friend set-up email accounts on freeserve pay as you go connection. Now just upgraded to broadband connection via a third party monthly package.works fine (speedtouch usb modem)Im unable to get the email SMTP settings accepted in outlook 2003 even though they work ok in PYG mode. The BB mail goes off and collects inbox ok but wont send at all. any ideas
Set the smtp to whatever the new connection settings are (If I remember right) e.g. if your smtp setting used to be smtp.freeserve.co.uk but your new provider is tiscali. set the smtp setting to smtp.tiscali.co.uk. Sorry if I've got this wrong but I'm almost sure that is your problem.
handful. thanks but its not the smtp settings..PC Bilbo..read your thread link thanks however the pop settings are the same.& correct ..when checked on wanadoo site.. ventanas yes similar message but forget exactly what it says ,there tommorrow to try rectify with latest Ideas..Graham.thanks..Quack . I have new accounts to setup/Add to outlook from the new Isp.allready have full data for that,and will be done tommorrow. The current situ is Im going to change the settings to use 3rd party access .within outlook properties. Ill advise if that sorts it in the evening of the 19th.. Thanks everyone.
it appears if the SMTP connection doesnt get accessed from the original account access is denied..no matter what the pop3 settings used....As the original dial-up account no longer used due to going elsewhere for BB account. We ve set up a new account system for email on new BB account address. Thanks for your time folks.
