Unable to send emails on pop3 account

  Dannyb 23:12 19 Mar 2006

I have a laptop pc with Windows XP. I have copied over my pop3 settings from my home pc but find that whilst I can receive emails in my pop3 account I cannot send any. There is no error notice to report a problem. I can use webmail accounts alright. Can anybody advise as I'm sure it must just be a setting that I need to change.

Looks like your smtp settings-for sending out emails-may be set up incorrect. Let us know know who is your ISP adn what email client you are using?

My ISP is pipex and I use outlook express

sorry, should have mentioned that the setting currently read "smtp.dsl.pipex.net"

sorry, I can't even get that right, it's .com not .net

According to the pipex website, the smtp setting should be set as smtpauth.dsl.pipex.com

It should be "smtpauth.dsl.pipex.com" Your Username should be in the format "abcd12%dsl.pipex.com" Note: % not @

Thanks, I have now tried that but without success.

Make sure that the outgoing server does NOT need authentication. If that doesn`t work I suggest you delete the account and set it up again. If no luck then phone Pipex Tech support - they`ll sort it out for you.
