Email probs

  Gigs 14:44 18 Oct 2006

I use an email address of say - [email protected].
This I have been using for years with no problems.
A friend of mine gave me a domain name of my own as a birthday present and set me up with an email address using that.
Everything was OK untill I had to reinstall windows and reset my email acount.
I can still receive email using my original 123 account but cannot work out how to enable the second one. Trouble is some people use my second address and I am not getting the mail.
I use Outlook 2003.
Any help would be appreciated.

You will need the set up information from your domain host who I assume also provide the e-mail facility.

I do the same as you and the various bits you fill in for the e-mail account will be specific to your provider. Contact them they will give you the info.

Thanks very much for that anskyber. I will do as you suggest.

A thought for the future. Many of us here use a back up facility. Many use Acronis True Image which allows a complete back up of everything, files settings, e-mail accounts even your OS. The back up is best done to an external facilty (such as an external HDD) but can be done on your own HD.

Restoring is in minutes and all is reinstated for you.

Strangely enough I have just bought an external caddy with an HDD to do just that, too late for the last one of course.
I also have Nero 7 which includes a copy facility. Don't know if this is any good. Any thoughts?

To be honest I do not know enough about Nero 7 to answer that point. I thought it was more for copying converting but others will help I am sure.

This is Acronis, have a look to compare with what Nero does. click here

Hi, Gigs, If you wish to clone everything (including the O/S) to the new HDD instead of copying then there is always the FREE click here for win XP and click here for Win 98SE.

Thanks for your advice. Sorry for the delay in my response but have been away from computing. Your suggestion looks good.

I've been using XXCOPY as a total backup onto a spare hard drive for 4 years now. No problems at all.

I have now read about XXCOPY, looks like it may be worth a try. Thanks again.
