      windows mail outgoing mail probs

      hello there everyone. i'm having problems sending mail with windows mail. i've trawled all the posts with similiar probs and seem to have set up my skyusermail smtp properly but still cannot send mails.

      outgoingmail is mail.skyusermail.com
      i've ticked outgoing server requires authentication then filled in skyuser name(rob_cross) and password (same as to log onto skyuser site) i think i'm right not to tick the log on using secure password authentication.

      windows security then keeps asking for my pop account login details which it won't accept as correct.

      i have 2 mail accounts set up with windows mail tiscali and sky but neither will send mails. it's driving me ever so slightly mad now so any help greatly appreciated thanks

      At the risk of stating the obvious - you are only able to use the skyuser smtp for outgoing messages and your pop details are from your sky/tiscali accounts. If that is what you are doing then I'm sorry!

      Also maybe a bit obvious, but have you set up a user account for Skyuser SMTP? I ask as you mention you are using your forum login for your email. I think you are specifically asked not to do that when you are setting up an account. The password should be unique to your account. Have you read here -

      Re: windows mail outgoing mail probs

      yeh all registered for skyuser smtp but could well be using wrong password then. it was a while after setting up before i tried configuring windowsmail and as usual have forgotten if password was different from site login password. any idea where i can confirm passwords?
      cheers for your help anyway
