MSN mail using Outlook Express

  ray27 19:11 22 Jun 2003

I am having problems receiving mail using Outlook Express on ntlworld and have been for the last three weeks .

It just hangs when it gets to the authorising stage and keeps telling me that my pop mail provider is not responding wait 6o seconds?

I keep on clicking it and eventualy it may connect and I will recive mail sometimes days old

Everything is set up ok in accounts and it must be ok as it will eventually receive mail but they are all stored up somewhere and I receive them all at once about two or three days later.

I have signed up for an MSN account and can use that ok using MSN explorer but I would like to use it with outlook

Can this be done?

If it can I would need the pop and smpt info can any one advise?

you can get hotmail email with outlook express
i have just set mine up and it works fine,but as far as i know(and i could be wrong)you cannot get msn just get yourself a hotmail account its free and it works with outlook express.
