Incoming and outgoing servers are set by the host of your email service.

For instance BT is: mail.btinternet.com, for incoming and outgoing mail. Speak to your provider to get these details or alternatively look at this site:

There are many other sites that may help with addresses.
Do a google search for. Incoming and outgoing mailservers

Hope this helps

The host 'PoP3"means what


Make sure your password and server name are correct on the email account, and make sure the server you are useing for outgoing mail is a pop3 server. Your provider for internet services may not be a pop3 server on your outgoing mail, it may be a smtp server or something like that for outgoing mail. Check in your email account properties to see what your outgoing mail server says, incoming and outgoing can be different depending on your supplier.

I am unable to set up my incoming and outgoing mail on outlook express so that I don't get errors. I am trying to sync my outlook with my palm treo and my ipod touch. I am receiving my emails on my touch,...


You need to set up Outlook Express with the correct names of the servers for your particular email account. One server name for outgoing mail, and one for incoming. The following link lists all the majors web mail services and their server settings.

http://www.emailaddressmanager.com/tips/mail-settings.html

In Outlook Express, from the Tools menu, choose Accounts.
On the Mail tab, choose Add --> Mail..
Type a display name for your account. Hit Next.
Type your email address. Hit Next.
Using the above link, enter the required information for incoming and outgoing mail servers. Hit Next.
Enter the username and password for the account and click Finish.
(These windows may vary slightly depending on the type of account.)

Hope this was helpful. You'll want to tell Outlook whether or not to leave the email on the server or not (for you to access from the web at a different location perhaps).

Not as familiar with Treo setup, but there is most likely a settings screen to enter the same info as above.

Best of luck!

Trying to set up outlook but dont know incoming and outgoing servers how do i find out


The incoming and outgoing mail servers are going to be the ones used by your ISP(internet service provider:Time Warner,Verizon,ect) if you use their mail service or a web based service(Yahoo,MSN,ect). So you can first start with your actual e-mail address. If your e-mail address is joeschmo@yahoo.com then you e-mail provider is yahoo. You will then need to goto the website for your e-mail provider and get the incoming and outgoing e-mail server info from them. You will also need your username and password for your e-mail account. Then set up a new e-mail account on outlook express using the information. Also some mail servers require authentication so you might need to configure those settings on outlook exprerss also.

Just received new Att email account with U-verse signup. Trying to set up email thru Outlook 2000. Need to know the ''Incoming mai (POP3)'' name and ''Outgoing mail (SMTP)'' name. Please assist. Email...


If you looking for POP3 SMTP Mail Servers then it would be
AT&T WorldNet incoming mail server: postoffice.worldnet.att.net
AT&T WorldNet outgoing mail server: mailhost.worldnet.att.net
or
incoming mail (POP3) -> ipostoffice.worldnet.att.net

Just for POP, I think should be somethinnd like
MemberID@att.net
or
pop.att.yahoo.com

Incoming Mail Server (POP3):
Host Name: ipostoffice.worldnet.att.net:995
User Name: your_username@worldnet.att.net

Good luck
