not necessarily  - you may have to put something else  in the incoming mail address box

 

are you sending OK?

 

I'd talk to the IT dept or some other students that HAVE got service

no it wont work at all, i wanted it set up so i could send and recieve messages via hotmail instead of having to use the internet all the time.

But how will you get hotmail other than by the internet?

 

Go to tools in OE and make a note of the account settings and post them on here - we might be able to help

 

i meant using an internet browser.

 

here are my settings:

 

in the connections tab of OE, it says it shares my internet explorer settings which are:

 

proxy.resnet.uce.ac.uk    port: 80

 

when i try to recieve mail from a client this is the error message i get:

 

The connection to the server has failed. Account: '[email protected]', Server: 'pop.gmail.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10051, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

well I think your server address pop.gmail.com has to be in the Incoming Mail box slot in OE otherwise how the hell will it know where to go to look for your email?

 

I'd try and talk to the guys in the University Computer centre TBH
