There are several possibilities for that:

  1. You entered the wrong username
  2. You entered the wrong password
  3. Entered the wrong username and password
  4. Keyboard could have sticky keys
The possible solutions would be:
  1. Click on the "forgot username and password" link
  2. Answer the security questions it'll ask (birthday, name of pet, where you met your spouse, etc.)
  3. After that they'll send you your username and you make a new password
  4. But first try opening your mail with another computer or keyboard

Let me know how it goes bro.

There might be an invalid configuration on your windows mail that's it keeps on asking for username and password. I suggest you have to reconfigure the account settings.

Getting outlook to work; won't connect to server


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.

I do hope this helps! Take care!

The host 'SMTP' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'POP3', Server: 'SMTP', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error...


You want to use these settings to  configure a mail client for yahoo:

Incoming mail server settings
POP server: plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com
Use SSL
Port: 995

Outgoing mail server (SMTP) settings
SMTP server: plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Use SSL
Port: 465 (or 587 if your ISP is blocking 465)

And, of course, you also need to put in:
Username (yahoo login username)
Email Address
Password (yahoo password)

Good luck!

When I tried to send email from Outlook, the Internet Service Provider replied -ERR [AUTH] invalid user/password. How can I correct this error?? My ISP is att.net. I have not found a solution on that...


This means that your user/password combination is wrong for that email server. So double check that you have the right password and user name entered for that account in Outlook. If you're 100% sure you have it right, then you might be using the wrong email/authentication server. If you continue to have problems and are located near Washington DC, feel free to contact me through my website.

I cannot send/receive e-mails. Computer is telling me server is okay ???


The most common problem if you are using a POP account with a mail client is your username/password is messed up or your servers are not configured correctly. Check the POP and the SMTP servers to be sure they haven't been entered incorrectly.
Also, if you need authentication, be sure it's checked. Most often you need to check the outgoing server box that says "use the same username and password as the incoming server.

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.

Setting up existing e-mail onto new pc.


wel smtp is your outgoing mail provider.

example.

email account kpn
internet account kpn

correct settings:
pop.kpn.nl
smtp.kpn.nl

email account kpn
internet acount xs4all.

this is the correct settings:

pop.kpn.nl with correct username and password
smtp.xs4all.nl

as you see you have to take the smtp address of your internet ADSL provider.

good luck.
