I am having real problems setting up a friends email account with talk talk, I can log into the account using the username & password supplied, I have also registered 2 other more personal names and accompanying passwords, yet whenever I try to log in they are not recognised, I have sent emails to both addresses to activate the accounts but I am unable to log in to receive them, any ideas, there support page is no help
it is best to discuss the progress or not of this matter on the thread please so others can also participate in the discussion ; are you having problems logging into the actual web mail itself? or is the problem with the OE trying unsuccessfully to pick up the mails?
set up Outlook Express account to collect email Servers incoming mail server: POP3 Incoming mail [POP3]: mail.talktalk.net Outgoing mail[SMTP]: smtp.talktalk.net
Account name: *whatever you [email protected] Password: *whatever you chose* note this is different to the Accounts Password that talktalk gave you ------- Webmail logon Account name: *whatever you [email protected] Password: *whatever you chose* note this is different to the Accounts Password that talktalk gave you
Thankyou lotvic for your advice & I will do as you suggest and set it up through outlook express but I still dont understandh how I have gone wrong with the webmail? but will not spend more time fretting about it thankyou for you advice.

"The problem is logging onto their web mail from their home pageI have succesfully created an email adress and password using the default address given, but when I enter the new address and password, all I get is address not recognised, for the address to be activated someone hasto post a message to it, this has been done, but I am unable log into the webmail to read anything sent, "
a thought; are you sure the web page IS on line?
and are you sure you are entering the e mail address corectly? one character wrong and it will fail !! did you make a note of the new addresses so you can check them?
I am having the same problem with email ,despite setting it up as advised above,I just repeated pop ups to enter password even though I have changed the password this still happens.I am able to receive email but not send it.My email is with Onetel which I get via Outlook Express from Talktalk.The settings are exactly as described above.I have tried Talktalk help who tell me I've done everything properly so it ....should work...famous last words
