    Yes, I had worked through all you suggested with my provider. Subsequently Apple told me that MSN is not compatible with Leopard. I'm now attempting to active a third party application that creates a work-around alias (MacFreePops from FreePops.org). Still not there yet. Thanks. Les

Are you on dial-up, broadband or ? Who is your internet provider? It could be as simple as asking your provider what ports they use for email. Most use port 25 to send and 110 to recieve, but some use different settings for security reasons. It could be the way you enter your account information into the email program. To help you, we need much more information.

Your best bet is probably calling your internet provider and asking tech support for the settings for whichever mail program you are using, or even email their tech support. Some providers even have live chat...(for free)

Problem sending email


First of all, do you know if the company received your resume?
Call them and see if they received it via email.
If they haven't, I would just start a msn @live.com email account you can use for business. MSN has larger storage and it's very
easy to set up an account free.

Unable to receive mail in Entourage from POP server.


Not really sure what is wrong but would suggest that you check your account setup under tools/Accounts and see if the setting for advanced settings for receive is set to "This POP service requires a secure connection" is checked or not. It depends on what your ISP requires

Unable to send/rec emails to fellow regular MSN hotmail contact


1. Check if you have an active internet connection
2. Send a test mail yourself and verify you receive the mail
3. sometimes MSN servers may get slowing down... most probably that could be the case... send mail to the other party after an hour
4. Can you send mail to others... I mean other MSN pals, other gmail a/c pals, etc
5. Can you see your friend online on MSN messenger?

If you decide that you don't need your Gmail address anymore, and you're sure you won't want your username in the future, you can simply remove Gmail from your Google Account. Here's how:
  1. Click Settings at the top of any Gmail page, and open the Accounts tab.
  2. Click Google Account settings.
  3. Click Edit next to My products on the right side.
  4. Click Delete Gmail Service.
Once you delete your Gmail address, you can't reactivate it, and you won't be able to retrieve any messages. if(document.getElementById('kb_ie8') != null) showLayer('kb_ie8'); if(document.getElementById('kb_ie8_win') != null) showLayer('kb_ie8_win'); if(document.getElementById('z_ie8') != null) toggleZippy('z_ie8'); if(document.getElementById('z_ie8_win') != null) toggleZippy('z_ie8_win'); if(document.getElementById('kb_ie') != null) showLayer('kb_ie'); if(document.getElementById('kb_ie_win') != null) showLayer('kb_ie_win'); if(document.getElementById('z_ie') != null) toggleZippy('z_ie'); if(document.getElementById('z_ie_win') != null) toggleZippy('z_ie_win'); if(document.getElementById('kb_win')) showLayer('kb_win'); if(document.getElementById('z_win')) toggleZippy('z_win'); if(document.getElementById('kb_winxp')) showLayer('kb_winxp'); if(document.getElementById('z_winxp')) toggleZippy('z_winxp'); if(document.getElementById('kb_US')) showLayer('kb_US'); if(document.getElementById('z_US')) toggleZippy('z_US');

I have been using windows live mail for several months for two email accounts. My hotmail account works fine but for my second westnet account (www.westnet.com.au) i am able to recieve email but unable to...


G'day,

All of the documentation on the westnet.com.au site shows that your "Outgoing mail server" should be set to "mail.westnet.com.au", not "mail.wn.com.au". Please check both of your accounts in Windows Live.

If this doesn't fix your proble, could you please repost the settings for your two accounts so that I can compare them?
