    Email Accounts - new ISP (XP)

    <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23>
    Just changed ISPs for our website and can't get email to work. ISP assures me email is set up and working properly from their end. This is a dedicated Linux server and my email account settings in Outlook just don't work, although they have with 2 other ISPs in the past.

    I keep getting error messages that say:

    Task 'Charts at vsccs.com - Sending and Receiving' reported error (0x80042108) : 'Outlook is unable to connect to your incoming (POP3) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'

    They say they do not support Outlook and I'm on my own. This has been going on for 48 hours and I just don't think they are listening to me. I have changed the Outlook Email Account settings over 25 times and NOTHING works. I'm losing business because I depend on email to receive orders and respond to inquiries.

    Logon to incoming mail server (POP3) is where the 'Test Message' fails. It does the first three tasks just fine.

    I am DESPERATE. Can I find someone I can pay to get these email accounts set up properly?

    I am a very experienced computer user but not Linux.

    PLEASE HELP WITH ANY SUGGESTIONS! <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    Who is your ISP?
    What are the pop and smtp settings you have for this "Account"?
    How do you connect to the internet?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Are you able to see the mail with MollyMail or access it with Yahoo! or another webmail provider?
