Outlook Express - incoming mail

  swapper 22:42 12 Jun 2009

I created a third email address with OE, it is not my default option, I am sure that I have done it correctly (obviously haven't).

I can send mail o.k. but I am not receiving any, I also use yahoo, which I have sent mail to, but when I reply to the new OE address, it does not arrive, any ideas please?

There seems to be some confusion here. Extra Email addresses are set up on request by your ISP.
Accounts have to be set up in OE to send and receive Emails using these addresses. Have you done this ?

correctly in the account properties?

Outlook Express will check mailboxes on more than one POP mail server, but you must give it the server address and the username and password to the mailbox.

Thank you for the response.

I have one email account with Virgin, within that account I can have other email addresses, which I have, its just that I am having problems with this particular address that I want to create, i.e. I can send from it but not receive to it?
Forum Editor,
I have checked and rechecked the details and they seem to be o.k.:-
Mail account :- myname
User information :- myname
E-Mail address :- [email protected]
Reply address:- [email protected]
ticked - Include this account when receiving mail or synchronizing.

Incoming mail (POP) - POP3.blueyonder.co.uk
Outgoing Mail (SMTP) - SMTP.blueyonder.co.uk
Account name - the one provided by Virgin
Password - my password
I really am stuck?

Morning swapper

I don't think it matters but I don't include the '3' in the 'POP3'.

Have you tried deleting that account in OE and creating a new one from scratch?

I agree with this post.

Incoming mail pop.blueyonder.co.uk. NOT pop3.

ened, I removed the 3 but got an error message when I restarted, so I had to re enter the 3, I have deleted and restarted the account a few times.

Your e-mail settings appear to be correct:

Try using lower case letters for POP3 and SMTP.

The last time I had a problem like this It turned out to be my firewall,what firewall are you using and what anti-virus.

I have ZA, ad-aware, Spybot, spyware blaster,and a-squared free.
I closed ZA but there was no change, everything is just about up to date.
Its very frustrating that I can send from the new address to another address at yahoo. but I cannot get a reply back to OE. not do I get a Daemon message at Yahoo saying a message cannot be delivered?
