Email set up problem?


#1

I am still having problems with setting up email accounts. Sometimes they work for me but other times it doesn’t.

Anyway, here is what I just done.

  1. I set up a mailbox for a domain
  2. I added an address for that mailbox

I then set up my Outlook Express like this:

Incoming mail server: mail.domainname.com
Incoming mail server type: POP3
Incoming mail server username: used the code that was created when setting up the mailbox (mxxxxxxxx)
Outgoing (SMTP) mail server: mail.domainname.com
My server requires authentication: checked. (use same settings as
incoming mail server)

But each time I check my email, it keeps asking for the username and password again.

Am I suppossed to set up a USER before setting up the mailbox?

Mailboxes do take some time to create. The FAQ pages list 15 minutes as the server settings get reloaded every 15 minutes, presumably, but I’ve noticed it can take a bit longer than this. Did you wait for, say 30 minutes after you setup your accounts?
