Configuring Mozilla Thuderbird 6.0.2 with my q.com email at Century Link


If you log onto centurylink.net, you can ask for the settings for POP mail.
They will guide you through them. Basically, you need your username and password along with the pop mail server and the smtp mail server. The pop server will be pop.centurylink,net. The smtp server is smtp.centurylink.net. The server required authentication, but not SSL

Getting outlook to work; won't connect to server


Hi! Thanks for using FixYa to solve your problem. Basically, Outlook needs to know what your outgoing and incoming servers are, and how they are configured, in order to send and receive your e-mail correctly.

The incoming server is the e-mail that you receive from other people. The outgoing server is the e-mail that you send to other people. I would advise the best thing that you could do is to call your Internet Service Provider, or ISP (like Charter or Verizon), and ask them the following questions:

1) What is the address of the incoming e-mail server? (like pop3.charter.net) -
usually this is a POP3 server.

2) What is the address of the outgoing e-mail server? (like smtp.charter.net) -
usually this is an SMTP server.

3) What is the port for the incoming server?

4) What is the port for the outgoing server?

5) Is this an encrypted connection?

6) Does either server require authentication (usually the incoming server)

In addition, please be sure that you use the correct username and password for your e-mail that your ISP provided you. This is likely going to be different than the username and password that you use to login to your ISP's website (it is for Charter).

POP3 and SMTP are "protocols," or languages, so to speak, that your ISP's network uses to "talk to" other servers to send and receive your e-mail. As long as these settings are configured correctly, Outlook should have no problem sending and receiving your e-mail.

These same methods work for other e-mail clients like Mozilla Thunderbird and Incredimail.

When you create a new account in Outlook by the way, Outlook will try and use an encrypted connection. If your ISP does not use encryption, you will wait a good long time and then Outlook will tell you it can't find or configure your e-mail s ervers. If that happens, just tell Outlook to use a non-encrypted connection, and then it should find all your e-mail server's settings from your ISP just fine without further intervention.

I do hope this helps! Take care!

The message could not be sent because the server rejected the sender's e-mail address. The sender's e-mail address was 'fkb@ameritech.net'. Subject '', Account: 'pop.attyahoo.com', Server:...


One problem is that the incoming (POP) mail server shown in the error message appears to be incorrect. The server address should be "pop.att.yahoo.com" (with a period between "att" and "yahoo"). The incorrect mail server address may interfere with authentication of the sender's email address, which is needed before the outgoing message is sent.

The "530 authentication" message indicates your outgoing (SMTP) server likely requires "server authentication". Also, the "Port 25" message indicates your email program is currently trying to send via Port 25, with no SSL; but Ameritech/Yahoo accounts appears to use Port 465 with SSL enabled.

See more on sever settings for "ameritech.net" users:

https://motorola-global-portal.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61941/~/i886---at%26t,-bellsouth,-sbcglobal,-ameritech-email-settings

I would suggest you check the settings for your Ameritech email account in your email program. You may need to correct several settings. The steps to access account settings are somewhat different for various email programs (Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird, etc.). You should be able to find guidance in the "help" section of your email program.

How do i get email without going onto microsoft outlook?


Microsoft Outlook is just the program to retrieve your e-mail from an e-mail server (via POP(3) or IMAP) or send e-mail (via SMTP). As long as the program you use is configured to access your e-mail server you can use any e-mail client you like (e.g. Mozilla Thunderbird, Outlook, GNUMail, etc.) BUt you have to use an e-mail client to access your e-mail.
Here's a link to some e-mail client comparisons (click here).

Setting up Outlook Express on XP


Though you don't say, I infer from your question you have an Internet connection. Most people prefer to use "Web Mail" because it allows access from ANY computer. If you install a local client ( and I would NOT recommend Outlook ) you need a mail provider who provides SMTP and POP3 mailboxes and you inherit the setup issues you describe. If you have such a provider, I suggest you download and install Thunderbird from Mozilla.com/Thunderbird. Your mail provider's support or "how to connect" page will have all the specific instructions you need to attach to their server.

Setting up Email Acct with Iphone


well to the first person unfortunatly the bellsouth email system is not yet designed to work with the 3g network so you would have to turn that off to use bellsouth.

Also for all of you need to remember that both Yahoo and AOL email work with the IMAP stands for Internet Message Access Protocol. It is a method of accessing electronic mail or bulletin board messages that are kept on a (possibly shared) mail server. In other words, it permits a "client" email program to access remote message stores as if they were local. For example, email stored on an IMAP server can be manipulated from a desktop computer at home, a workstation at the office, and a notebook computer while traveling, without the need to transfer messages or files back and forth between these computers.

where as the bellsouth system is a POP system. what the means is that when you check your email client on either the computer or the phone it is actually pulling the mail from the bellsouth server to the respective devices and deleting the email unless you have both set to leave a copy on the bellsouth server.

and again the sending and recieving issues with bell south is due to the 3g network

Mozilla Thunderbird setup


    Google Gmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): smtp.gmail.com
    The Gmail SMTP server requires authentication (use the same settings as for the incoming mail server)
    The Google Gmail SMTP Server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) on port 465.
    GMail uses POP3 over an SSL connection, so make sure your email client supports encrypted SSL connections.
      Google Gmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.gmail.com (SSL enabled, port 995)Outgoing Mail Server - use the SMTP mail server address provided by your local ISP or smtp.gmail.com (SSL enabled, port 465)
