Hi There

I have tried to configure a new email address into outlook express but I have an error message come up when i try to send from it.

First of all can you configure any web based email address into outlook.

I would like to say from the start my knowledge is not that great so go easy on me ok.

I have pasted the error message below.

The host 'SMPT' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'POP3', Server: 'SMPT', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D

The host '(smpt)' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: '(pop.wanadoo.co.uk)', Server: '(smpt)', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D

Also how do i add new email addresses into outlook.

Cheers

Ice

Hi VOG

Thanks for that i have tried what it said and things have changed.

I have not got an error message now but a small box keeps appearing saying please enter your user name and password for the following server.

But i keep clicking ok but it will not go away.

Have you any ideas.

Cheers

send yourself an e mail to the new account which should resolve

I have tried that and the emails dont come through via outlook.

They go fine to my inbox on the web based site but not through outlook.

This is how i set up the new email address in outlook so please tell me if this is right.

Tools , Accounts , Mail , Add , Mail , Enter display name , next , enter new email.

Then on email server names it has POP3 selected at the top then i enter pop.wanadoo.co.uk as incoming mail server then smtp.wanadoo.co.uk as outgoing mail server.

Then i put my ISP user name and password and click finish.

When i then go into internet accounts the new account is listed

So i cant see what the problem is.

I take it you can run more than one email address through the same server eg pop.wanadoo.co.uk via outlook express

Thanks

Hi,
a)Is wanadoo your ISP as well?
b)There should be an error message, if outlook express cannot complete the send/receipt process.

Is your smtp address entered correctly, is the spelling correct?

Should be smtp.wanadoo.co.uk - note double "o"

you keep swapping answers between outlook and outlook expres, they are very different which e mail client are you using?
