Windows Mail Following upgrade to laptop!

  wigstonman 15:18 16 Jul 2008

I have purchased an Acer 5520 Aspire laptop running Vista and windows mail. I have an Broadband connection with Virgin Media (ex ntl) they are my ISP.

I had no need to copy any stuff from Outlook Express on my old XP PC so i just fired up Windows Mail and enetered all the correct pop/smtp server deatils, username/id and password etc. However Mail will not work! It simply keeps asking for userid and password. Entereing this does nothing - it just pops up again.

Tried removing all norton stuff with reccomended tool - I am stuck now, any help really gratefully receieved!

check the details you've entered very carefully - it's easy to inadvertantly hit a wrong key when entering a password.
