I am using a web based email service with Windows Vista. When, for example, I want to send a photograph I right click and select Mail Recipient which opens Windows Mail but when I try to send the message I get a message about missing SMTP and Pop. What are these? Can I get Mail Recipient to go to my Web based email?
I fairly sure you cannot get Mail Recipient to open webmail. What it does is open a program on your system and in your case the default e-mail program is Windows Mail which you don't use and haven't set up an account with smtp and pop settings.
mfletch. I tried creating a new account in Windows mail but when I tried to send something to follow I got the following "The host 'pop3' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'pop3', Server: 'pop3', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D. What does this mean and how might I correct it?
