Hi Guys
I used this service a while ago and it was very helpful hoping you can help once more

When I go to outlook express I get the following error message

The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'POP3', Server: 'pop.broadband.rogers.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E


more info I found here on this error message
0x800CCC0E solution FAILED_TO_CONNECT Cannot connect to server

Can you help with this

Any assistance appreciated

Hi,

You need to change your account settings and set the server settings according to this link it seems they changed the access to SSL that is good because it's a more secure way to access your mail.

You can find the full server settings on this page but without instructions for specific e-mail clients...

To backup Outlook Express manually you will need to do several steps found here another option is to use a free tool like Geni9 Outlook Express Backup.
By the way the manual backup instructions above from Microsoft doesn't include the backup of the mail filter rules, they are stored on the Registry and aren't simple to restore after a re-installation of windows for example...

Better yet ditch Outlook Express and start using Mozilla Thunderbird Portable. Thunderbird can import everything from Outlook Express and the portable version is self contained you only need to copy the folder where it resides to backup everything on it. The portable version can be run in any other computer from a flash drive or from a external hard disk.

Thanks I downloaded Mozilla thunderbird and saved it to my desktop
I guess when I want to back up everthing use this program to do it
In the meantime continue using outlook express
Does this pick up all files if I have outlook express ?

I don't really understand how to use Mozilla Thunderbird as a replacement going forward do you have instructions on how to proceed if I wanted to use Mozilla

Thanks

Hi,

Mozilla Thunderbird is an e-mail client it can do all the things Outlook Express do, but is a more secure and updated program.

If you want to ditch Outlook Express you need to install Mozilla Thunderbird Portable by running the ThunderbirdPortable_24.3.0_English.paf.exe it will ask where you want to extract the program, create a folder like D:\PortableApps\ or create it in C:\PortableApps\ and point the installer to that folder, a new one will be created for Thunderbird.

If I'm not mistaken a shortcut is also created on the Desktop to start the program, run Mozilla Thunderbird making sure Outlook Express is closed.
At first start it will ask if you want to import everything from Outlook Express, choose what you want to import (probably everything) and after that Thunderbird should have all your e-mail and your account set you only need to check for new e-mails and enter your password.
