Hi,

I have an email account with the good old Freeserve. Now i want to use it with outlook. I'm having a little trouble with it though. I'm struggling with getting the correct details. When i test the account settings, a window keeps popping up asking for my email details. I'm assuming that Ive entered the wrong details. But I'm struggling to search for the correct details since Freeserve has changed names so many times.

The details i have stuck in is this.

Name: Rob
Email address: [email protected]

Incoming mail server: pop.orangehome.co.uk
Outgoing mail server: smtp.orangehome.co.uk

User name: [email protected]
Password: #####

What have i done wrong here?

hope to here a solution soon,

Cheers

Try your account name as robat.fsmail.net

Instructions for Orangehome would have this. See

i think your mail server settings should read "freeserve" and not "orangehome"...

It doesnt work. The link wont work for me because my firewall blocks it.

changing the orangehome to freeserve doesnt work.

Holding down ctrl wont work because thats for the google pop up blocker aint it.

Ive found out what my problem is. fsmail.net is a web-based account only. It doesnt provide the pop3 or http access.
