Hi, i was trying to set up a new account with outlook express 6 after following all the instructions from my isp (freeserve) i get a pop up box when i open outlook asking me to confirm my usre name and password in which i do then i get an error message saying host cant be found. Pleasew is there something i'm missing?

On the server tab does it say pop.freeserve.com smtp.freeserve.com?

yes i have triple checked everything, can i just mention that when i open outlook the box for rembering password is greyed out, i dont know if this would make a difference for starting a new account tough.

What operating system are you running?

Can't stop so....

One way to fix this is to select the Mail tab Select your mail account from the list and choose the Remove button.

Recreate the mail account.
