced tab.
5. You will see the Incoming Mail server.

By default, the incoming mail server is set to 110, you may change it to 995 and then select SSL. Then close and reopen your Outlook and click the Send/Receive button.

Now, if you're just using a Web e-mail like Gmail or Yahoo mail, you need to check your storage. There's a possibility that you reached the quota storage of your email that's why you are not receiving emails. You need to contact your email provider for this problem.

If you have a router on your network, you need to check the router settings and perform a Port Forwarding. You have to open the port 110 or 995 so that you could receive e-mails.

These are the things that you need to check and consider.

Have a great day!

Can't download outlook can't send e-mail


Right click on the letter
drop down to SEND TO: mail recipient...(that's it-address and send)
If you have Outlook Express is the baby (free) that comes with Windows Operating System...so if that is what you want, START->PROGRAMS->OUTLOOK EXPRESS ... now if you are talking about just plain "OUTLOOK" that is a program purchased in Microsoft Office Suite- Word-Excel-Publisher-Outlook-Access...like that
You do have your email set up to send-Yes...if no call your ISP (internet service provider) and have them talk you through it on the phone. You're paying for the service and they are usually pretty good at helping.
I hope I understood you and gave you some help.

More than likely your internet service provider has a website you can go to to check your personal e-mail online from anyinternet-connected computer. call them or check your manual they gave you for the address and then look for a link like webmail or mail or check mail.all you will need once your there is the same username and password you use to log onto the internet.
Thier phone number should be on your internet bill.

I can not recive or send emails. There is a block on my hotmail account for my emails.I would be grateful if this can be solved as i use this service to get jobs.thankyou


If you don't use your hotmail address for more than three months your account will be deactivated automatically in such a case you log through your MSN or windows live messenger with this same address and reactivate your hotmail if not possible you may contact msn authority to reactivate your account, they will do it if its not deleted account for some reason.

Are you using to access your mail via a network where there is firewall or proxy blocked for accessing hotmails and other mails.

If you got a stand alone machine and internet access please check your security setting and change it to low or medium and check its working

Outgoing mail problem


Email problems are normally an issue with either you email program configuration (SMTP Server settings) or you firewall settings. Neither of which are something Dell is going to support other than a best effort try.

What company is providing the email account?
Is your internet service with the same company?
What program are you using to access your email? Vista Mail? Outlook? Outlook Express?
Can you send email via the webmail application for that email provider?
