Have just set up a new system running XP Home. When trying to send e-mail get following - Error- Connection to server has failed. Account:'pop.ntlworld.com',Server:'pop.ntlworld.com',Protocol:SMTP,Port:25,Secure(SSL):No,Socket Error:10060,Error Number:0X800CCC0E
Any advice please?

Are you trying to send from an NTL account?

Do you have BB connection or dial up. If BB then download Broadband Medic from NTL Home site & see if it can sort your problem.

If you are sending an email it should be sent using smtp.ntlworld.com double check your settings.

For outgoing mail the server should be 'smtp.ntlworld.com'

Thanks for your note in PC Advisor, I am unable to find outgoing server. I am using Outlook Express - would you advise please.
