    Outlook Question?

    I am trying to set-up my email accounts in Outlook (XP). I have filled in all the information correctly, but when I go to test the connection, Outlook tells me that:

    "Log onto incoming mail server (POP3): Unable to logon to the incoming mail server (POP3). Please verify the settings in the User Name, Password and E-mail fields."

    I have double checked these fields and I am sure that they are all correct. Is there anything else that I could be doing wrong?

    Verfy with your host that you are using the correct UN/PW.

    Agreed. It could be that you need to be using your full email address for your username depending on your server for it to authenticate properly. Have you tried it both ways?

    Another guess is that CAPS LOCK might be on which would cause problems. P/W's are generally case sensative.
