Please help,  We have had to put in a new hard drive into our desktop pc. Although our internet is working, I need to do the email account. It is wanting to know what the incoming and outgoing servers are? Can someone please tell me where I can find this infomation. Thank you

Who is your ISP, as that will determine what server addresses you need to enter?

We are with talktalk broadband.

Incoming mail server (POP3) is mail.talktalk.net

Outgoing mail server (SMTP) is smtp.talktalk.net

"am i right in saying it is talktalk?"

Talktalk is an ISP - but is it yours?

Sorry we can't guess, you'll have to tell us.

If it is, go to their website and they'll have instructions for setting up an e-mail account

You say you are with Talktalk,if you use their email then mgmmc has given you the info you need.Its your email you are setting up,you are allready using your isp as an internet provider.What email client do you use to access email?

Thank you Tullie, please can you tell me what do you mean "client"?

"what do you mean "client"?"

Which program do you use to get your e-mails?

Outlook Express or Outlook, for example?
