I can get as far as this and then ...nothing. My OE still works fine on the old NTL settings though.

old OE settings for NTL (which still works for mine but I was originally setup on NTL...not sure if this would work for new customers).

My settings:

Incoming mail server POP3

Incoming mail pophost1.(email service providers name...no brackets)

outgoing mail smtp.ntlworld.com

OH ,the joys of computering, eh??

Hi.Remind them to go into,Taskbar and start menu.Start menu.Customise and tick the e-mail box with Outlook Express showing on the dropdown box,Just in case they have more than one e-mail address.

you have a point!! I now have visions of them having tried to send a mail and it bouncing back to them and them not knowing why::((

  bof:) 13:14 13 Feb 2007

can they not setup a seperate hotmail free account and send it from there?

Its fairly straightforward if they follow the instructions

I am on NTL Broadband, now Virgin Media.

Just looked at my settings in OE and they are:

Incoming: pop.ntlworld.com and
Outgoing: smtp.ntlworld.com

Still working OK.

has this now definitly gone over TO Virgin media?and if so I presume you have had to change your OE settings to enable mails to be sent and received?

No you don't need to change anything. Blueyonder/Telewest is also now Virgin Media but my settings are still blueyonder's.
