I'm having trouble setting up my email connection in Windows 7 using Windows Live Mail. (what a curse losing Outlook Express) I have just bought a new computer and my main email address is working fine it's a broadband ADSL connection [email protected] - but I have a 2nd email address which is [email protected]. I can receive into it but cannot send - anyone have any ideas please?

On your onetel address the POP3 server should be onetel, but your outgoing (SMTP) server must be the same as btinternet.com

Thanks Sea Urchin I tried that changed the SMTP to the bt setting but emails still wont go. any other suggestions please?

The reason that your onetel mail is not being sent is because your outgoing settings are still wrong. Check very carefully

The settings for your btinternet should be:

Incoming (POP3) mail.btinternet.com


Outgoing (SMTP) mail.btinternet.com

The outgoing server requires authentication so tick the box at the bottom of the server window.


The settings for onetel should be:

Incoming (POP3) mail.onetel.com

Outgoing (SMTP) mail.btinternet.com

Also the outgoing mail server requires authentication, so again tick the box.
