I have a problem that I can send email

but it will not allow me to connect to receive email as it keeps asking for logging details which are already there!
Any help would be greatful!

a. Check that you have entered the correct POP3 mail server details as given to you by your ISP.

b. On the properties of the account in OE what have you got ticked with regard to Server Authentication? Quite often your issue is caused by having this option ticked/enabled.

click here possibly.

Does anybody know what should be in the internet accounts on the above as it is only showing pop.sky.com as default with nothing else? which looks strange to me!!

I believe they should be pop.sky.com and smtp.sky.com for incoming and outgoing respectively.

Yes Vog thanks for that but I mean what other mail accounts should there be like for local intranet as mine is only showing pop.sky.com (any connection)

Does anybody know or use Outlook express as I need the internet account default settings as one of my kids has delectid the 4 other setting in it for mail ?

I am looking for the four accounts that are set as default already in outlook express ie. Local network etc etc.

Thanks if anybody knows!
