Lycos Email

  HV 16:07 03 Oct 04

I have a Lycos plus email account which I am trying to access through outlook express but keep getting an error message:-

Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: '', Server: '', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F

I have checked all the settings and they seem ok.

Does anyone have any idea's. Also does anyone know if you can access Lycos direct for email services instead of via an ISP ?

You need the sycronisation software from Lycos. I can't seemed to find it on their site though. This is what Lycos have to say about it: click here You may be able to find it in you primium mail, I only use the free one.

HV, to download the Lycos inside synchronisation software, login to your Lycos email account, click on Settings, click on the Access Anywhere tab and the Lycos inside option is there.
