Pop3 is for receiving emails and smtp is for sending.

What program are you using to send your email?

What does this mean (The host 'smtp' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Subject 'happy thanksgiving', Account: 'pop2', Server:...


When you want to send mail, your mail agent (e.g. Outlook or Opera Mail or Firebird) tries to authenticate with an SMTP (simple mail transfer protocol) server so it can send the mail.

You need to fill in the actual server name, account, port, and password for your ISP's smtp server so you can send mail. You receive mail via a different protocol, commonly pop3.

Cannot e-mail pictures. Error message says SMTP host not found.POP3 subject failed


You are apparrantly using outlook express and your email client is not properly configured. You need to revisit how to state your smtp address. It should go like smtp.aim.com. And pop3.aim.com. Ensure that the account type is set to pop3.

The issue is: Unable to Send/Receive emails from winThe host 'POP3' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'POP3', Server: 'POP3', Protocol: POP3, Port:...


You are receiving this error because of one of two reasons:
1) Your email account is not set up properly. Click on Microsoft Outlook, click on Tools, then Accounts. You will see a window with columns stating Account-Type-Connection. If an account is set up then click on it then click on Properties. Click server tab and you will see the SMTP server block and the POP3 server block. Both of these fields will read as follows: pop.XXXXX.net and smtp.XXXXX.net. Your Internet Service Providers name will be in the XXXX. If these are not set up properly then you cannot connect to send email. If they are filled out correctly then you need to call your Internet Service Provider and inform them of your situation. Their server is not working properly.

Don't forget to 4 star this solution.

hi Dtaillandier,
Please follow this link in which there are details of why you are not able to send/receive emails or why you are receiving errors.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/813514 this is for outlook/outlook express.

The socket 11004 error also means Valid name, no data record of requested type. The requested name is valid and was found in the database, but it does not have the correct associated data being resolved for.
hence try these steps,I would request you to reconfigure your Account settings for the email server.This should resolve your issue.
please revert for any questions : sanju_kumarbs@yahoo.co.in
Good Luck.
