My friend has an email address along the lines of [email protected]. He says that people have always been able to put what they like in front of @smithstreet.wanadoo.co.uk and he could download his messages into OXpress. I have tried and sent him an email and put abc in front of @smithstreet.wanadoo.co.uk and the email certainly arrives in his web based Orange Inbox. Does anyone know how to setup OXpress so that all emails sent to ....@smithstreet.wanadoo.co.uk arrive in his Inbox? Assistance will be greatly appreciated.
Regarding the abc in front of@*******.I tried that and the email came back to me & went into my inbox in OE6,I think that you would have to set the OE6 to be the default email.'Not orange',Open OE6 tools > options > Select Make Default,at the bottom right. Hope that's what your after.daiol.
Thanks Daiol. Don't think perhaps I have made clear the problem. OutXpress is the default mail manager. It would seem that it is possible to put anything you like in front of @smithstreet.wanadoo.co.uk and the emails certainly arrive in the Orange server and you can view them by logging into the website. My friend says that he could always download them into OutXpress up until someone fiddled with his PC. It must be something to do with the mail settings in outXpress. just need to know if it is possible to set it up to download the emails?
I have done a bit of research. Could this be something to do with IMAP, which I am unfamiliar with? Does anyone know what you put in the incoming and outgoing mail server boxes for an Orange IMAP account? Am i barkin up the right tree?
Thanks Ened. Still struggling with this one. Basically I just want to know if it is possible to download into Out Xpress any emails that are sitting in my pals account on the Orange server and is so, what you put in the boxes in oOut Xpress. Still need help on this one!
