Receiving Mypostoffice emails through Outlook
by Bob_Russell - 6/7/13 7:03 AM
I'm having trouble setting up Outlook to receive emails addressed to my "mypostoffice.co.uk address. It was suggested that I follow the instructions at [http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/outlook/other-email-accounts] for - 'Add a Yahoo! Mail Plus or other POP account to Outlook.com', after entering the email account and password I clicked next, I received the following message:- "Sorry, we couldn't find the right settings for your account. Please review the information below and try again".
The incoming server address was shown as pop.mypostoffice.co.uk - port 995 and the outgoing server address was smtp.mypostoffice.co.uk - port 465, I spoke to mypostoffice helpline and was advised that the incoming server address should be pop3.mypostoffice.co.uk port 25 and the incoming server address smtp.mypostoffice.co.uk port 25. I made the appropriate changes except the incoming port which only gave a choice of 995 or 110 so I tried entering first 995 and then 110 each time receiving the message "There's a problem connecting to the pop3 mail server".
Can anybody suggest how I should proceed to solve this problem.
