POP & SMTP Settings in Outlook Express

Plus List of Pop and Smtp ISP Settings (below)

by Karl Davis

 

 

Add Email Account

Open Outlook Express and from the Tools menu, click Accounts. Click Add Mail and then Type in your Display Name (When you Send Email, your name will appear in the From field of the outgoing message).Click Next and insert your email address. Click Next and then select from the pull-down menu Pop3 where it says "MY Incoming Mail Pop Server is.....(POP3) server. e.g. type in pop.lineone.net.

Now do the same for the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) server. e.g. smtp.lineone.net. Click Next and type in your Account Name and your password and click Next and then follow the prompts.

Ensure you are connected online and hopefully the server will download your email and you will be ready to send and receive etc.

The connection settings or account information provided to you by your ISP or system administrator might be incorrect, or the ISP's servers or software might not be working properly, so check them carefully for mistakes.

If your settings match the ISP information, and you still cannot receive or send email contact your ISP to verify that you have the correct information and that the ISP servers are operating correctly.

Before contacting your ISP, you can create a log of the commands that have been sent to and from your e-mail servers. This can be useful for troubleshooting.

 

Create A Log File

On the Tools menu, click Options.
On the Maintenance tab, under Troubleshooting, select the type of server you want to create a log for.

Log files can get quite large. When you finish troubleshooting, make sure you clear this option using the steps provided above.
Log files are named by server type and have a .log extension (for example pop3.log, smtp.log).

 

Unwanted Spam Messages or Blocking messages from a sender or domain

You can block messages from a particular sender or domain. The domain is the name following the @ symbol in an e-mail address.

From your e-mail Inbox select a message from a sender you want to block. On the Message menu, click Block Sender.

When you block a sender or domain, no e-mail or news message from that sender or domain will arrive in your Inbox or in the news messages you read. E-mail from blocked senders goes directly into your Delete folder. Newsgroup messages from blocked senders are not displayed, Blocking a sender applies to standard POP e-mail only. It does not apply to HTTP e-mail or IMAP messages.

Remember that you can add several email accounts in Outlook Express, You can receive any email account from any dial-up normally but you must remember to change the smtp setting for outgoing mail to the isp you are dialed into for each account. e.g. I have a lineone Email Account, but I use Aol to connect as my ISP so I specify my settings as follows:

Incoming Mail (POP3) pop.lineone.net

Outgoing Mail (SMTP) smtp.compuserve.com
