Can anyone help me??

Have recovered my pc today and lost my email account. It was set up in outlook express (though I have telewest broadband and a blueyonder address) and as I'm trying to set up or recover it it's asking me for incoming mail server and an outgoing mail server.

I can't remember what I need to put in these boxes but I'm sure the last time I did it I didn't have to contact my ISP which would be Telewest, right?

Thanks for your patience in reading this. If you could help it'd be much apreciated!

We have the same set up and as far as I remember when we temporarily lost our connection we just called Telewest for our ID number.

Think so Aimsmum. Would that be pop.blueyonder.com then? For both of them?

Aero, won't we get charged for that?

Incoming
pop.blueyonder.com

Outgoing
mail.blueyonder.com

incoming mail - pop3.blueyonder.co.uk
outgoing mail - smtp.blueyonder.co.uk

takes the kiss before MT reads Hunkers post

Crap! I put the wrong one in and now I can't create a new account.

I'll just run the recovery discs again. What the hell!

monkeytrousers Mon 18-Jul-05 19:22:43

Hunker, I'll give you a kiss too and hope it doesn't attract sweaty breathers to the thread!

Is there no ´edit´ function or option to change server settings?

monkeytrousers Mon 18-Jul-05 19:28:16

Now I can't even open OE up! Bloomin' ek!

its Big Brother - you better have a twitch of the curtains to see if they are outside in a van or up a power pole

Sorry - got called away. Don't think we were charged. Costs nothing to call them and query though. 150 from your phone.

hope the outlook is ok this morning?

I feel abit responsible! sensitive soul i am

No, still not on. Can't find an edit function. It's not your fault though, I was being 'creative'

Going to run the recovery disks again. Everything's gone already so I might as well!
