      Outlook Express setup on Windows on a Mac

      Hi

      Attempting to set up Outlook Express in Windows (XP Professional ver 5.1) running through Parallels (build 1970) on a Mac (ver 10.4.11).

      The incoming mail is successful but the out going mail wont go.

      Have tried numerous settings seen on help page without success.

      Generally receive the password box on screen click OK and it reappears shortly afterwards (over and over this occurs)

      Used settings for Mail on Mac (smtp.tools.sky.com:email addresss @sky.com which it doesn't recognise. Left out the email address which it does recognise but wont send messages.

      Any help

      M

      Did you remember to use the SSL port (465) for outgoing mail?
      Detailed instructions for googlemail are here: Outlook Express - Help Center

      Just replace the googlemail servernames with the Sky ones.

      Question - Why would you want to useOutlook Express in favour of the excellent OSX Mac Mail?

      Thanks for the reply

      Error messsages received

      An unknown error has occurred. Subject 'Help!', Account: 'pop.lineone.net', Server: 'smtp.tools.sky.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 465, Secure(SSL): Yes, Error Number: 0x800CCC0B

      The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'pop.lineone.net', Server: 'pop.lineone.net', Protocol: POP3, Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

      Reason for this is when emailing documents from Coral Draw that runs in windows it always uses Outlook Express to try to email them. But I cannot get it to work,

      Your user name for email using software tools like this is always your full email address. If you get repeated requests for password and user name popping up you can try
      www.sky.com/unlock and see if that helps.
