    Hi,

    Ive been trying to access a tiscali email account via my orange PAYG GPRS
    account for some time, and wonder if anyone in this group could help me
    clear this one up and get it working....

    Every time I try connecting to the account it says wrong password or
    mailbox. I know the password is correct, so that just leaves the 'mailbox'
    in question.... problem is I have no idea what it needs in the 'mailbox'
    entry box. Can anyone help me to get my email working please?

    I have the following options already set up:

    Connect using: Orange WAP GPRS
    Protocol: POP3
    Incoming server: pop.tiscali.co.uk
    Incoming Port:110
    Mailbox: ?????????? (No idea what needs to be here)
    Password: **********
    Outgoing server: smtp.tiscali.co.uk
    Outgoing port: 25
    Email address: [email protected]
    Download: Headers and Text
    From Name: empty (no entry)
    Signature: No signature
    Copy outgoing: Off
    Check Interval: Off

    Am I doing something wrong, or is it Tiscali who are not allowing me to
    access my pop3 email account externally from orange?

    When I try connecting to the account it just says Mailbox or Password wrong.

    Thanks very much.

    Mike

    Your Tiscali user name.

    What would that be then? The first part of my main tiscali email address?
    Or are we talking something else?
    I wondered if the reason I couldn't access the account was because I was
    trying to log in with another provider. Having said that, Orange list
    tiscali as an option for accessing email via GPRS....

    The same user name as your normal mail client uses to log in to the
    mailbox.

    > The first part of my main tiscali email address?


    Worth a try. Or the complete email address. I don't know. I don't have a
    Tiscali account. But they're as good a start as any. Or look in the
    settings for your normal mail client.

    Without a user name, you won't manage to log in even if Tiscali DO allow it
    (which I'm fairly certain they do)

    You should also change the outgoing server to...
    smtp.orange.net

    Should be PAYG GRP Internet

    Use smtp.orange.net
