Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): The server could not be found. i keep getting this massage when i try to brows the net


When you type any name, e.g, 'www.google.com', your computer "talks" to a DNS (Domain Name Server), which translates the string 'www.google.com' into at leaset one IP-address:

Addresses: 74.125.155.103, 74.125.155.106, 74.125.155.147, 74.125.155.104, 74.125.155.99, 74.125.155.105
Aliases: www.google.com

If your computer does not have a working Internet connection, it cannot "talk" to the DNS-server.

If you spell the name incorrectly, the DNS-server will report "cannot give you an IP-address".

Contact your Internet Service Provider, to trouble-shoot your Internet connection.

Or, check for a computer-virus on your computer, which could be blocking your attempts to "talk" to the DNS server.

I am unable to set up my incoming and outgoing mail on outlook express so that I don't get errors. I am trying to sync my outlook with my palm treo and my ipod touch. I am receiving my emails on my touch,...


You need to set up Outlook Express with the correct names of the servers for your particular email account. One server name for outgoing mail, and one for incoming. The following link lists all the majors web mail services and their server settings.

http://www.emailaddressmanager.com/tips/mail-settings.html

In Outlook Express, from the Tools menu, choose Accounts.
On the Mail tab, choose Add --> Mail..
Type a display name for your account. Hit Next.
Type your email address. Hit Next.
Using the above link, enter the required information for incoming and outgoing mail servers. Hit Next.
Enter the username and password for the account and click Finish.
(These windows may vary slightly depending on the type of account.)

Hope this was helpful. You'll want to tell Outlook whether or not to leave the email on the server or not (for you to access from the web at a different location perhaps).

Not as familiar with Treo setup, but there is most likely a settings screen to enter the same info as above.

Best of luck!

Hello

Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem


Error Message - 'The server name you entered can not be found on the network (it might be down temporarily). Please verify that you are online and that the server name is correct.'

The most common cause for this is the POP3 server is down at present, give it some hours and should be back online again

I get this error when trying to ''Send and Receive'' email using my computers Windows Mail. The host 'pop3' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account:...


It looks as if the server name is not complete. where is your email coming from? you'll need to know that and the email server (for example: mail.ptd.net for penteledata customers). Or, pop.gmail.com for gmail users. Get that server, then go into your account settings and put the server name into the Incoming Server blank. once you do that and save it (also make sure your outgoing server is correct) you should be fine.

I added my hotmail account to live mail, but it isn't pulling any mail. Isn't this an email client?


hotmail is also an email client...but you need to change the settings for your pop or imap server!!!

  1. select pop3 as your incoming server.
  2. type "pop3.live.com" under the incoming pop or imap server.
  3. enter "smtp.live.com" under the outgoing smtp server.
  4. make sure the outgoing authentication check box is done.
  5. type your full hotmail email address under the email user name(e.g chance@hotmail.com or chance@live.com).
  6. enter your hotmail password.
  7. make sure do not download email is not checked this time
  8. click finish and highlight the pop3.live.com account
  9. click properties and go to the advanced tab
  10. make sure this server requires a secure connection(ssl) is checked under both the incoming pop3 and outgoing smtp servers.
  11. type "585"under the outgoing server (smtp) and "995" under the incoming server.
  12. click ok and close.
you will be able to receive your emails for sure.

OUTLOOK email problem


Correct.
Outlook is not the problem here.
Report this problem to your ISP.
Its very likely that a setting must be changed on their end.
