Windows 7: SMTP AND POP3 Information while Configuring Outlook

25 Nov 2011   #11

7 ultimate
problem configuring POP3 for Outlook on

Hi, this looks very useful - but do you, or does anyone, know about the ROW ?

Based in France, | have set up Outlook on several machines (tho' personally I use Thunderbird, which now installs and configures like a dream).

This time, setting up Outlook in the diabolical Office 2010, I have set up one account as IMAP on (the largest supplier in France, part of France Telecom); but when I came to set up a second a/c as POP, Outlook refused to find the server - even though we have other Outlooks using POP on
(I tried both POP and POP3, though the former is the one Orange recommend)

(Machine is a new Sony Vaio with 17-640M @ 2.8GHz, 4Gb 1066MHz DRAM, 192Gb SSD ultra-SATA, runninig Windows 7 Ultimate installed by manufacturer, as was Office 2010)

Grateful for any help - thanks, Andrew
