The email server settings are incorrect, Who is the email service provider for the email that is not functioning?

  • Ekse Mar 10, 2009

    Hi again,



    For a start, make sure your settings are correct.



    if your using outlook, You need to go into Tools, And then to Accounts. From accounts you need to select your account and click on properties.






    Then open the servers tap



    The servers are

    Incoming mail server (POP3): plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com
    Outgoing mail server (SMTP): plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com



    Also make sure the my outgoing server requires authentication is checked.






    Then open up the Advanced tab.


    Under Incoming Server (POP3), check the box next to “This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL)". The port number in the “Incoming Server (POP3)" field should automatically change from 110 to 995. If it doesn’t, make sure the port number is set to 995.


    Next Under “Outgoing Server (SMTP)”, check the box next to “This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL). Enter port number “465” in the “Outgoing Server (SMTP)” field.


    Also make sure that the box next to Leave A copy Of messages on the server. This will leave the messages on the website and you can read your email where ever you are instead only at your home computer. You inbox might eventually become full and you would eventually have to go in the webmail and delete some of the older messages from there, but the ones downloaded to your computer will remain there.

    If you receive a error message please send it to me with the add a comment link and include everything.

    Check if the box this server requires authentication must be checked or not, if that setting is incorrect the SMTP service will not work.

I am tying to set up yahoo account on thunderbird. i can send email but not receive.. i have tried changing server settings and port settings


Much more common is a sending issue. Often you have to send through your ISP server, contact them for what that server is, if you have sending issues.

I found directions for Outlook, which should be similar to Thunderbird:

Look closely at requires authentication settings....

Note: You must be a Yahoo! Mail Plus user to read Yahoo! Mail in an email reader program such as Microsoft Outlook. Click here for information about subscribing to Yahoo! Mail Plus.
To read your Yahoo! Mail Plus using Microsoft Outlook 2002 or 2003, follow these steps:
  1. From the Tools menu, select Email Accounts.
  2. Select Add a new email account and click Next.
  3. Select POP3 and 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, testing80@yahoo.com).
    • Server Information

      Incoming mail server (POP3): Type plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com.

      Outgoing mail server (SMTP): Type plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com.
    • Login Information

      User Name: Type your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com").

      Password: Type your Yahoo! password.
    • Select the Remember Password checkbox if you don't want Outlook to prompt you for your password each time you check your mail.
    • Do not select the Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) checkbox.
  5. Click More Settings. The Internet E-mail Settings dialog box appears.
  6. Select the Outgoing Server tab:
    • Select the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication checkbox.
    • Make sure that Use same settings as my incoming mail server is selected.
  7. Click the Advanced tab:
    • Under Incoming Server (POP3), select 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 Outgoing Server (SMTP), select 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, select 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 Finish to close the Add New E-mail Account dialog box.
  10. Click Close to close the Account Settings dialog box.
Troubleshooting tips
If you still can't send Yahoo! Mail from Outlook, you might be accessing the Internet through an ISP that is blocking the SMTP port. If this is the case, try using port 587 when sending email via Yahoo!'s SMTP server. To make this change:
  1. From the Tools menu, select Account Settings. The Account Settings dialog box appears.
  2. Select your Yahoo! Mail Plus account and click Properties. The Change E-mail Account dialog box appears.
  3. Click More Settings. The Internet E-mail Settings dialog box appears.
  4. Click the Advanced tab.
  5. In the Outgoing Server (SMTP) box, type 587.
  6. Click Apply, and then click OK to close the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box.
  7. Click Close to close the Account Settings dialog box.

How to setup push mail for samsung monte phone on gmail


I'm not sure if this is of any help
to anyone but these are the steps
I used to set up email on my
Monte. I'm using an old hotmail
account that didn't support IMAP
or SMTP properly.
1.Set Up a GMail account eg.
someone@gmail.com
2.Set GMail to allow IMAP via the
settings link the the top right
hand corner. (under Forwarding
and POP/IMAP)
3.Under accounts and import set
up the send mail as to send mail as
someone@hotmail.co.uk. Set this
to default send adress
4.In the same tab under check
mail using pop3 set up the pop3 to
recieve from someone@
hotmail.co.uk
5.Under Email Accounts on the
Monte set up email with the
following charecteristics:
Account Name: Hotmail
SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
SMTP Port: 465
Secure Connection: SSL
Incoming Server Type: IMAP4
IMAP4 Server: imap.gmail.com
IMAP Port: 993
APOP login: greyed out
Secure Connection: SSL
Download Limit: 500
IMAP4 incoming email: New
Retrieving option: Whole Message
Keep on server: checked
My email adress: someone@
hotmail.co.uk (This is the adress
the phone puts in the from line of
an email)
Username: someone@gmail.com
Password: gmail password
Pop before smtp: greyed out
SMTP auth: checked
Same as POP3/IMAP4: checked
Username: greyed out
Passowrd: greyed out
This should allow you to recieve
new messages from the time you
set up the gmail account on your
phone and to send emails with all
the appearences of coming from
your hotmail account while
actually coming from google's
smtp server. Really do check that
the GMail is set up properly, make
sure it recieves emails adressed
to your hotmail and that it sends
in your hotmail account's name.

POP3 CAN'T SEND USING THIS ??


hi...unless you've configured your email client (outlook, outlook express, etc)to use pop3 and smtp you wont be able to use this method for sending mails.....
aol acounts need to be configured for pop3 and smtp as do hotmail and gmail...each service has unique server names and there are pro's and cons to setting it up....your service provider will have the details of pop and smtp servers....a way round this would be to open your email and create new message and copy/paste the details you need into the new mail

Can not send e-mail


Have you made any changes to your pop3 server?. Look at your option in outlook it is under accounts. And check to make sure the server setup is right for your email. Most times the mail server and pop server are the same. Like
incoming pop3 (server whatever.com)
outgoing smtp( server whatever.com)

E-Mailing


This is because your server that you are trying to send email on doesn't support Pop3, SMTP, etc. Make sure it supports it first before attempting to enter it into Windows Live Mail.
