    IF it works sporadically, read on. If it simply never works, please clarify. Comcast just changed the frequency of timing to poll for new emails so I set it to poll once an hour instead of every minute, and when I'm curious in between I just hit 'send and receive' which polls on demand. Try increasing your time between polls to solve this.



    It certainly drove me nuts having a password field pop up every minute, but once I increased the time to 1hr I've not had it pop up since, unless I hit send-and-receive too many times in a row.

This means that your password for your email provider such as gmail is required. Outlook is telling you that it does not have the password that it needs in order to get into your email account.

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.

I just want to begin writing e-mails. I have my e-mail address now how do I get up the e-mail format to write to friends?. I have phoned my close friend to write an e-mail to me so that I can reply and...


Firstly, who is your email account with..? if your account is with your Internet service provider, ask them which email software they would prefer you use. Most providers use Outlook or outlook express which is installed with Windows so go to Start and click on the Outlook express icon in the start menu. If you have not already done so, outlook will ask you to enter your email details like your account or email name and password etc and once done, you will then be able to download and read your mail.. If you are using a third party email service like Hotmail or Yahoo, use whichever browser you have and goto their website and click onto their mail login, enter your login details and your email inbox will appear, click on the emails you wish to read and off ya go !!!
Have fun..

My son cannot get to his new email address


I am sorry but without more information I cant help you or him.
I need to know what kind of email address he has. Is it one of the cheapo free ones from google (gmail) yahoo or hotmail? Or is it a good old smtp email address that you would access from outlook express or windows email program?
windows xp and older used outlook express as a default email program. Vista and newer have a windows mail program somewhat inferior to the old outlook express.

Gmail, yahoo, and hotmail are all browser based and as long as you know your signin and password you can access it from any computer.

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.

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.
