Hi guys, I have just swapped ISP from my old freeserve (wanadoo,orange) broadband to sky. The problem is I want to still be able to access my old email a/c I have had for years. I used to use outlook express and wanted to still be able to use this program, however since changing ISP I still receive emails but cannot send any as I get the error,

The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'pop.wanadoo.co.uk', Server: 'smtp.wanadoo.co.uk', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

Can anyone help?

I found this, even though it states for Earthlink just follow the instructions and input the info for Sky.


Error: The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'youraccount', Server: 'www.yourdomain.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E
You are on a an ISP (such as Earthlink or Mindspring) that blocks their users using any SMTP server other than their own. Your solution is as follows:
# To set up Earthlink, Mindspring, or your ISP's SMTP servers for your outgoing email you must click on your account settings in the email client you are using (Outlook Express, Eudora, Netscape etc.)
# In the SMTP (outgoing mail server) field you will enter smtp.earthlink.net (or whatever your dial up or direct access ISP's SMTP server is) as your SMTP server. You must then enter your Earthlink (or your ISP's) username and password for that mail server.
# In Outlook Express it is at the bottom of that same tab. You must uncheck 'My server requires authentication' and click on 'settings' to enter your Earthlink (or your ISP's) username and password.

Your email will still be from your own domain name, the only difference is in the way it is routed throughout the Internet. Instead of being sent through our servers it is processed through Earthlink (or your ISP's) servers. This allows Earthlink (or your ISP) to monitor its users.

My colleague is having the same problem in that his outlook express email was on a dialup pay as you go and now he is connected via sky broad band. He has no problem with sending any email's from the sky address and he is okay at receiving all his freeserve emails. the problem comes when he wants to send an email from his freeserve email address.
Have you managed to under stand what is needed to be done to his freeserve account details within outlook express. Like yourself I can't understand what specific parts need to be changed. He is using XP home as the operating system.

In the Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) try entering smtp.freeserve.co.uk or smtp.freeserve.net as your SMTP server. You must then enter your username and password for that mail server.

I have two account profiles in outlook express, one for the sky broadband and the other for the freeserve. Which of these do I have to alter the outgoing mail server details because in the freeserve one it has already got smtp.freeserve.co.uk sorry to be a pain
