I have tried the various options from posters on here but not working. Does anyone have the definitive settings for transferring fsnet emails to outlook please ?

Hello @cfjn here is a link containing the settings needed to set up POP3 access to transfer emails from you fsnet account. :
Incoming POP server - pop.orangehome.co.uk
POP username - username.fsnet.co.uk
POP password - email password
POP server port - 110

Hello @cfjn they are:
Outgoing SMTP Mail Server - smtp.orangehome.co.uk
SMTP Username - Full fsnet email address
SMTP Password - Email password
SMTP Server Port - 25 (also 587)

Still not working. Get the message : failed to connect to SMTP server 'smtp.orangehome.co.uk' Check your SMTP server settings.

Hello @cfjn what are you entering as the SMTP Username? Are you using the full email address or alias you would want to send from e.g. email@example.com or if using an alias firstname.lastname@example.org and your usual webmail password? (Please do not post your actual email address or username as examples on here). You can also try changing the outgoing SMTP Mail Server from smtp.orangehome.co.uk to smtp.fsnet.co.uk.

Are you using Port 25 or Port 587 for the SMTP? If Port 587 you must go in Outlook to More Settings ... / Outgoing Server & tick "My SMTP server requires auth" with "Use same settings as Incoming".
Make sure SSL is not ticked for anything under Advanced.
Make sure your POP Username = just yourname.fsnet.co.uk, i.e. no '@' or the word in front.

Hi @Profile closed I am not being asked for SMTP username - just for server & port.
18-03-2017 02:10 PM
@cfjn: That's correct. No SMTP Username is needed or asked for when you are using Port 25. It's only for Authenticated Port 587 that it's needed, but you don't need to use that now.

Hello @cfjn how are you getting on with the SMTP settings? Is it working for you now?
18-03-2017 02:20 PM
Please spell what you have for the SMTP under:
18-03-2017 02:22 PM
Thanks. Tried using both 25 & 587. Does not like 587 and gives me "failed to connect" message using 25.
Cannot find the more settings/ .. in Outlook to try your idea below. How do i find this please ?

Which version of Outlook have you?
18-03-2017 02:29 PM
I am in the new POP acct connection page in Outlook and using smtp.orangehome.co.uk for outgoing SMTP server (does not say mail server).
Still do not see More settings

Yes, if you tell me which version of Outlook I'll be able to tell you how to navigate it.
It'll be easier if you set up the new FSMail a/c in Outlook once whether it works or not & then we can edit it, instead of keep trying to make a new POP3 a/c.

OIC! You are using Connected A/c's in Outlook.com.
