Outlook Express - New Account Dial Up

  Border View 11:25 03 Oct 2003

Please forgive me if this sounds like a silly question, but...

I'm with LineOne and only have one e-mail account with them. Using POP3 etc. I have set up an account with Talk21 and have tried adding this e-mail account to my Outlook Express. OK so far. When its all completed the little screen shows that my LineOne e-mail (default) will dial up LineOne but the Talk21 will dial up any available. I only have one ISP. What other number could Talk21 dial up or will it connect via LineOne after my LineOne e-mail has checked for outgoing and incoming mail.

Sorry again if this sounds silly but my phone bill is bad enough as it is and I don't want Talk21 dialling up another number.

Would appreciate your comments. Thank you.

Thanks everyone for responding. Sorry I've just got back to you.

Thinking it through I realized that my LineOne dial up is the only one I have so theoretically any e-mails to talk21 should come through on Outlook Express.

I've tried a couple of test runs sending an e-mail to myself at talk21. It shows as being downloaded in Outlook Express but doesn't appear in my Inbox. And there is nothing in my Talk21 account.

Can anyone please advise where it has gone?

I have rules in Outlook express which says that anything which is not addressed to my two specific e-mail address (those at LineOne and Talk21) should be deleted. I have tried sending test messages to myself and can see them being downloaded into Outlook Express but they are now showing in my Inbox (at the tearing hair out stage) Can anyone please tell me where these messages are going.

Without a solution looks like I shall have to revert to accessing Talk21 each time I wish to access my e-mails.

Think I'm getting there. Thank you for everyone's help. Lesson - you have to get your Outlook Express Message Rules right.
