Hi. i have uploaded a web site i have created with streamline.net. they host web sites basically. i am running a small recruitment business from it and want to set up emails via outlook express. I have entered all the information they have given me but it is failing. This is the failiure message.
"The host 'mail.mikequarterman-recruitment.co.uk' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'mail.mikequarterman-recruitment.co.uk', Server: 'mail.mikequarterman-recruitment.co.uk', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11004, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D"
I am sure that it will be easily rectified but i am not IT technically minded and are looking for help.
Basically, this error is saying that your Outlook is unable to find the mail server. Make sure that you typed in your POP3/SMTP server/hostname properly. Then make sure that your username/password are entered properly. Also, if you have a firewall on your computer/network, make sure ports 110 and 25 are open. In some cases, your ISP may also be blocking ports, although they usually block port 25.
