Hi!

Rather than trying to walk you through every step here, I've located a tutorial for how to set up your email in Outlook. Outlook's email setup is very similar to Outlook Express's setup. The easiest thing to do is to use the email setup wizard under tools/email accounts in OE. Basically, the key things are to make sure that you enter your email address and PW correctly (the PW is case sensitive), then enter the correct settings for your POP and SMTP email servers. The article points out the correct names, but be sure to use the right RR region (like KC.RR.Com if you're in Kansas City).

Make sure you click on the plus sign next to

to be able to see the entire text section. If you get confused on anything, post back here.

Good luck and please let me know if this helps!

Free, Outlook Express sending solution?


Outlook Express, as well as other LOCAL CLIENTS may by blocked by your ISP. Spam is the issue, and to combat, most ISPs require mail to be sent through THEIR server. So, contact your ISP and ask them what the outgoing mail server should be and update your Outlook to that server.

Can't use either Microsoft Live Mail or Lookout Express v6 with Belkin Router. Can't send or receive email Can you tell me what the email setup is for either one? Both email programs probably use the same...


Ask COMCAST for the names of their POP-server and of their MAIL-server, and configure Outlook Express to use those names.

Microsoft Live Mail is "web-based" -- all you need to do is to web-surf to their web-site, login, and click "send/receive" or click "compose" and later "send".

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.

Email sound alert


That would be an option in your Email program. I am not familiar with Mac Setting but in Windows if you are using Outlook or Outlook Express there is a setting under Preferences in the drop down menu that allows you to have the computer play a sound when mail is received. If you are using a Web Based email service I am not sure you can do this. I know hotmail does not offer that option and I don't believe Yahoo does. The problem you will have if you are using Outlook or Outlook express is it only works if you are on a network. If your are using them through an ISP to access your email they only check to see if you have mail when you click the Send/Receive button. You can set Outlook to do this automatically based on time but that may degrade system performance.

I am unable to send e-mail on Windows Mail with my Vista Home Premium on my new HP computer, but it eas working fine before.


Yes, the first step is to tell us who your internet service provider is. Then we need to check your smtp server settings. This is located under TOOLS, ACCOUNTS, MAIL, PROPERTIES, SERVERS. This is assuming you are using outlook express for your email.

If you are using Outlook Express / Microsoft Outlook or any other email application you will have to set your email up first. The information is usually provided by the ISP. For quickest help it may be easier to contact your ISP's support line.

Transfering mail setup from Windows xp to a windos vista machine with EasySuite


I'm not 100% sure about vista because I hate it but I can help you copy all of your outlook express data to a CD\DVD disk & your address book. Your network settings for express account is a phone call to your ISP.
If vista's explorer is set up like XP you should be able to copy your data into outlook express.
Open all these folders on you XP system.
User name\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
Copy the Outlook Express folder to your CD.
User name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book. Copy Address Book folder.
Making sure you have everything.
Open, User name\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
Compair the two Outlook Express folder files. CD will not allow copy of same named folder.
If Vista's lay out is the same as XP than copy Outlook Express folder to Vista.
Suggest you have your current ISP setting /account setup before copying to Vista

Let me know if this works for you!
Good Luck & Kind Regards.
