Problem with my incoming mail server

My incoming mail server keeps changing. When I go into my Accounts page and
click on my default account and then click on severs, my incoming mail (POP3)
should read mail.talktalk.net. However it is always changed to the numbers
127.0.0.1. No matter how many times I try to change it, when I switch my PC
off and then on again, it always reverts back to the above numbers. Please
can anybody help with any advice

Greetings all,

I have a slight problem with my front end server. When a user sends a mail with 6 MB attachment (3 of em) they never reach the host. When I track the message on the front end server with the message tracking tool and I dobbelt click the mail to see where it has been sendt to i get this msg:

The object'************************'in the message tracking logs can't be found in the directory. The object may have been deleted. The tracking history may be incorrect.

I have no filters on except that people can't send files over 10 MB. When I send the same mail it do arrive(havn't tried the same detination adress though) and there is no error i the msg tracking. Any one who has an idee what it can be and why the mail dont reach the host?

The setup is:
2 Back end servers -- 1 smtp with anti virus server -- 1 front end server with spam filter.
all servers are running windows 2000 SP4 with exchange 2000 on. No SP has been applied to the exchange 2000.

In advance thx for any help to solve this problem
Yours Sincerely,
Benjamin

I can't send or receive and when I try to do a test message in my Outlook XP,
it tells me I can't log into my incoming mail server. I have changed
passwords, set up a new account, I can receive it on webmail but not in my
Outlook. My boss is not having this problem. I have not changed anything in
the settings, it just suddenly happened.

I have a problem with my exchange 2003 server ... Help - Log files not flushing after Full backup ...

I posted this in XP General but thought I would try here too. For the past
two days when I try to open attachemts they open Clip Art Organizer instead
of opening in the normal way. Can anyone advise me how I can change back to
have them open in the standard way. I don't know what caused the change, I
had been having problems with my incoming mail server info changing but put
that down to a problem with McAfee spam blocker and it seems fine now.

Thanks


Hi, My Office Outlook 2007 email setup had been working fine until last Wednesday when my ISP, Charter Internet, made changes to their own email format. Now I am unable to receive any of my incoming mail into Outlook from my three Charter email accounts. I am getting the following message; "Receiving reported error (0x80042108) Outlook cannot connect to your incoming (POP3) email server."

I have called the ISP. They said they attempted to provide their newest customers with their new email setup but had a few problems and took all customers back to the previous version of the email.  They said it should not have caused any of my Outlook problems but I think it has. I have had my email set up in Outlook for some time now and this is the first time with sending and receiving errors.

I have the account settings in Outlook set as the ISP agrees it should be, so am I missing something on my end or is this really an issue for the ISP to work out?

hi everyone
i have a big problem with well know mail servers link yahoo and gmail that is
the mails that goes from my mail server to these servers are known as a spam.
please guide me to fix this problem .

I have an email acount with my employer, which I use without a problem
running Outlook 2003 with Windows XP SP2 and IE7, as a POP3/SMTP account. My
employer uses a certificate for the server, which is the same for the
intranet site.
Now on my new notebook I want to run Windows Vista with Office 2007 (i.e.
Outlook 2007). I have the certificate installed, and can go to the intranet
set without problems. I enter exactly the same email acount settings as
before, which include:
- 'My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication' / 'Use same settings
as my incoming mail server'
- 'Server Port Numbers' specified for both incoming server (POP3) and
outgoing server (SMTP).
- SSL encrypted connection for both incoming and outgoing server

But when I test the account with Outlook 2007 it gives the following messages:
"Log onto incoming mail server (POP3): Your server does not support the
connection encryption type you have specified. Try changing the encryption
method. Contact your mail server administrator or Internet service provider
(ISP) for additional assistance."
and
"Send test e-mail message: Your server does not support the connection
encryption type you have specified. Try changing the encryption method.
Contact your mail server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP) for
additional assistance."

If I run Outlook 2007 with logging enabled it shows the following:
2007.07.20 15:36:10 xxx@xxx.com: UploadItems: 0 messages to send
2007.07.20 15:36:10 xxx@xxx.com: Synch operation completed

2007.07.20 15:36:10 xxx@xxx.com: Synch operation completed

I also tried using the Vista Windows Mail, and it gives me the following
error:
"Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for
this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of
inactivity. Account: 'xxx', Server: 'aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd', Protocol: POP3, Port:
995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F

The strange thing is that I can get it to work with the mail-monitor gadget
that is part of True Launch Bar (http://www.truelaunchbar.com/), still
running Windows Vista.

I have tried changing some advanced IE7 settings regarding encryption, tried
enabling disabling Windows Firewall etc. but nothing helps.

(I have changed the email-address and ip-address, for privacy reasons).

Hope someone can help me.
Kind regards

I need some assistance as I am unable to get incoming mail.

Can you help me get incoming mail to work - perhaps I have configured

are, I am on Time Warner for my ISP and they said that they aren't able to
help with Outlook, can anyone help me please?

I can send emails using Outlook but cannot receive any emails. All my emails
go to my internet provider site instead of Outlook.
I set up my email account information Using E-mail account feature in
Outlook but when I click on "Test Account Settings" I get an error message,
"Unable to Log on to the incoming mail server POP3" Besides that, my
internet Sign-in box with User name and Password sign in box keeps popping up
every five minutes and nothing happens when I click to log on. I can't
figure out why my incoming messages are not being delivered to my inbox in
Outlook. Thanks

I have lost my abillity to connect to email via outlook, and o.l.express It
seemed to start after i installed Norton I.S. 2008. i can still send and
receive from my blackberry. i can go onto my Tiscali mail and pickup mail.
Vodafone/blackberry say its Tiscali prob, Tiscali say it's working fine coz
it goes as far as thier mail box.
I've completely reinstalled office 03
I've completely reset outlook email accounts, by myself, and with Tiscali
help.
I've completely switched off Norton (no firewall block)
I've done system restore right back to original setup.
Every time I "test account settings", I get.. Log onto incoming mail server
(pop3)..Failed, but all other boxes are ticked.
I'm running XP 2002 with SP3
Can anyone help please?????

I've been using comast's email program for 2+ years and now want to migrate
to Outlook 2003 to send/receive and manage messages. The MS-Outlook program
appears to be correctly established and I've checked the Tools: email setup a
number of times. When "testing" the settings, 5 of the 6 tests are
successful. Test #5: Receiving Messages, always comes back with an error
message: "Log onto incoming mail server (pop3): Outlook could not connect to
the incoming POP3 mail server becuase your mailbox on the server was in use".
Is this error message caused by a configuration in Outlook or is the problem
related to Comcast's mail server? How to I fix this problem to receive
emails on Outlook?

I have a new Dell, P4,xp pro, McAfee, Dell support, Google desktop etc.

A few OE settings for my e-mail acct get reset everytime I reboot--does not
happen if I correct the settings, close OE, and then reopen OE. My e-mail
will receive messages, but not send when the changes occur.

1. The fields changed are my POP3 incoming from "mail.i29.net" to the
number"127.0.0.1"
2. The incoming mail server account name gets changed to an incorrect form
of my user name.
2. After receiving my e-mail, the outgoing mail server settings get changed
from the "use the same settings as my incoming mail server" to the "log on
using" selection which then uses the same incorrect form of my e-mail
address.

3. Conversation with my ISP tech support thought it might be a McAfee
problem, but offered no potential help.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. (I listed the "Dell Support" above to
bring a smile)

I have Verizon DSL and their Yahoo web based e-mail. The past few days I have
been unable to download mail into OE. I seem to have been having these
problems after a recent MS Update...but I won't get into that. Anyway, I have
discovered that when I change the Incoming Mail server to
"incoming.yahoo.verizon.net", it works okay. But after shutting down and
turning the PC back on, it reverts to "127.0.0",
which for some reason doesn't let me download my e-mails. Is there any way
to stop it from changing my mail server upon shutdown/restart.

Every time I shut down Windows XP and restart, Outlook Express for some
reason changes the IP address of the incoming mail server (POP3) to a dummy
address. I have to go in manually each time and change the incoming mail
server (POP3) address to the correct address for my 6 e-mail accounts with
two different internet service providers. These settings will remain no
matter how many times I open and close Outlook Express until the next time I
turn the computer off. When I restart, the bogus IP address for the
incoming mail servers (POP3) are back. It is the same bogus IP address for
both internet service providers.

Does anyone have any advice for how I can get the true IP addresses for the
incoming mail servers (POP3) to stick when I change them? The way I have
been doing it is to go into Tools-Accounts-Properties. Thanks.

For the last few days, each time I re-boot my pc the incoming mail server
changes to 127.0.01 instead of the correct one. I have tried system restore,
checked windows updates, deleted my e-mail account and added it in again, all
to no avail. Has anyone else had this problem? If so please let me know if
you were able to cure it.

I have set up a new account in Outlook using my new email address registered
with service provider. I do not seem to be sending or receiving emails and
when tested in the set up, get this message "Unable to logon to the incoming
mail server (POP3)". I have never done this before but have checked the
required information and all seems to be correct. Can anyone help?

I have previously used Outlook 2003 on XP machine to access my Windows Live email (set up using Outlook Connector) without problems. Have a new machine (Windows 7 and Outlook 2007) and can?t get it to work. I get error ?An encrypted connection to your mail server is not available?. Looking at various forums, it looked like this used to be a common problem before Outlook Connector but I can?t see anything about the problem when using it.

I tried setting things up the hard way
Incoming mail server (POP3): pop3.live.com.
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.live.com .
My Server Requires Authentication: selected
Use Same Settings as My Incoming Mail Server: selected.
This server requires a secure connection: selected
Use the following type of encrypted connection: SSL
Incoming mail port: 995
Outgoing mail port 25

Test setting gives error ?Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) email server error 0x8004210B?

I?ve found old articles on this error but all the problems were supposedly fixed years ago.

If I save the setting anyway, incoming email works OK but I can?t send any email

I read somewhere that outgoing mail port 587 may work, but I get error ?your server does not support the connection type you specified? when I tried this

Anyone have any ideas

thanks

thanks

Hello,
I have a strange problem with my Exchange 2000 server (Service Pack 2). It is installed in one domain (called DomainA), but I have configured the Default Recipient Policy to create 2 SMTP e-mail addresses for each mailbox; namely, xxx@domainA.com and xxx@domainB.com. When I modified the Default Recipient Policy to include a second SMTP e-mail address for @domainB.com, I did NOT enable the "This organization is responsible for all message delivery to this SMTP domain" checkbox because I do NOT want the Exchange server to receive/deliver(locally) any mail addressed to xxx@domainB.com. I have set the primary SMTP e-mail address to be @domainB.com instead of the @domainA.com domain that the server is a member of. I did this because I want users with a mailbox on the Exchange server to have a xxx@domainB.com as their primary e-mail address so that this address will appear when recipients of these users' e-mails click Reply To.

I do NOT have any MX records pointing to my Exchange server for the @domainB.com SMTP domain. The problem is the Exchange server will still attempt to deliver all mail addressed to xxx@domainB.com when I don't want it to. Because of this, when a user (user1) with a mailbox on the Exchange server sends mail to user2@domainB.com who also has a mailbox on the Exchange server, the message is delivered just fine (even though the Exchange server is not supposed to deliver any mail addressed to @domainB.com). When a user with a mailbox on the Exchange server sends mail addressed to user3@domainB.com who does NOT have a mailbox on the Exchange server, the message is NOT delivered and I get a message from the System Administrator stating that "the e-mail account does not exist at the organization this message was sent to".

This tells me that my Exchange server is attempting to deliver (locally) to user3's mailbox, but user3 does not have a mailbox on the Exchange server. User3's mailbox is on a SendMail server in a different state. This SendMail server is the server that should be receiving ALL mail addressed to xxx@domainB.com. The MX record that I have is pointing to this SendMail server for the @domainB.com SMTP domain.

My question is simply how can I make the Exchange server stop trying to locally deliver all messages addressed to @domainB.com and use DNS to forward these messages to the SendMail server where all users with @domainB.com e-mail address will pick up their mail using a POP3 client.

Thank you in advance for any help or input from the community.
