Windows Mail Problem

  Rob Gibson 17:18 11 Aug 2008


I'm trying to add a fourth email account in Windows Mail. The account settings are the same as my first three accounts, but I can't connect. The error messages suggest "Client Response Invalid" and "Username Invalid". However, I CAN log in and use the account without problems using webmail.

I've checked and re-checked the user ID and password until I'm sick of it! I guess I must be doing something wrong in Windows Mail as the Wemail log-in works ok, but blowed if I can see what.

Can you post the complete error message? Are there any error codes starting 0x800 ? Are you using antivirus email scanning? Have you tried exporting from a working account then importing?

Thanks for the reply.

Well, I went to log in again using Windows Mail in order to copy the exact error message, and guess what? Yes, that's right... It blooming well works now! I've not changed a thing, honest.

I have spent three hours on this. But, now it works. It would be nice to know what was up, but that's how it goes with these things I guess.

I need a drink!
