      Outlook 2003

      Hi All

      I hope that someone is able to help me (please). I recently changed from Talktalk to Sky. Since the change I have not been able to use Outlook 2003 to send and receive mails.

      After unsuccesfully trying to set up Outlook using the online instructions I contacted Sky by phone. Despite many long telephone calls and going through the set up with many of their representatives many times I have just been told that they can not help and that I should contact Microsoft direct.

      After finding this very helpful site and ready many threads and posts I have now managed to set up two secondary mail addresses to receive mails through Outlook. Unfortunately I can not send mails through outlook still. I have checked my settings many times and read many posts for help.

      When I go into test settings I get many ticks right up until:- "Send test e-mail message: unable to send test message. Please verify the E-Mail address field."

      I am really frustrated with this now and I would really appreciate any help anyone can give.

      Thanks in advance.

      Dan

      Login to Sky Webmail, click on Mail Settings, and make sure POP3 access is enabled.
      Configure OL as per attached screenshots.

      Re: Outlook 2003

      Hi All

      Thanks for the two responses. I have double checked and all my Microsoft Updates are fully up to date. I have Windows XP Professional Version 2002 with service pack 3.

      I have already enabled pop 3 on both the primary and secondary addresses. I have followed the configuration screenshots several times and have double checked several times.

      Can anyone help please?

      Thanks in advance.

      Dan

      Re: Outlook 2003

      Same issue being experienced, have sky changed anything in terms of the config of POP??

      Constantly getting asked for username and password when trying to use outlook 2007 to download emails. Previously worked fine, POP enabled in settings in the Webmail account.

      Anyone know anything??
