Hi! Thanks for using FixYa to solve your problem. Basically, Outlook needs to know what your outgoing and incoming servers are, and how they are configured, in order to send and receive your e-mail correctly.
The incoming server is the e-mail that you receive from other people. The outgoing server is the e-mail that you send to other people. I would advise the best thing that you could do is to call your Internet Service Provider, or ISP (like Charter or Verizon), and ask them the following questions:
1) What is the address of the incoming e-mail server? (like pop3.charter.net) - usually this is a POP3 server.
2) What is the address of the outgoing e-mail server? (like smtp.charter.net) - usually this is an SMTP server.
3) What is the port for the incoming server?
4) What is the port for the outgoing server?
5) Is this an encrypted connection?
6) Does either server require authentication (usually the incoming server)
In addition, please be sure that you use the correct username and password for your e-mail that your ISP provided you. This is likely going to be different than the username and password that you use to login to your ISP's website (it is for Charter).
POP3 and SMTP are "protocols," or languages, so to speak, that your ISP's network uses to "talk to" other servers to send and receive your e-mail. As long as these settings are configured correctly, Outlook should have no problem sending and receiving your e-mail.
These same methods work for other e-mail clients like Mozilla Thunderbird and Incredimail.
When you create a new account in Outlook by the way, Outlook will try and use an encrypted connection. If your ISP does not use encryption, you will wait a good long time and then Outlook will tell you it can't find or configure your e-mail s ervers. If that happens, just tell Outlook to use a non-encrypted connection, and then it should find all your e-mail server's settings from your ISP just fine without further intervention.
1:In Microsoft Outlook, select Tools > E-mail Accounts. 2: On the E-mail Accounts wizard window, select "Add a new e-mail account" and click Next. 3: For your server type, select "POP3" and click Next 4: On the Internet E-mail Settings (POP3) window, enter your information as follows: Your Name Enter your first and last name. E-mail Address Enter your e-mail address. User Name Enter your e-mail address, again. Password Enter the password you set up for your e-mail account. Incoming mail server (POP3) Enter pop.secureserver.net for your incoming mail server. Outgoing mail server (SMTP) Enter smtpout.secureserver.net for your outgoing mail server. 5: Click “more settings”. On the Internet E-mail Settings window, select the "Outgoing Server" tab. 6. Select "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication." 7. If you did not change the SMTP relay section, select "Use same settings as my incoming mail server". If you changed the user name and password in the SMTP relay section of your Manage Email Accounts page, select "Log on using" and enter the user name and password. The following example assumes you did not change your SMTP relay section in your Manage Email Accounts page. 8: Select the "Advanced" tab and change the "Outgoing server (SMTP)" port to 80 or 3535. 9: Click OK. 10. Click Next. 11. Click Finish.
Open Microsoft Outlook Express and click the "Tools" menu item. Select "Accounts" from the list of menu items. In the window that opens, click the "Add" button and select "Mail." This starts the mail configuration wizard that helps step you through the process.
Enter your full name in the first text box. This is the name displayed when users receive your email. In the next text box, enter your AT&T Uverse email address. Click the "Next" button.Select "POP3" from the incoming mail protocol drop-down box. Enter "pop.att.yahoo.com" in the text box labeled "Incoming Mail Server." In the outgoing mail server text box, enter "smtp.att.yahoo.com." Click the "Next" button.
Enter your AT&T Uverse login name and password. Check the box labeled "Remember Password." Click the "Next" button again.
Click the "Finish" button at the summary screen. The mail creation wizard closes. Click the "Send and Receive" button to retrieve any current emails in your Uverse account.
You should first check all the mail setting for the mail account that does not work.
Your ISP will have those on the help page for your ISP.
If its is hotmail or yahoo mail etc then they too have help pages with the information you need.
If your settings are all correct then move onto checking your firewall and other INTERNET safety software such as antivirus. Norton can cause all sorts of issues with send and receive mail.
If it is outlook that is at fault then a simple and quick "repair" installation of MS Office will tend to sort those out. Just put your office CD in and follow the instructions but select the "repair my office installation" option
You didn't give a lot to go on so I can only give you the basic options to try point you in the right direction
It depends on your mail account, but a search enginge can help you. For example, if you have a gmail address search online for "gmail incoming mail server" or if you are using charter search "charter incoming mail server" and one of the results should be able to tell you what words to put in the incoming mail server box.
It is usually something like "pop.mailserver.com" or something similar
If you looking for POP3 SMTP Mail Servers then it would be AT&T WorldNet
incoming mail server: postoffice.worldnet.att.net AT&T WorldNet outgoing
mail server: mailhost.worldnet.att.net or incoming mail (POP3) ->
