Hi there

Have tried to configure mail but can only get it to send emails and not receive - my ISP are being about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike so hoping someone here might be able to help.

the settings I have used are as follows:

"my set up is thus:

email address: mail@myname.adsl24.co.uk
username: mail@myname.adsl24.co.uk

mail servers for in and out mail.myname.adsl24.co.uk

ssl off for both

have tried Ports 25, 26 and 110"


any help would be appreciated. thanks in advance

To receive mail via pop3 you must use port 110, to send mail use Port 25.
Try changing the mail server name to mail.adsl24.co.uk (leave out myname).

The extra "myname" in the mail servers was probably causing the problem...also, make sure you use your actual "name," too ;D .
Hope you got it straightened out.

hmmm but that is the settings I have from adsl24 and indeed are the settings I used on my windows box and it worked fine (shrugs) also when setting this up on the mac it only seems to set the port for one ...can't remember whether it was in or out tbh ? any further ideas guys ?
