Windows 7 - setting up an email account

Asked By Mp on 10-Jun-10 12:32 AM
Ok I had to redo my computer and I used to use this email all the time but
now I cant set it up right.
For incoming I used to use pop.insight.rr.com
for outgoing was  smtp.insight.rr.com

this is not right I use insight which is a form or Time Warner. This is the
error I get  when I hit download  mail and I followed instructions ugh, I use
a pop3 at leaast I always did.
The host 'pop.insight.rr.com' could not be found. Please verify that you
have entered the server name correctly.
Account: 'pop-server', Server: 'pop.insight.rr.com', Protocol: POP3, Port:
110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D

Mac thank you I can get mail now but not send any other ideas? I used the
pop-server.insight.rr.com and the smtp-server.insight.rr.com and I get this
error....

Make sure you have send authentication enabled.
Go to Tools, Accounts, select that account, Properties, Servers.
Enable the "My server requires authentication" option.
