Just having a look at the email settings for IE5 on blueyonder, they are the same as for IE 6. Are you sure you have set up as shown?

I'm on Freeserve, so I don't know if it's the same. Open OE, click on TOOLS, click on ACCOUNTS, U should get a screen with Internet Accounts, click on PROPERTIES, an other screen appears,, Should have Ur email address in there on the General Tab, goto the SERVERS TAB, Ur SMTP address is in there. Mine looks like this. SMTP.FREESERVE.COM, Out Going mail. POP.FREESERVE.COM, In-Coming Mail.

yep mine is the same except for the isp adresss im not sure what else it could be would my norton firewall affect it?

Those settings are correct, leave the box for secure logon unticked.

In the box above that one, where you put your name and it says.

Your alias @ blueyonder . co . uk

I have left spaces so you can see it in this forum.

Have you put your username in place of the "Your alias" and is your ISP aware of the name you have chosen? When I signed on with my new ISP last week, they gave me a username to use to first log on and that remains my username.

But for the name I wanted to use for my email address, I had to submit one to them, to make sure it was not already in use. They replied back saying I could have the email name but it would take 1 hour to be changed at the server. Does your ISP use the same method?

djohn yep its solved now i changed the alias do i send an email to the tech support of my isp to change my email addres as the username is not what i want to use thanks for the all the help :)

Yes I think you will need to do so, I had to with mine. They gave me a username with a mixture of letters and numbers, this was just so I could sign on for the first time. then as above I asked for a more personal name and they OK it within the hour.

All the settings stayed the same and the only thing I had to change in the wizard was the new username. j.
