Hello,

Most ISP's don't allow you to use their SMTP/Outgoing server while you are connected to another provider. You have a couple of options for correcting this.

1. You can enable SMTP authentication with your local ISP information. Here are some screenshots that you can use to make the changes.

2 If option 1 doesn't correct the issue, you will need to contact the ISP that you are using while away from home and ask them for the name of their SMTP/Outgoing server. You can also use the above screenshots to change the SMTP server to the server name they give you. If you use this option, you can uncheck the option that says "My outgoing server requires authentication", you wont need that enabled if you have the actual server name.

Thanks

In Win Vista Outlook is reconfigured to WIndows Live mail, so the only solution is to use this version , but you can transfer your account settings from earlier computer with outlook installed... there is a link how to do that, but it leads to another site then another etc.

Siplest explanation is : from outlook_> export everything to a file, and then tranfer it to windows live by "import"

I cant receive my emails


You can't receive emails? You need to give more information. Are you using a Web mail (i.e. Yahoo mail, Gmail) or are you using an e-mail client (i.e. Outlook 2003/2007; Outlook Express)?

Email clients uses two types of account, POP3 and IMAP.

If you are using an e-mail client like Outlook 2003, you need to change the incoming mail server. Please follow the steps below:

For Outlook 2003/2007:

1. Open your Outlook and then click on Tools.
2. Go to Accounts or Email Accounts.
3. Go to Mail tab and you will see the account that you have created (like pop.gmail.com or imap.gmail.com)
4. Double-click on pop or imap account and then go to Advanced tab.
5. You will see the Incoming Mail server.

By default, the incoming mail server is set to 110, you may change it to 995 and then select SSL. Then close and reopen your Outlook and click the Send/Receive button.

Now, if you're just using a Web e-mail like Gmail or Yahoo mail, you need to check your storage. There's a possibility that you reached the quota storage of your email that's why you are not receiving emails. You need to contact your email provider for this problem.

If you have a router on your network, you need to check the router settings and perform a Port Forwarding. You have to open the port 110 or 995 so that you could receive e-mails.

These are the things that you need to check and consider.

Have a great day!

Can't download outlook can't send e-mail


Right click on the letter
drop down to SEND TO: mail recipient...(that's it-address and send)
If you have Outlook Express is the baby (free) that comes with Windows Operating System...so if that is what you want, START->PROGRAMS->OUTLOOK EXPRESS ... now if you are talking about just plain "OUTLOOK" that is a program purchased in Microsoft Office Suite- Word-Excel-Publisher-Outlook-Access...like that
You do have your email set up to send-Yes...if no call your ISP (internet service provider) and have them talk you through it on the phone. You're paying for the service and they are usually pretty good at helping.
I hope I understood you and gave you some help.

Can not send email from outlook 2003. send: smtp.att.yahoo.com ssl 465


Firstly you need to enable the POP3 settings in yahoo by going to the Options>Mail options>POP & Forwarding.
After that you need  Incoming Mail (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP) : pop.mail.yahoo.com

Outgoing Mail : smtp.mail.yahoo.com

In Advanced Tab Outgoing mail Server (SMTP) : 465 (SSL)
Incoming mail (POP3) : 110 (SSL) OR  995 (SSL)

Your outgoing mails should have been stuck in the outbox folder of your mail.

Please check the outgoing mail server settings from Tools --- Accounts

Let me know what happens.
