Techy Help: Windows Mail & TalkTalk Account Settings

Found 8th Jan 2009
Trying to set up talktalk email using Windows email but having no luck? anyone else successfully managed this?

Followed the setting as below, but it keeps asking username and password, which are 100% correct.

E-mail address: [email protected]talktalk.net
Incoming mail Sever: mail.talktalk.net (if asked:)
Incoming mail account type: POP3
Incoming mail port: 110
Outgoing mail (SMTP) Server: smtp.talktalk.net (if asked:)
Log on using SPA: leave unchecked
Authentication: none
Outgoing mail port: 25
Use SSL: leave unchecked

Account name (Username): [email protected]talktalk.net
Password: password

I do use Windows Mail (under Vista) for my talktalk account with no problems

Just a quick thought remember that the username to connect to internet ([email protected]) is different that the one for your email ([email protected]). I wonder whether you need to use the other one instead.

I'll have a look tonight at home and let you know what values I have.

its a LIVE.co.uk email acct part of hotmail now?

I've got the same settings, only thing that I noticed was that I have a capital T in TalkTalk but don't think this will be the problem.

one other thing in the Security tab, I have the Algorithm set to 3DES in case this help.

But by the looks of things you seems to have all the correct settings.

Let me know if you need any other information.
