My e-mail provider is talktalk.net which is all set up on my pc, I just click on Outlook Express & up it comes. But I can't seem to get into them from my laptop - tried www.talktalk.net but this just gives me talktalk main site, no apparent way to get e-mails. Have tried www.outlookexpress but no joy. The laptop has an email icon which I've tried clicking on - this directs me to talktalk but my username & password aren't accepted. I'm being dim I know, but any ideas how to access email from the laptop?
On your laptop, you may need to set up MS Outlook Express with the mail server and login details (which are already in your main PC).
I know some services let you download a configuration file (which is perhaps what AK is pointing to) that puts the essentials into Outlook Express - eg the POP mail server name and SMTP mail server name - you'd see these if you go rooting around on the PC in Outlook Express (perhaps under Tools menu, Accounts - sorry am a bit rusty as years since I've used OE regularly, get my mail sent to web-based services).
