    I set up a new email last night with my ISP, and I have it set up in Outlook fine, and when I test the account settings, it works fine.

    However, I can only send mail, and I cannot receive any mail in Outlook.

    Any ideas?

    How did you test everything out okay but can't receive any mail? That's not a very good test. More often than not, your problem is incorrect account settings, but you could always try telnetting into the POP3 server to test it properly.

    I'd suggest calling your ISP and double-checking that you are using the right pop3 server and settings. that's what they're there for

    I was referring to the Test Account Settings in Outlook. It worked fine. My ISP lists the same server for both incoming and outgoing, and outgoing seems to work fine.

    Well then it's probably the actual account name or password. You don't need either to send email.

    Sometimes people confuse: [email protected] with yourname.isp.com

    Account name and password in my outlook is my address, without the domain, and then my password.

    :dunno:

    I don't know what to say man, phone the ISP and ask them to step you through it again.
