no password no email !

also need pop and smtp settings, and port settings

if you dont have all of these, and esp the password, you are out of luck

sign up for a new gmail account, it also works online, so nothing to set up on your computer, access from anywhere with internet, and cant lose emails
messing with outlook, losing emails, is an old idea now, things are better with gmail

Can you send them, if not sounds like you haven't set it all up


No cannot send them either.

Use the red boxes on the street corners till you get it sorted!

How do you sign up for a gmail account?Only reason I wanted the old account is that someone sent some pictures of my dad when he was younger with his parents and he died 2 years ago.:cry:

signing up to gmail is the easy part

https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLogin?service=mail&passive=true&rm=false&continue=https%3A%2F%2Fmail.google.com%2Fmail%2F%3Fui%3Dhtml%26zy%3Dl&bsv=zpwhtygjntrz&ss=1&scc=1<mpl=default<mplcache=2

and make a free account

getting the pictures back, I wish there was a way, can you contact who sent them via another way? or still have their email address?
hope so. getting a gmail address will prevent you losing stuff in future, as its not dependant on your pc

im close to crying with you!,

Thanks Jubbyme,it was my dads cousin who sent them,I had his email address and phone number but that will now be lost as well.I will see if my mum has his number but I very much doubt it.My sister still may have the email as I sent it to all my brothers and sisters.Thanks for all your help.

Why not take the HDD out of your old pc and see if you cant install that as a slave onto your replacement PC and try and access your inbox folder and retrieve your important data?

Virgin can do a couple of things to help

first, they use googlemail as the backup system, so stuff should still exist online
they use a custom page but use google behind it

and they can help with resetting the password, give them a ring!
