What advanced settings?

In the POP type > pop.virgin.net

In the SMTP type > smtp.virgin.net

Strike that.

Input >> mail.virgin.net in BOTH the SMTP and the POP.

The advanced settings should be set by default, if not, its

Outgoing mail set to "25"

Incoming mail "125"

Mine is mail.virgin.net and smtp.virgin.net

advanced 25 and 110

But my account is from when virgin first started, maybe it has changed ?

Port is 110

Funny old game innit...

Seems it all works on virgin, but others have to be so precise.

On my telefonica account it has to be a dollar sign, not an @ sign in the email addy, otherwise it throws up an error.lol
