Before you can use it you have to setup the email account. In that you have to provide the port numbers of incoming and outgoing servers (ie, pop3 and smtp). It can not access all types of emails. if your email server is compatible then only would it retrieve and send emails. So, please check the type of email server you have. If it is not pop3 then OE may not connect to the mail server.

Outlook Express needs you to have an email account with your ISP, and your ISP should provide you with the setup items like Mail Servers. Once this isw done, you will have complete access to your email.

As an example, my ISP is Comcast and my mail servers are

mail.comcast.net to receive, and
smtp.comcast.net to send.

Your ISP will have their own servers, of course.

You will need to log in to these servers, using logins and passwords provided by your ISP. Outlook Express manages this as well.

Hi Mark,

In Windows Vista Outlook Express has been replaced by Windows mail. You can configure the Windows mail with similar settings.
Open Windows Mail by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Mail.

Unable to get emails from Outlook Express. Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity....


Who is your ISP? Is your Outlook Express correctly configured? Make sure your servers are correctly defined, ie for Comcast it might use mail.comcast.net for incoming, and smtp.comcast.net for sending. Your ISP has these server names they can give you.

I cannot get my comcast email contacts switched over to verizon. What should I do?


What email program are you using? That will determine where your contacts are stored, and that will determine your options.

If you are using ComCast's Web-based email system (in your Web browser), you'll either need to import them into a local program like Outlook or Outlook Express, or you'll have to talk to ComCast about exporting them to a .csv file. If you can display a list of them in tabular format on the screen, you may be able to copy-and-paste it into an Excel spreadsheet and then save that as a .csv file. If you're already using Outlook or Outlook Express, you should be able to just create the new Verizon mailbox and retain your existing contacts. If you can get them as a .csv file, you can either import that into Outlook or Outlook Express, or you can talk to Verizon about importing it into their Web-based email system.

Cannot receive mail into Outlook Express


your incoming server should be set to mail.comcast.net - not localhost and not Rich (outgoing server should be set to smtp.comcast.net) - this according to comcast.net website.
