    I know this is closed off, but if you still have the problem I'm wondering if you have tried the Tools/accounts/properties/server tab, and tick remember password. If you have, then I think it's someting to do with how your ISP has set up your account. Can you use web mail ok? Rgds.

    PS Thanks for the feedback.. Appreciate it. cya.

New laptop. Trying to set up Outlook which is loaded on the computer. I am trying to manually enter settings for incoming and outgoing mail, etc. I do not remember or have on my password/user ID list...


You call your internet service provider--the company that you use for mail. They will ask you to identify yourself and then can give you your username and password.
Your email address gives you a clue as to whom you deal with for email.

I am a new user, when i tried to send out going E-Mail I was directed to enter server info?


You need to look at the information that was provided by your ISP (Internet service provider). If you are trying to access through a client programs such as outlook then you need to find out from your ISP what the pop and SMTP addresses are so that you can enter them at that screen as well as the username and password that was provided with your account.

Outlook express...hotmail My friend stopped receiving e-mails sept 1 2009. when he opens up an e-mail received before sept 1, he gets the following error message... access to the account was denied, verify...


First make sure the Internet is working.
If it is then try to login with the same username and password on www.hotmail.com if you can log in then it's a problem with outlook express if you cant then that is the problem.
To make sure outlook express is correct click on Tools, Accounts then click on Mail tab and then click on your email address and select properties make sure the username and password are correct or retype them.

  8. Type "pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk" in the Incoming Mail (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP) Server box.
  9. Type "smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk" in the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server box.
  10. Click "Next."
  11. In the Account Name box, type your Yahoo! Mail ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com").
  12. In the Password box, type your Yahoo! Mail password.
  13. If you want Outlook Express to remember your password, check the "Remember password" box.
  14. Do not check the boxes labelled "Log on using Secure…"
  15. Click "Next."

If you're unable to send email, try using port 587 when sending via Yahoo!'s SMTP server. Here's how to make this change:
  1. From the "Tools" menu, select "Accounts."
  2. Select your Yahoo! POP account and click the "Properties" button.
  3. Click the "Advanced" tab.
  4. Next to "Outgoing server (SMTP"), change port 25 to 587.
  5. Click "Apply." Then click "OK" and "Close."

Hello i forget my password and my all other details in yahoo mail so how can i get the same


Open a free Gmail or windows live account. Then contact yhoo from your web mail, tell them you forgot your password, and they should ask you a couple of questions, and either email you the necessary password. That's how most of the work, like my hotmail address got lost and they sent it back on my pop3 account. You probablly have a POP3, That one is easier to verify for them, so if you have outlook or outlook express, it should take an couple of hours, with web mail like yhoo and gmail, it takes longer for them to verify. But do yourself a favor and get a gmail-Google account, if you use google as your primary search engine, you can sign in once and forget it, as it will sign you in on your browser, good luck

I am attempting to transfere E mail facility to windows mail. They cannot verify the host/ server as tools.sky.com please verify the correct address for incoming and outgoing.


Applogies for the copy and paste, but it's rather long winded to type, but sky tools is not the email setting, see below:-

1.Open Outlook Express, click Tools then select Accounts 2. Click the Mail tab, then click Add and select Mail 3. The wizard will start. Type in your name then click Next 4. Enter your email address then click Next 5. Leave the My Incoming Mail Server is a POP3 Server drop down box as POP3. In Incoming Mail Server enter: pop.sky.com (all lowercase, no spaces). In Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server enter: smtp.sky.com (all lowercase, no spaces). 6. In the Account Name Box enter the first part of your @sky.com email address (everything before the @ sign). In the Password Box, enter the password for your @sky.com email account, then click Next. 7. Click Finish 8. To complete the acount creation process click Tools then select Accounts 9. Click the Mail tab, then click Properties 10. Click the My server requires authentication box to place a tick inside. Click OK 11. Repeat the above process for each mail account you want to set up, including sub accounts. Each sub account will have a different email address and password. If you're having trouble sending email from Outlook Express (or other email software), it may mean you need to switch on SMTP authentication.

Need to reregister account, after pc went down. need e mail settings to set up outlook express in order to get e mails. please send settings to my daughters e mail address tracylisa@btinternet.com


Many service providers have a link on their page that will automatically configure Outlook Express to receive e-mail. I would suggest that the first place to look is the main page for your service provider (Optonline, Time-Warner, Verizon, whatever) and find the tab for "support" or Frequently Asked Questions. Type in "e-mail" at the search box, and you should see some answer listed for "setting up my e-mail account (on my computer, or something like that.) Specific wording depends on your service provider.
Then, most providers have a link you can click that will run a program to automatically set it up for you.
Here's a page from Verizon, which will give you an idea of the process:
