From Thunderbird and Outlook Express See click here So I have just been round to see how he has got on- still nothing. I got him back onto his server and sorted the password problem there, so at least now the mail is viewable and answerable there. But the E-mail clients still want a password and refuse to accept his 'standard' password that he always uses for everything. Tried the various options in Tools/Options/security/change password in both Outlook Express and Thunderbird - neither worked- for the old password or a new one. Any clues any one?
Since this post I have discovered that I was able to send a test message in IE- password not withstanding so the SMTP aspect is OK Its getting stuff in -POP3 thats the bag - more poking to do in OE and Thunderbird then.
