There was a problem logging onto your mail server.
- Your Password was rejected. Account: 'pop.tiscali.co.uk', Server:
'pop.tiscali.co.uk', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR invalid
user or password', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error:
- Error Number: 0x800CCC92
The first step is to check your Outlook Express settings
, making sure that the POP3 and SMTP servers are as in the screenshots, and that your full user name and password are correct.
Then test your connection by following this procedure.
- Click the Start button
type in cmd on (Windows NT/2000/XP) or Command (Windows 95/98/ME).
This will open a new command prompt window, with white text on a black screen.
- Type in the following exactly as it appears. You will not see
what you are entering so take it slowly, and if you make a mistake,
telnet pop.tiscali.co.uk 110 and then click the Enter key
on your keyboard. You will then be connected to the email server.
- Type in USER followed by your email address e.g. USER email@example.com
and then click the Enter key.
You will then get a message +OK Please enter your pass, with the PASS command
- Type in PASS followed by your password e.g. PASS joblog0370 and click the Enter key.
If it is correct, you will get an OK Well done message.
- If you can do this, you have connected to the Tiscali server and so the problem lies somewhere with Outlook Express.
If you can't get in this way either, it could be that your password has somehow become corrupted. Try changing it in My Account
