Email from more than one ISP

  dezi 00:15 06 Jul 2003

Is it possible to have two ISPs place incoming emails into my OEx6 Inbox ? so far no luck, I have to access each seperately...Any thoughts?

In OE click Tools - Accounts. Select an account under the Mail tab and click properties. Make sure that the 'Include this account when....' is ticked. Repeat for all accounts.

Thanks Megatyte, I have the set up as you describe but still have to go to each ISP in order to collect mail at Inbox, BEATS ME!

I went to tools/accounts/properties on my accounts. In the connection tab, my 'always connect to this account using:' is unchecked.

This is on all e-mail accounts (and I have a few!) and I've never had any trouble interrogating all accounts from one isp/

In OE Tools>Accounts your main ISP should be the default with the others as "any (mail) available".

Highlight each ISP e-mail's Properties and enter your username, password, POP3 details etc as required under the General and Server tabs for that particular ISP.

You should then have no problems collecting all your e-mail from your main ISP.

The "always use this account" check box is if you are connecting using a local area network.

It would normally be unchecked as Chris the Ancient rightly points out.

I forgot to point out that you should Add each ISP from which you wish to collect e-mail before entering the details mentioned above via Properties and the General and Server tabs.

Appreciate the help guys but have tried all your advice and their combinations, most tried in the past but I still suffer these error messages. The other ISP (Lineone)email comes through aok in OEx6. Still have to go to ntlworld site to send or collect, not a big problema but would like to get some sleep.... ACH!
