    The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'IMAP', Server: 'IMAP',
    Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error
    Number: 0x800CCC0E

    Sometime my email is sent but when the otherside tries and sends one back
    they get an error report. Also i get show on my screen as 'incoming mail'
    then it too changes to error.
    I am not sure when i set this up what server to put in it asks POP or
    IMAP and i thought i put the correct one in. to make sure i have done this
    for both. Still having trouble.

    I have send emails under all the names and POP and IMAP things i coud think
    of to my friends but they have not been getting them. or if they have just
    one and they have trouble sending. Does this seem confusing - just think
    how i feel.

    CAN ANY one help. is it just a case that i have set it up wrong?

    The clue is in the error message. Somehow you have typed in the word "IMAP"
    in the server name. The server name is NOT "IMAP". It should be something
    like "imap.tiscali.co.uk". Go to the Tiscali website and look for the
    correct mail settings.

    IMAP connections seldom use port 110. Check if you have one of these
    settings wrong.


    If you've made a mistake in a setting for which the default value
    is correct, the instructions may not tell you about this setting. If
    you suspect that has happened, remove your email account
    under Windows Mail, then restart Windows Mail and use these
    instructions to add the account again. They were written for
    Outlook Express, but should also work under Windows Mail
    if they don't call for the HTTP protocol.

    'IMAP' is not a valid server name, although it is a valid protocol. The
    server names depend on which email provider you are using, so ask them
    for their instructions on setting up to use their email servers. If they
    written instructions for Windows Mail yet, their instructions for Outlook
    Express should also work under Windows Mail if they don't call for the
    HTTP protocol. Many people decide to use their internet providers as
    their email providers also, since most internet accounts include one or more
    email accounts. The instructions are probably somewhere on their web site.
    Or, you could tell us who your email provider is and see if anyone here
    already knows where to find their instructions.
