When I try to send an email from one particular email address it will no go. Then I send it through another email address and that works. I am using Outlook Express. I did set the email accounts up myself and am now thinking I have done something wrong. Coes anyone know anything about what port to use...and what is a port? Should I change this setting or leave it. I usually never change it but I recall the error had something about a port in it.February 10, 2009 at 11:16 pm #31151
Hi Jason,I had errors with Outlook Express.I rang my Internet providor and the Technical Guys reset my Email account and fixed the problem I had. Worth a try. 🙂EDIT. You can follow Mitz guide,and you can print out the instructions from Microsoft. Send a test Email to yourself,to see if it is sending OK.These links will help you check,that you have your account, set up properly.You have to know who your Mail Server is. Your providor will give you these details.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nr7ttXdtIHQ[/youtube]http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/community/columns/mailserver.mspxFebruary 11, 2009 at 11:01 pm #31152
DSTM is right..The first thing you should do is contact your ISP (Internet service provider) or your email server provider and ask them what you have done wrong. Sometimes they will turn around and say there is something wrong on their end or they will help you fix the problem.If you just want to fix it yourself you can find the settings for most email servers online..For example I use bigpond in Australia and the settings are:incoming mail server: mail.bigpond.comoutgoing mail server: mail.bigpond.comPassword: your passwordUsername: Your usernamePort 25 (default port already set)If you have a godaddy email, look up godaddy email server settings. The list goes on...March 19, 2009 at 1:00 pm #31153
thank you very much. It turned out to be my fault as I had entered the wrong settings..But your posts made me realize my mistake and now I have fixed it…I had the wrong port number. I had no idea it had to be changed.May 15, 2013 at 8:05 am #31154
Then you will try to use another email service provider. As my opinion Email.biz and gmail is best.
