Hi Guys

Just bought new Compaq Laptop and am having a bit of a problem with email. Having set it up I get:
"The host 'SMTP' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'POP3', Server: 'SMTP', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D"

Using Outlook Express.

I've looked around the various helps n' stuff but can't find anything that makes sense to me.

The only thing that is obvious is when doing Connections; Change; Settings; User name stays OK but my password is being changed (to 16 characters) as soon as I'm not looking, so it seems my password is not the default.,

Make sense? Hope so to someone....

Cheers
Monty

Make sure that you have entered the correct server names in POP3 and SMTP, these are available from the webpage of your ISP in most cases.

The password "dots" will never match the number of characters in the password you enter, its a security precaution of Windows XP. It's normal.
