Keith,


I think were on to something here thanks to your line of questions.

While it had nothing to do with my previous problem that Wannabe1 helped out with, here's "our" deal.


I just moved and while my old ISP was Verizon, i'm now with Earthlink. I never reconfigured anything...such a dope.

If you could walk me through that ( i do know all my earthlink info) i think we'll be cool.

If you open Outlook, click tools, e-mail accounts then add an account it should run through the set up so you can enter the earthlink details

When i do that all is well until i get to the screen called " E'mail Server Name".

This is the same screen with two blank boxes titles: INCOMING (POP3) and OUTGOING (SMTP)



I'm not sure how to proceed here......

This is brutal.


I do NOT get those screens. I'm not given an option on E'MAIL accounts, but simply something called ACCOUNTS.


The term "e'mail" does'nt show up anywhere. I know this should be simple....

Correct Keith,


Microsoft Outlook....


I've looked and looked (not just under Tools) for something about E'mail account and not just accounts.

Nothin. Clearly i'm doing something wrong....

So when you click tools you get a short menu with an arrow at the bottom, hold the cursor over the menu / arrow for a few seconds, all will be revealed, I hope

When i click on Tools, then let the arrow extend the field, THIS is where i get the following three option:



1) Accounts (notice it does'nt say e'mail accounts)

2) Customize

3) Options


When i click "Accounts" it goes to a window that says: " account = POP3, Type = mail default, and Connection = local area network.

There's nothing about "changing" an account.
