Hi,
I am quite new to mac and have a macbook running Leopard. I also have a PC desktop running windows xp. My macbook is networked wirelessly through a Netgear wireless router. I have Outlook Express for my windows mail and want to set up mac mail with the same settings as OE.

Everything goes fine until I try to send and receive, then I get a message saying that it can't do that as I haven't set my details correctly. It is either the wrong port or the server settings are wrong.

Any ideas on this will be much appreciated.
QUOTE Thanks

Thank you for your reply. Well, I am in New Zealand and my account is with World Exchange Communications. I may have to phone them I guess. But I thought maybe It would work if i tried to set it up myself.
