HI,

I have seen where quite a few are having problems with there POP3 and SMTP accounts. I had the same problem and here is how I resolved it.While in windows mail click on the TOOLS MENUE at the top. Click on ACCOUNTS in this menue. The first screen should show you your mail account. Highlight
this account and click on PROPERTIES This screen should show your personal account name. If there is noyhing in this box you can type in anything you want as it has no bearing on the operation of your mail . At the top of this box click on SERVERS This shows your POP3 and SMTP connections. If there is nothing listed in these two boxes then do the following. Lets say your ISP is hotmail as an example. Under POP3 type in mail.hotmail.com Under SMTP type in mail.hotmail .com Then click APPLY and OK Back out of this setup and try send & receive again. This should work. It worked for me.Don't forget to substitute your ISP for the example I used.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

    In short,


    Tools | Accounts

    Double click on the mail account

    Click on the Servers tab

    Fill in the type of account (POP3 or IMAP) then fill in the server names.



    I don't know what ISP you are connected so I can't give you any idea what

    the server names would be.

    How do I access my freeserve email account through outlook


    Hi
    I don't know which version of Outlook you have but you need to go to >Accounts>Settings. The settings you need are
    Incoming server:- pop.orangehome.co.uk and your logon details for this are your freeserve username which is the full email address and the password you used when setting up the account or subsequently changed to.
    Outgoing server:- the settings here are exactly the same as for the email address given to you by your ISP, as outgoing mail always has to go through the ISP.
    You don't have to access your email through Outlook. If you go here:
    You re logging into services on orange co uk
    and enter your freeserve username and password you can use the address as webmail.
    Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

    Retrieve a fail to send email from a web page?


    Probably not. The email could have failed or numerous reasons. I always CTRL+A and CTRL+C before I post or submit any form online because things don't always work as planned and you have no control over someone else's site.

    You could have been clicking on a mailto link and didn't have a default email client set. This would give you a MAPI error.

    It could be that Outlook Express was setup as your default mail client but it's not setup to use, so it couldn't open the default folders and your email failed for this reason.

    If you use an application on your desktop, then set it to be the default email client. If not, and you only use web-based email, then copy/paste to your email client instead of clicking submit.

    Websites should send server-based email and these issues would be eliminated. Also, using mailto, allows spammers to harvest email addresses on websites. Although it can be written to make it difficult, most people don't make the effort.

    Can I send an email to my daughters orange phone from my PC and would I use her hotmail address or can I use her mobile number with say @orange.co.uk


    If your daughter has a wap or Internet-enabled phone, using Orange World is one of the easiest ways for her to access her webmail.

    There’s nothing she needs to set up. She'll simply open Orange World on her Orange phone, go to “Tools”, then “Read your email” and finally select her email provider.

    She'll then be taken to her email provider’s wap site. From there it’s just like logging on to your email with a web browser.

    What does she need?
    • A wap or Internet-enabled Orange phone
    • A compatible email address (see list of providers)
    • To use this service you’ll need an email provider who has a wap site. Currently you can use this service with the following email providers:
      *Currently, Hotmail only works with a limited number of handsets.
    Set up
    Easy. Open up Orange World on her phone, go to “Tools”, then “Read your email” then select your email provider.

    You'll send an email from your computer to her email account. She can then read it on her phone.

    Unable to access email account on acer net book . i have a laptop running blueyonder broadband,when i try to connect my netbook to my outlook express email account i get unable to access the mail server.


    Hi

    This sounds like your user account settings are not correct and need to be input via the account management section to look like the following:

  • Customer Email format - user.name@blueyonder.co.uk
  • Outgoing Mail Server - smtp.blueyonder.co.uk
  • Outgoing server type - SMTP
  • Incoming mail server - pop3.blueyonder.co.uk
  • Incoming server type - POP3
  • Password - for example, Rich4rd1

  • Thanks

    Outlook


    There are a number of posible reasons for this.

    1) The email could have contained a virus which has stopped your computer from running correctly.

    2) Your computer cannot download the pictures because the files are too large. Outlook may appear to jam but you may need to give it time for the pictures to download.

    3) Your antivirus software may be stopping the email fro being downloaded.

    Do you know who sent the photos?
    Are they from a trusted source?

    If the files are very large you will need to wait for Outlook Express to download them. Depending on your connection speed and server this may take some time, so be patient.

    Do you have access to your email via a web address? Some people use this when they are away from home and want to receive their email. If you can access your email via a web address, I would suggest that you delete this particular email.
