There was a problem logging onto your mail server. Your Password was rejected. Account: 'pop3.freeserve.com', Server: 'pop3.freeserve.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR [AUTH] Invalid login/password pair', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92 is that because we are not with freeserve any more.
Similar probs with Microsft Outlook I think, It appears to be there but the test email I tried to send wont.
I am not bothered about adding my hotmail or yahoo acoounts to it I would like to set up a new one with either Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express. The problem I have is that I dont know what my pop mail server is, (hubby used to do all that. ... I am determined to do this and sort all the other probs I have with this puter lol"
