TalkTalk email settings, please

Just off to configure a new modem installation manually, because TT don't do a Vista CD. I'd like to be sure of the email settings before I arrive.

X-cellent. Thanks.

You'll need to send an e-mail from another e-mail address to the new TT e-mail account to activate it.

Rather confusing, Vista doesn't appear to have Outlook Express, only Windows Mail. Is this correct? Didn't have any success anyway, took nearly 2 hours to get online, so ran out of time.

Noted, thanks.

The username is in the format (telephone number) One would think this was the default email address? Wrong. It cannot be used for sending and receiving mail click here

You have to set one up, then get someone to Email you.

NEVER make assumptions, regardless of how logical they may seem, where TalkTalk are concerned. Why should it be so involved/complicated to set up an e-mail address with them?

The phonenumber and password are purely for logging onto the TalkTalk's home page. TT provides the password, which is in the form of lower case letters and numerals.

When signing up for TalkTalk you are asked to state the way you require your name to be used for your e-mail address in front of:

and your chosen password.

The name is usually done on the lines of joe.bloggs but could be, for instance, joe_bloggs

This username (e-mail address) and password are required to enter the My Account section of the TalkTalk home page.


There is absolutely nothing involved/complicated about setting up a TalkTalk e-mail adress - it is very similar to that of many other ISPs.
