In Outlook I get the following error message:Task BT_Internet-Receivingreported error Ox80042108.Outlook is unable to connect to your incoming (POP3) e-mail server.If this continues,contact your server/ISP. Instead I am contacting the expertise of the PC Advisor Helpline Forum.I welcome any advice from you.

It may just be BT have a problem with their e-mail server.

If I were you, I'd wait until tomorrow and try again.

Thank you for the reply. The problem has been with me for 3 days but I will do as you say and see if it resolves itself tomorrow.

you can still receive email from a pop server on your old isp but you can not send email on broadband useing your old email connection, you need to set up an email account with your bt broadband so that you can use outgoing mail

How do I do what you suggest?

if BT Broadband Basic has not supplied you with the means to set up a email account through them
then you need to set up an independant email account with yahoo or another one of your choice

You have had POP3/SMTP working with BT basic have you because last time I looked at this it was Net based emails only.

I believe bt internet requires e mail authentication this is done via tools, accounts, mail just a thought and worth a check
