The obvious things to check (and I'll bet you've already been down this
road) is to confirm that absolutely everything is configured right:
Tools --> Accounts... --> Mail --> (select your existing POP account) -->
--> any name for this account
--> user information
--> your name and your E-mail address
--> Organization and Reply address are optional
--> Server information as supplied by your ISP(s)
(e.g., type is POP3, Incoming mail (POP3) at pop1.myisp.com, Outgoing
mail (SMTP)at smtp.anyisp.net, or whatever)
--> Incoming Mail Server Account name, which may be different than your
Most people, and you sound like you are setup like this, leave the
Password blank and do not check Remenber Password. Also you probably don't
have to check Logon Using Secure Password Authentication, unless your POP
provider tells you differently.
Sounds like you're OK with your Outgoing Mail Server.
And of course, you've checked with your ISP about the state of their POP
server(s), and confirmed that they haven't "lost" your account and all that
As required by your physical setup
As required ...
Port numbers are usually 25 for SMTP and 110 for POP3. And unless yoru
ISP has indicated otherwise, you don't need to check SSL.
In general Server timeouts can be fairly short, and the rest of this tab
can be unchecked.
I recently installed OE 6 as part of a Verizon DSL installation on a
cousin's computer. The problem is that the "Remember user name and password"
box is greyed out, so she'll have yo type it in every time she wants
e-mail.. Any solution? Thanks. She's running Win 98, HP 466 Celeron
