    More info. Some ISP's block e-mails, Torrent related e-mails are blocked by many ISP's. Can you receive any e-mails at all?

You need to contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and ask for your POP and SMTP settings so that you can check your Outlook details. This could also be a username/password issue with your account which will need to be fixed by your provider.

Sometimes these sites have paid accounts for you to send more messages after the first conversation you have had with a user. Maybe it is that you have exceeded the free messages ? I am not sure could be something else. Hope this helps

IMAP or POP3?


Do you have an email address that you want to setup on an e-mail client like Outlook or in your newly bought mobile device like iPhone or Blackberry? And when you are about to do this you are asked to choose if you want to setup your email account via POP3 or IMAP? and you don't know what to choose? This tip will help know more about this two types of setting that are commonly used for email clients and mobile devices that supports messaging.

First of all let's talk about POP3, this stands for Post Office Protocol version 3. Yes, this is the latest version of this protocol. We won't really get too technical in this tip. I will just give you ideas on how this will work to better understand which one to choose between POP3 and IMAP. Now a days, if someone says "I POP my mails from the server" he/she is saying that he used POP3 to download mails from the server. POP3 was initially created for users who does not have a permanent access to the Internet, like dial-up. POP3 will download all of your mails from the server, delete the messages from the server, and close the connection. All of the message downloaded will all be store in inbox and even if the user is off line, the user can still check the downloaded messages without getting online.

**The server that we are talking about here is what we also call as web mail.

Though POP3 deletes all downloaded mails from the server (web mail). Most e-mail clients will give you an option to leave a copy of the message on the server. This will make sure that even if you "pop" you mails, once you log back in to your web mail the same messages are still in there. To make it short and simple POP3 will only download all of the message and put in to the inbox of your e-mail client or mobile devices.

IMAP or Internet Message Access Protocol. This protocol almost works the same as POP3. The only difference is that it will not download all messages from the server in to your inbox. IMAP is also called the "mirror" for your e-mail client and the server. What you will have on the server (web mail) will be available on the client or mobile device. This idea applies to this example. Let's say you have sorted your e-mails on your web mail, you created folders to categorize the messages that is getting to your inbox. Once you setup IMAP in a e-mail client or mobile device you will see the folders and you will also have an option on your e-mail client and mobile device to subscribe to these folders that you have on the web mail.

This is pretty much having the same format from the server to your e-mail client or mobile device. This will also save you from the agony of sorting your mails since they will show up on your e-mail client or mobile device same as how they are set on the server. Another thing that is not found in POP3 is the way messages will be removed the server. Once the user using IMAP deletes a message, it will not be immediately get deleted from the server unless the user explicitly delete them, this is done by using the purge option.

I hope this enlightened you a bit to choose between the two.

How to change settings in Outlook to delete message from server after downloading


Hi, follow the steps below. Don't change any of your settings since they already work, but when you get to step 7 this is where you check whether or not you want to remove the emails from the sever.

Open Outlook 2003 then:
  1. Click Tools ' E-mail Accounts.
  2. Select Add a new e-mail account and click Next.
  3. Select POP3, then click Next.
  4. Enter the following information:
    • User Information
      • Your Name: Type your name as you'd like it to appear when you send an email message.
      • E-mail Address: Type your Yahoo! Mail Plus email address (for example, jo.bloggs@yahoo.com).
    • Server Information
      • Incoming mail server (POP3): Type pop.mail.yahoo.com
      • Outgoing mail server (SMTP): Type smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    • Login Information
      • User Name: Type your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com").
      • Password: Type your Yahoo! password.
    • Check the Remember password checkbox if you don't want Outlook to prompt you for your password each time you check your mail.
    • Do notcheck the Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) checkbox.
  5. Click the More Settings button. The Internet E-mail Settings dialog box appears.
  6. Select the Outgoing Server tab:
    • Check the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication checkbox.
    • Make sure that Use same settings as my incoming mail server is selected.
  7. Select the Advanced tab:
    • Under "Incoming server (POP3)," check the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox. The number in the "Incoming server (POP3)" field usually changes automatically from 110 to 995. If it doesn't, type 995.
    • In the Outgoing server (SMTP) field, type 465. Under it, check the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox.
    • If you want to save your Yahoo! Mail messages on both the Yahoo! Mail server and on your computer, check the Leave a copy of messages on the server checkbox. If you want your messages to be deleted from the Yahoo! server once Outlook has downloaded them onto your computer, leave the box unchecked.
    Note: After your messages are deleted from the server, we cannot retrieve them.
  8. Click OK to close the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box.
  9. Click Next and then Finish.
  10. Close and restart your Microsoft Outlook.

People from my address book have been receiving messages sent from my email address but I am not the one sending them! These messages do not register in my sent box. Has someone got hold of my account...


It could be possible as more and more people are complaining about hacks these times. To avoid any security trouble you should change your password and maybe your additionnal e-mail address (if you have an other one) password.
Try to find something difficult to find with numbers/letters and without any link to your personnal life/informations.
If after that your address book still receive email from your address but not you you should think about changing all your passwords/email addresses or to contact yahoo support.

Sending email messages


this doesnt make sense as you wouldn't be able to send or receive. If you ave an antivirus programme check it's not scanning your message then putting it in the outbox. If you have changed your service provider recently but kept your old e mail address then the smtp settings are incorrect in your email send settings and may also require server authentication, although your pop3 receiving account may not need to change.
