Hi! I am new at this forum and do not know where to post questions. That's why I am placing it here.
How come I can use my local server for emails but the Sygate Personal firewall blocks my Outlook Express? How do I set up for incoming and outgoing mail? Firewall allows me to use my browser but not Outlook Express, I can neither send or receive my email messages. The following are the exact two error messages I get whenever I try to connect and get emails. I am copying them so that you may have a better idea as to how to help me.
The host smtp.frontiernet.net could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server route correctly. Account 'pop3 .frontiernet.net. Protocol SMTP,Port25, Secure(SSL);No Socket Error.11004.error number.
The host 'Pop3.frontiernet.net could no be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'Pop3.frontiernet.net, Server, 'Pop3.frontiernet.net, Protocol Pop3,Port:110,Secure (SSL). No Socket Error.11004,Error number.
One last thing, I understand that the email has to be sent to pop3.frontiernet.net and not any other server, when I click on Outlook Express under Tools, send and receive, it claims that pop3.frontiernet.net is default so how come it does not work? I greatly appreciate your help. Thanks Anna Marie
