Setting up existing e-mail onto new pc.

While trying to set up outlook with an existing e-mail a/c the test function returns the following error message. "Outlook could not logon to the outgoing mail server (SMTP). The problem could be the server name, your server may require authentication, or your server may not support SSL. Verify authentication and SSL options under More Settings.
My question is how can I get round this?

Make sure you made setting same like the previous one, most of the SMTP servers require authentication, some SMTP servers use SSL , according to your error message you have tick on SSL option check with your email service provider that they have SSL enabled on SMTP if not disable SSL . collect correct information related to your SMTP server and replace setting with them.

Wel smtp is your outgoing mail provider.

example.

email account kpn
internet account kpn

correct settings:
pop.kpn.nl
smtp.kpn.nl

email account kpn
internet acount xs4all.

this is the correct settings:

pop.kpn.nl with correct username and password
smtp.xs4all.nl

as you see you have to take the smtp address of your internet ADSL provider.

good luck.

Looks like you need to set up your e-mail account onto your new computer. If you still have it set up on your old pc you can go into outlook express and export the account ,save it onto a memory stick,then go onto your new pc and tell the mail program on it (outlook express ? ) to import the account you saved onto your memory stick.

I am trying to save contacts in yahoo mail and get an error. Sorry, some of the contact edits you just made returned errors; Add Error (-40403): Label does not exist What does this mean?



Yahoo allows a total of 5000 contacts in their webmail interface check out if you have more than 5000 contacts and if you do then start using an email client to save your contacts hence forth. You can use windows live mail or outlook which have to limitation of the number of contacts that can be saved onto your computer.

553 sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts (#5.7.1)


This is not an outlook issue. This error is generated by the recipient's mail server basically saying that your domain/server isn't in their DNS list, so they don't trust your mail yet.

If you've only recently set up your email system make sure that the DNS records are all in place for your email domain - most notably your MX record (should also consider SPF record.)

If you've recently set up the DNS records, then try giving them some more time to populate on the internet.

Cannot send, reply or forward my Yahoo e-mail


In microsoft outlook, clik on Tools> E-mail accounts>View or change existing e-mail accounts>change > correct outgoing mail server (SMTP) settings and press Test Account Settings.
If you receive a Task error message: ( X Send test e-mail message "Failed" ) perhaps you have been disconnected by your e-mail provider.
