Help with Virgin email & Vista

  MIKE. 14:23 19 Jan 08

I helped a friend yesterday to set up a new PC which has Vista home premium. The only real trouble I have encounted is trying to set up is his Virgin email account, his account email is [email protected]. I cannot seem to find the definitive pop/smtp settings for Virgin working with Vista. Does anyone out there have an idea what it should be many thanks in expectation.

many thanks Sea Urchin & anskyber for your answer. I did not want to reply untill I had found out the reason for windows email not working. The reason appears to be AVG if I remove AVG the windows email works, as soon as I put AVG back it fails. This appears to be because AVG somehow blocks the ports used by the Virgin Email account. Again thanks again folks for your help.

As you will see from the following information AVG can be used Vista as long as you disable the email scanning feature - you will still be covered by the program's system protection.
