Who is your email provided by? AT&T? Yahoo? Hotmail? Gmail?
You need to go to www.google.com and in the search box type your provider and search for the settings that should go with outlook express. For example if my email is provided through Yahoo. I would type in the search box "yahoo mail and outlook express". You will see how to configure the PoP3 and SMTP for sending and receiving mail through outlook.
Before doing all that it just seems like your problem might be that you have the wrong password in the outlook setup for PoP3. Edit your settings in Outlook and make sure you have the correct password. I think you click tools or edit when you have outlook open to get to the email accounts and edit the settings. Do this first and you can test it to see if it is working.
Which is ur e-mail client i.e. r u using outlook express or windows mail or windows live mail in order to send & receive emails from ur e-mail Id????
If yes then i think u might not have set the correct address of the SMTP server of ur mail client while configuring windows mail or outlook express or windows live mail on ur notebook-->SMTP server enables u to send e-mails-->anyways follow these steps to set the correct SMTP server address:
open the outlook express or windows mail or windows live mail-->Click on 'tools' option-->then click on the option 'accounts'-->a window will open with a list of accounts or only one account depending on the number of accounts u have configured with outlook express-->select the account from which u can receive mail but cant send one-->if u r not sure which account it is then most likely it would be the default one-->After selecting the particular account click on 'properties'-->properties window will open up-->select the 'servers' tab-->under 'server information' u will find 'outgoing mail(SMTP)'-->fill the proper address of the SMTP-->u will find the proper address of the SMTP server thru google also ensure that u have selected the 'My server requires authentication' checkbox on the 'servers' tab itself-->if u r using gmail then search for the SMTP address of gmail in google & same for the others also such as yahoo, rediff etc.
What antivirus/firewall are you using? If it's NORTON, try this: on Norton
personal firewall click configure. On the networking tab click Trusted add
the Pop3 mail server address and the SMTP server address,
Window Vista also have Outlook Express.. please enter the full info for your email account..
On the E-mail Settings page, enter your email account information as follows:
Your Name Enter your first and last name. E-mail Address Enter your email address. Account Type Select POP3. Incoming mail server Type for your incoming mail server. Outgoing mail server (SMTP) Type for your outgoing mail server. User Name Enter your email address again. Password Enter the password you created for your email account.
After this please check for "Test Account setting"
If everything is working fine, then remove the previous account
And let us know the error message if come up any.
I hope it will resolve the problem and you will be able to use the Outlook.
Please check do you have authentication enabled for your account. Follow steps in here (just type in your email/password and yahoo mail servers). The vital point is setting "My server requires authentication".
I've had the same problem, and my way to fix it was to turn of the firewall and check if it worked, and it did.
When I was sure that the firewall was my problem, I gave accsess to Outlook Express manually through my firewall.
I can probably help you with that to, but then I have to know what firewall/anti virus program you use (if you got one at all?)
if you are using outlook, windows mail (vista), or outlook express, click tools > accounts, click on relevant email account, and then on the servers tab, change your outgoing mail server (SMTP) to your new ISP, eg. if you were on bigpond would look like "mail.bigpond.com"
once that is sorted you can send email, if you are unsure of what to put, reply with you ISP's name
