Outlook Express set-up

Message 1 of 4

I am trying to get Outlook Express on my new Computer.  It will send mail but will not receive.  I have incoming.verizon.net fot the incoming and outgoing.verizon.net for the outgoing.  Everything is set like the old computer but I must be missing something.

Any ideas?

Correct user name and password?

And all of the other settings "match"?

You can check the outgoing mail settings in Outlook express by going to



Then Select the Mail tab

Click on your email account (usually listed as incoming.verizon..)  

Then click the properties button on the right. 

Click on the Servers tab

All the way at the bottom is a section for Outgoing Mail Server:

Click the box that says My server requires authentication

Then click ok.

Try resending.. ya should be all set then
