  1. Problem adding a POP3 email account


    I have just upgraded to Windows 10 but the mail tile won't allow me to add my usual POP3 email account. I have entered all details correctly as in Outlook Express, but it won't sync and then gives me an error code.
    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    :)

  2. Receiving Outlook Calendar Invitations

    My main email account is a POP3 account which has no calendar associated with it. I receive calendar invitations to this account regularly. I got around the accept invitation problem by forwarding my POP3 email to my Outlook.com account, so now I receive
    my email in both the POP3 email account I've created on the phone and via the forwarded email folder within my Outlook.com account. If I receive any appointment invitations, I just accept them in my Outlook.com account. Then the appointment is added to my
    Outlook.com calendar (which syncs to my phone).

    I am trying to send email from a different account/address than what my email account shows on WP8. It works in outlook.com

    I have an email account that does not allow for any access except POP3. So I added the account to outlook.com so it will send and receive on behalf of the POP3 account. It also added a folder for that account in outlook.com.



    On my WP8, I can see the folder and the emails appear; however, unlike outlook.com I am not able to send from that pop3 account. Inside outlook.com (and outlook 2007/2010 for that matter) I can select a different "account" to send from. I am not seeing
    how to select a different sender account.



    Suggestions?

  5. As an experiment I tried it, no joy.
    I think this is the problem.

    It seems very basic as an Email client anyway. Thunderbird has always served my needs . Try it !

    It has a problem with 2 step authentication. What is the domain?
    Is your username the same as email address?

    then select either my MS account or my POP account before I can view my emails.

    It's horrible, it's like a phone app. Thunderbird for me.

  10. What is the error code?

    What is your Mail server?

    Post a screen shot of your configuration - BUT.....make sure you remove all personal information, such as your email address.
    Server names are common, port #s are common - just remove your personal info - look twice, no look thrice, sometimes it's on the title bar.

    Here's how you can grab a screen shot that shows the issue and attach it to a new post.

    Double check your server names - a common mistake (I do it often) is to type an at sign (@) instead of a period (.)
    Most servers want SSL, some don't though
    and common ports are 465 and 587(or 995) - you provider probably has that information on their web pages.

    Setting up eMail is a lot like addressing a letter - you have to get the information correct if you want things to get where they're intended *Wink

  11. I think that error code means that it can't find the host (No such host is known).

    If you post screen shots of your configuration and identify your server, members can better help you solve the issue.

    Remember to blank out or remove your eMail address from all screen shots. Look thrice before posting.

    Remove personal info like email address and name etc. Removing server names has no purpose lol *Smile

  14. Ok thanks marcosdipaolo,

    It looks as though you have your own domain, and you say that the ip address get you further, but still no mail.

    I don't see the ports and I can't determine what the host wants without knowing who the host is.
    If you just want o find the eMail settings on the host page and post those here, that would be great.
    Sometimes, it's a little thing - changing port 995 to 587 or requires SSL or does not require SSL.
    It's all in the definition.

    What eMail did you previously use? I used Windows Essentials Mail (weMail aka WLM).

    I've abandoned Win10 mail and installed weMail - much better control over configuration and messages.
    but, you have to turn on .NET 3.5 to get it to install.
