Using Google Mail on Outlook

  dawsonc 08:48 23 Apr 2006

I am trying to add an email account to my current Outlook session, but am being directed to the More settings button in outlook with an error message that says that "the Log on to the incoming mail server has failed", and directing me to the advanced tab in More settings.

Any ideas on what settings I need on this tab ?

Progress guys, but the error message occurs when I test settings and I am told to check the email address for sending of the test email. It is right as far as I can see.

How do I then open that new folder in Outlook ?

I see. In fact my mailbox is now an amalgamation of mail from two different mail servers. Is there a way in outlook to create two different mailbox icons in the explorer bar?

Whilst the email account is now added to my Outlook mailbox, when sending or receiving googlemail I am getting the error message saying that the procedure timed out, and that I should contact my service provider. Some sort of SMTP error. I know I am connected to the internet, as my other mails are being downloaded as normal. Any clues ?

If I change the server timeout setting, will that work. Perhaps the errors are because the downloads are longer than the default time out settings ?

The exact error message I am getting is
Task ' - Sending and Receiving' reported error (0x800CCC78) : 'Unable to send the message. Please verify the e-mail address in your account properties. ther server responded: ??0 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS commenad first g1sm352089nfe'

Any thoughts ?
