Outlook Express e-mail issues

By | December 1, 2006


Unable to receive/send e-mails –

a) For incoming mail server –
Tool>Accounts>Mail>Properties>Servers

In the incoming mail server(POP3) should be changed to –

“mail.yourdomainname.com”

b) The incoming mail server (POP3) account name and password should be entered accordingly.

Tools>Accounts>Mail>Properties>Servers

Type the account name and password –

Primary account username – username

But in the case of creation of alternative e-mail using Cpanel, the username will be [email protected]

c) If POP3 is using the wrong port number –

Tools>Accounts>Mail>Properties>Advanced

Change the SSL port number to 110.

d) Check if the mail client is using SSL –

Tools>Accounts>Mail>Properties>Advanced

Uncheck the option to use SSL.

e) Mail client has been set up to use Secure Password Authentication –

Tools>Accounts>Mail>Double click on e-mail account that is set up>Click on servers>Check the box – My server requires authentication.

f) Mail servers should be as follows –
SMTP: mail.yourdomain.com
POP3: mail.yourdomain.com

g) Remove and create the e-mail account through Cpanel and check if works.

h) If yet, it is malfunctioning, The ISP will be blocking outside e-mail servers, in this situation you must use their outgoing e-mail servers.

i) If yet, there is an error, follow the steps mentioned below –

If using windows>click on start>Run>enter: telnet yourdomain.com 25

Observe the results. If you get this:
220-manou.bodhost.com.com ESMTP Exim 3.36 #1 Sun, 8 Feb 2004 14:20:15 -0500
220-We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited,
220 and/or bulk e-mail.

In error persists, we will need to use their outgoing mail servers.
