Having trouble sending emails

  DIYgirl 19:12 14 Oct 2004

I use a wanadoo address as my main email account, and recently had to retrieve this account as the settings got messed up. Not too much of a problem, but I use an evemail dial-up service to access the internet and am having trouble sorting that out.

When I click tools/accounts/properties/servers (for the wanadoo account) the box for Server Information/Outgoing Mail should have the details for the Evemail server in it. But it has Wanadoo server information in it instead. I know what I need to change it to (I have done this before!) but can't change it as the box is greyed out and I can't work out how to get access to it.

I am sure that someone out there can help me sort out this problem--it is, surely, minor in the scheme of things and I am a dolt to not know how to do it. Thank you all in advance!

How about recreating the account that you want - simply add it as a new one and delete the old one.

ie make a new wanadoo account from scratch with wanadoo pop3 server but evemail smtp server.
