I use both Virgin and Hotmail accounts with OE, but how do I send messages through my Hotmail, as at the moment Virgin are having problems??
Go to the msn hotmail web site and log in to create the e-mail message on line.
i take it that it cannot be done in OE then.
Yes it can be done in OE. I don't understand your problem though.
Have you set up your hot-mail account in OE?
If it sends mail through the main smtp server, nothing can be sent. I think Virgin use the NTL servers and they are doing maintenace at the moment, it will come back soon.
I can recieve messages in OE from Hotmail, but cannot send them through it, I have to go onto their web site to do it.How do I set up OE to send messages via HM??
By default your email is sent throught smtp.virgin.net, you'll probably get an error message saying it can't relay if you try smtp.hotmail.com.
I don't believe you can send a message using OE via your hotmail, only can use OE to receive messages sent to your hotmail (as octal I believe is saying).click here for more about it.
Yes that is what happens, so basically it can't be done through OE.It is just that for the second time in a week or so Virgin is done for maintenance and i though that I could use Hotmail without logging onto their site.Never mind will have to live with it.Thanks to all.
I can send mail from my Hotmail account from Outlook Express with no problem and nothing to set up (having set up the account in the first place, of course).
