I have just resolved this issue for myself. The information PeoplePC provides is all correct; just deficient:
Incoming mail server = pop.peoplepc.com
Outgoing mail server = smtpauth.peoplepc.com
Incoming Mail Server Username = MailBoxUsername (For Bill@PeoplePC.com
) this would be Bill.
Incoming Mail Server Username = Bill's Password
Outgoing mail server requires authentication = CHECKED
Log on using Secure Password Authentication = UNCHECKED
Outgoing Mail Server Username = IspAccountPrimaryE-Mail ( PrimaryIspEmailName@PeoplePC.com
USE THE ENTIRE E-MAIL ADDRESS)
Outgoing Mail Server Password = PrimaryUserPassword (If this account is for a secondary e-mail user account then be sure to check Remember Password) Log on using Secure Password Authentication is unchecked.
In Advanced Settings:
Outgoing mail(SMTP): 587
Incoming mail(POP3): 110
Server requires a secure connection (SSL): UNCHECKED
Though the use the the "Standard Username/Password" will work while you are on a PeoplePC DialUp connection; it will NOT work from any other ISP connections unless the Outgoing Server SMTP Username/Password follows the above perscription.
BTW: If you do not wish to use the "People PC Smart Dialer" and all of the garbage that comes with it, you may simply configure the normal MS Windows Dialer Using the Full Primary Account E-Mail Address as the username and the Primary Password for any PeoplePC DialUp Number in the USA. I hated that “PeoplePC Smart Dialer” so using the primary e-mail address username and password in the Microsoft dialer is what led me to guess the correct answer to this issue. I then uninstalled People PC altogether; just used them like any other normal dialup ISP.
