I have been to 20 different sites to find a fix for this prob & have tried EVERYTHING suggested. I have an email acct with Qwest which uses an @q.com suffix. I am so tired of how slow the MSN mail runs that I want to switch back to my Outlook Express, however everytime I try to set up the acct I get the same error message:
The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'Qwest Mail', Server: 'pop3.live.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 587, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E
I have set the SMTP port to both 25 & 587...made sure I was using SSL...nothin works. I went to Qwest's online help, downloaded 9 pages of instruction & set it up EXACTLY as they stated & it still will not work. Someone suggested that I set it up as an HTTP email acct, but that didn't work either. My Charter email works just fine. I have spent 2 days trying to set this up & am at my wits end! Qwest says they do not support OE so will not offer anything but their online instructions.
Any ideas? I soooo appreciate any help you can offer!
