I switched to att.net for incredimail and am unable to send e-mai


If you are using windows mail you need to modify you account settings for the new mail server. You need to know your user name and password for your account. You will also need the Incoming Mail(POP3) and Outgoing Mail(SMTP) and if the server requires authentication. You will get this information from AT&T. Once you obtain this info you can modify the current account or add a new one using under the tools tab then accounts.

Outlook express


0x800CCC78 SMTP_REJECTED_SENDER Unknown sender. This is caused by having the incorrect e-mail address in the Reply-To field.

You may have to authenticate in outlook express by putting in the SMTP server name of your internet provider instead of yahoo
for example
Incoming = smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Outgoing = smtp.yourISPservername
Some isp's will not let you send out with a different smtp server than theirs.
It's why you can receive but not send.

Is it possible to connect MS Outlook to yahoo.com?


yahoo's UK page has instructions on this and here they are: id rather paste theirs than type my own...

  1. From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
  2. Select the "Mail" tab.
  3. Click the "Add" button.
  4. From the Add menu, click "Mail."
  5. In the text box labelled Display Name, type your name and click "Next."
  6. In the Email Address box, type your Yahoo! Mail address (be sure to include "@yahoo.com") and click "Next."
  7. Under "My incoming mail server is a…" select "POP3."
  8. Type "pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk" in the Incoming Mail (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP) Server box.
  9. Type "smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk" in the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server box.
  10. Click "Next."
  11. In the Account Name box, type your Yahoo! Mail ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com").
  12. In the Password box, type your Yahoo! Mail password.
  13. If you want Outlook Express to remember your password, check the "Remember password" box.
  14. Do not check the boxes labelled "Log on using Secure…"
  15. Click "Next."
  16. Click "Finish."
Important: The Yahoo! Mail SMTP server now requires authentication. To turn this setting on:
  1. From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
  2. Select the "Mail" tab.
  3. Double-click the account labelled "pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk."
  4. Select the "Servers" tab.
  5. Check the box next to "My Server Requires Authentication."
  6. Click "OK."
To control deletion of messages from the Yahoo! Mail server:
  1. From the Tools menu, choose "Accounts."
  2. Select the "Mail" tab.
  3. Double-click the account labelled "pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk."
  4. Select the "Advanced" tab.
  5. If you'd like to keep a copy of your email messages on the Yahoo! Mail server, check the box next to "Leave a copy of messages on the server." If you want to delete your messages from the Yahoo! Mail server after viewing them in Outlook Express, don't check the box.
If you're unable to send email, try using port 587 when sending via Yahoo!'s SMTP server. Here's how to make this change:
  1. From the "Tools" menu, select "Accounts."
  2. Select your Yahoo! POP account and click the "Properties" button.
  3. Click the "Advanced" tab.
  4. Next to "Outgoing server (SMTP"), change port 25 to 587.
  5. Click "Apply." Then click "OK" and "Close."

E mail error550 I am not receiving or sending


You need to check your outgoing mail server name and the authentication associated with the account you are using. In other words, your email client (like Outlook or Thunderbird) has an outgoing mail server name and an account name and password setting. Try this:
Open your Outlook (or other mailer) settings (Tools > Accounts)
Go to View/Change email account for the email account you are having problems with.
Check that the SMTP Server is set to yourdomain.com
Go into the "More settings", "Outgoing Server" tab and make sure that the option "My server requires authentication" for the Outgoing server is checked ON. Save and close all windows. Try again.

It will be slightly different for other mail programs, but you should see the same type of information, but maybe in other tabs/windows.

I keep getting error 530 when I try to send mail out of incredi mail


This error is caused when the smtp server is not configured properly.


Resolution:
  1. From the Tools menu, choose Accounts.
  2. Highlight the account and select properties.
  3. Select the Servers tab.
  4. Check the box next to My Server Requires Authentication.
  5. Usually you use the same account for POP3 for authentication. If not then you need to enter the account details by clicking more settings
  6. Click OK.

  7. Hope this helps
    good luck.

I am unable to get into my microsoft outlook express email. It says my password is not correct.


Go to OE/ Tools/ Options/ Send tab/ News sending format section: check
plaintext, not html

If its the password for the exchange server authentication, it has to be the same as your webmail account online!

Go to tool> email accounts > reenter the password under the server tab and the settings button against "my server requires authentication" on the same page.

Make sure the passwords you enter here is the same that you used to login to your webmail account with the same e-mail id!

save the settings and restarte outlook express..

Regards,
Ronald.
