Cannot access my hotmail a/c comes up server not found


Servers provide information for websites, hold Web pages, protect other computers from infection, provide authentication services and hold large numbers of files. Servers also connect email systems together. The average Web surfer encounters many servers in a day without realizing it. The mention of servers only arises when things go wrong. For example if the Hotmail Mail Server is inaccessible the user will receive an error message that the server cannot be found.

Client-Server In standard network communication all computers fall into one of two categories: clients and servers. Servers are bigger computers with large storage capacity and fast processing power. A server centralizes services that enable applications running on client computers to have access to more resources than their own computer could handle. The client is the local computer, the one the user accesses. The local computer, the client, contacts a remote computer, the server, with a request for a service. If the server is available, it responds with the requested service or resource. b> Hotmail Hotmail uses several types of servers. The screen the user accesses is actually an email client. It lists delivered email and enables users to write new emails. Originally, this program was always resident on the user's computer. Hotmail revolutionized the provision of email services by making this interface available on a website. The website itself is hosted on a Web server. The chain of clients and servers in a simple email transaction with email can soon become complicated. The user, on a home computer, is sitting at the client. The client program is the Web browser. The Web browser contacts a Web server to get and display the Hotmail page. b> Hotmail Servers b> Although the Hotmail page is resident on a server, it is a mail client and is also called a Mail User Agent, or MUA. It sends all outbound emails to a server called a Mail Submissions Agent, or MSA. The MSA sends the email to a server called a Mail Exchange, or MX, which then forwards it to another server called a Mail Delivery Agent, where the email sits until the user commands the mail client to go and find any new emails. b> Missing Server b> The server that Hotmail reports it was not able to find could be the Mail Submissions Agent, the Mail Exchange, or the Mail Delivery Agent. If the message arise during the sending of an email, the likelihood is that it is the Mail Submissions Agent that could not be contacted. If the error message occurs when Hotmail goes to find new received emails, it is likely to be the Mail Delivery Agent that could not be contacted. In either case, the user's connection is with the Web server and not either of these servers. There is little that the user can do to fix this problem other than try again later.

Some email messages people are sending to my correct address are not reaching me. Where are they going?


People send messages from their computer to their ISP's mail-server -- compare to dropping an addressed letter into a US Postal Service mailbox.
Then, the ISP's mail-server tries to send the message to your ISP's mail-server -- compare to the US Postal Service transporting a bag of messages from the "source" city to the "target" city.
Hopefully, your ISP's mail-server is "accepting" messages from the other ISP. This can take a while -- imagine the volume of E-mail from HOTMAIL customers to YAHOO customers!

Then, your computer tries to "pull" the message from your ISP's mail-server onto your computer. Hopefully, this works.

Finally, your E-mail program may be doing "spam-filtering", and may put the incoming message into the 'Junk Mail' folder.
Have you looked in that folder?

So, there's lots of "opportunity" for messages to be "stuck" someplace. Without explicit details, and log-files from the sender's mail-server and your ISP's mail-server, it's impossible to be more precise.

Sounds like your "Outgoing" mail server settings aren't correct.

Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.mail.yahoo.com (port 110)Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.mail.yahoo.com (port 25)

Old email address


Contact you IP (internet) provider, identify yourself, and ask them
for your email address, server password and server details to
set up your email client (program on your computer)

If they cannot retrieve your password, they can reset it
and allow you to get in that way. They will also assist you
in installing and configuring your email (client) program,
such as Outlook, Eudora ... etc.

My favorite email tools is Courier Mail, formerly known as Calypso mail, by Rose City Software. It is powerful and simple to use, and it is not as popular a target for hacks and viruses.

Last time I checked, Rose city was giving it away for free, as
a promotion for their (other) products.

Location of email sender


Sort of. You can identify the address of the mail server which sent the email (by using the message headers, as you state).

You can then try to geolocate that server address. That's not 100% reliable, but it should at least tell you if the address is inside or outside the UK.

Look at the Internet Headers for the message (Right-click message and select "Options")

Look for "Received: from" lines. These come in reverse order. So the first one you see should identify your own mail server. The last one should identify the originating mail server (there may be several intermediate servers, depending on the route the message took. It would look something like this:

"Received: from somecompany.co.uk (mail.somecompany.co.uk [143.166.148.223])"

Take that IP address and go to a geolocating service, like geody.com. Paste the address into the Geolocate box and hit submit. It will give you a location for that IP address based on DNS records.

Since large companies may have a business address that doesn't necessarily correspond to their server location, this amount to a best guess. But it will give you something to go on.

Good Luck!

The default name server due to interaction with the router?s NAT firewall feature cannot resolve simple names such as ?mail?. There is a workaround for this: First, verify that the mail client is set up with simple server names. To view the server names entered into Outlook Express, click on "Tools", "Accounts". Highlight the mail account and click on "Properties". Click on the "Servers" tab. Under "Server Information", there are two fields called "Incoming mail" and "Outgoing mail". If these are simple names like "Mail" and not something like "pop.myisp.mail.com" then use this work around. Second, make sure that the TCP/IP settings are configured to obtain an IP address automatically. In Windows 2000 also make sure that the TCP/IP settings are also configured for Obtain DNS server address automatically. Replace the mail server names with the mail server IP addresses. There are a couple ways this information can be obtained. Contacting the ISP and asking is one possible way. The other way is to reconnect the original computer to the modem. Make sure the computer is restarted or that the IP configuration is released and renewed and that the computer has obtained an IP address from the ISP. Open a "COMMAND" window by typing "CMD" in the run dialog box located in the "Start" menu. At the command prompt, type "PING MAIL" where "mail" is the simple name of the incoming mail server. The ISP server will return an IP address for the mail server. Record this address. Do the same for the outgoing mail server (if different): type "PING MAIL" where "mail" is the simple name of the outgoing mail server. Open the mail client (Outlook Express, etc.). For Outlook Express, click on "Tools", "Accounts". Highlight the mail account and click on "Properties". Click on the "Servers" tab. Under "Server Information", there are two fields called "Incoming mail" and "Outgoing mail". Enter the incoming and outgoing mail server IP addresses into these fields. Click "Apply". Close the window and test the mail by sending an e-mail to the mailbox. (Send an E-mail to yourself. This will test the incoming and outgoing mail all at once)
