My thanks to all those who offered, however as a so called Silver Surfer, I call upon my son for assistance a great deal. When he set up my laptop, he noted my Password incorrectly, when he checked, using my notes, everything was restored. The moral is be careful of passwords! Sorry to be nuisance. Hock0

The problem is not with your machine, but with your e-mail service. It may just be a glitch in their server. Most e-mail providers stay on top of their equipment and fix problems within a reasonable amount of time. Give it a day to see if they fix the problem, if not, contact them.

How do I set up my email


Which email account do you want to set up ???...
Windows Live is a group of services offered by Microsoft on the Internet and through mobile Web browsers.
Users can sign up for Windows Live and access all of the services, including a calendar, messenger, social groups and parental controls.
When signing up for Windows Live, new users can choose to create a free Live.com email address.

Navigate to the Windows Live sign-up page.
https://accountservices.passport.net/reg.srf?bk=1245529554&cru=http://login.live.com/login.srf&sl=1&vv=650&lc=1033
Type a screen name in the "Windows Live ID" box and click "Check Availability" to see if the name is in use.
Choose the name carefully as this will be your email address.
Choose "live.com" in the drop-down menu next to the "Windows Live ID" box.
Fill Out the rest of the information on the sign-up page and click "I Accept" to complete the registration of your live.com email address.
Click "Mail" on your profile page to access your new live.com email account.
Create A Yahoo Email Address
Yahoo offers free email accounts with add-ons such as a calendar, notepad and an automatic organizer.
Your Yahoo account is Web-based, so you can access your messages anywhere you have an Internet connection.
Once you complete the simple one-page registration form, you will also have access to all of Yahoo's features.
You can use your new email address to sign into Flickr, Yahoo Answers, Messenger and a variety of games and fantasy sports leagues.

Click the "Sign Up" link that appears below the "Sign In" option on the Yahoo homepage to create a new account.
Enter your name, gender, address and birth date on the appropriate lines.
Choose your Yahoo username.
Your username will also be your email address.
Make sure "Yahoo.com" is selected from the drop-down list next to the email address.
Click the "Check" button to see if your desired email address is available.
Enter your desired password on both of the required lines.
The password must be typed exactly the same on both lines.
You will see a "Password Strength" bar indicating how difficult your password will be for a hacker to guess.
Select a "secret question" from the drop-down menu.
Yahoo will use this question to verify your identity if you lose your password.
Enter the answer to the question you chose from the menu.
Repeat this process to choose your second "secret question" and answer.
There is also an optional line where you can enter an alternate email address for Yahoo to send you password resetting instructions.
Enter the letters and numbers displayed in the image on the screen into the "image verification" line.
This proves that you are a human and not an automated script designed to open new Yahoo accounts.
Click the "Create My Account" button when you are finished completing all of the input boxes. You will then see your account details displayed on the screen.
You can print this page for your records, if needed.
Click "Continue" to proceed to your new email account.

Gmail features 5 gigabytes (GB) of storage and a patented search tool that allows you to easily search through and find individual emails.
Setting up Gmail accounts is easy and there is no limit to the number of Gmail accounts that you are allowed to have.
When you sign up for a Gmail account, you are also signing up for a Google account which will give you access to various Google products including iGoogle, Google Groups, Google Alerts, Google Product Search Shopping List and Personalized Search.

Open your Web browser and go to the Gmail website.
Click the link "Create an account."
Type the requested information in the appropriate fields.
Check the availability of your desired log in name by clicking "Check Availability."
If the user name you selected is not available, try another log in name.
Gmail will also suggest alternative email addresses that are currently available.
Click "I accept. Create my account."
Verify your telephone number.
Gmail requires a telephone verification to help prevent spam and fraudulent use of Gmail's service.
You can choose to receive a voice call from Google or a text message on your United States based cellular telephone.
Type you telephone number and click "Send verification code to my mobile phone."
Check your mobile phone for your verification code or answer your telephone and write down the verification code given in the recorded message.
Type the verification code in the text field labeled "Enter your code" and click "Verify."
Wait while Gmail sets up your new account.
Click the button "Show me my account."
You can now send and receive emails using your new Gmail account.

Error 530 when sending emails


Hello. This error generally occurs when the ISP is blocking port 25 and it may not accept mails from other network domains. To solve the problem, go to Outlook -> Tools -> Accounts -> Server -> Advanced. Here, you have to change SMTP port from 25 to 587. Click on Apply -> Ok and restart Outlook. If it doesn't work, change the port to 25 again and use a Webmail interface which it uses port 80.

I hope I helped. If you have any other questions, please leave a reply!

Thank you for using FixYa!

I am new to this.i dont know how email.how do i get started?


Well it can be a bit complicated but I will try to make this less painful for you. Go to a free email service just to start out doing email. Choose something like gmail or yahoo for now. They offer free email for you. You will be asked to insert your information and choose a username and a password choose both of those and make sure to write them down or remember them I write them down until I can remember them I use just one username and a password for everything. Once this is done you will be sent an email to confirm then you can click the link to go to your email box.
You will have to get email address's from your friends to be able to send them email. Go to where it says write mail put their email exactly where it says send to and type in a subject and then start writing your note when done click on send.
Lets say you already were given an email by your provider or your provider sends you to a page to work with Outlook or another software email program you will need to know the POP information the SMTP info as well as the proper settings to use email programs such as Outlook which configures it easy for you the first time just type you full name in the start screen and password be sure to check the save password box then it will do it automatically for you. Then click on choose account. These work for most POP email programs. I would at first start off using a free service until you get used to emailing and receiving email from others.
If you already have email from a free service then just go to Yahoo.com or whichever is your service provider web page email section. Then login and then go to email. Do the same process as described above. Once you get there send me an email jcrowder0027@comcast.net this can be your first email to anyone. I hope this kinda explains some of the process to doing this. John

I CAN RECEIVE E-MAILS BUT FAIL TO SEND BACK OR REPLY


Your net connection might be slow. Of if you're using outlook, then it might the wrong configuration. Otherwise, nothing else should block you from sending back the reply.

I have windows vista


hi

check for any settings that are required by the email provider, like if the mails are to be sent under gmail or yahoo they require you to be sending the mail through a secure port like 995 and others

also for gmail you have to activate the pop3 mails from the site before getting them on you system

hope this helped
cheers

pls rate the solution if it was any help

Sending email


here are the settings for btinternet, if you use "outlook" you must manually configure them!

  • The POP3 server (incoming mail) is mail.btinternet.com
  • The SMTP server (outgoing mail) is also mail.btinternet.com
  • Both need your BT Yahoo! email address and password; you will have to tell your e-mail program that the SMTP server requires authentication.
  • The SMTP server can use either port 25 or port 587.
The most common fault is to provide your ADSL username and password when your BT Yahoo! username and password is what's required.

good luck and regards

I can receive e-mails but I cannot send them


by the sounds of it its not that hard of a fix, I take it you are using outlook or similar
alot of the time people forget that you have to set the outgoing server manually this would cause the error you suggested above.

alot of the time it requires authentication

if you start up your outlook and then on the top menu goto tools from the tools menu you will then click on the account settings then double click on the email account that is having the issue.

A new window will now popup

then click on the outgoing server tab and then here is where we adjust your settings for you outgoing server setting

check the box next to "my outgoing server (smtp) requires authentication"
then check the login using and fill in your login info here now we can try this setting first to see if that helped or if we need to put a check mark in the box that says
"require secured password authentication"

also the outgoing server port number might not be correct as well if you have the correct information from your provider that should be put in here then it would be great
this is found in the advance tab

let me know how you made out and if its a different email client or you need more info im more then willing to help out and try and get this issue resolved for you so that you can get those emails sent.

please consult your isp or email host for proper setup

Hi,

Check the outgoing server authentication box in Tools / Options / Accounts / Advance Settings.

Your ISP / Email provider may require your outgoing mail / smtp to authenticate with a username and password prior to allowing the transfer of the mail.

What version of Outlook are you using?
