I have done some research on the net and in the manuals and I can not seem to get Mercury Mail to work right. My friend is trying to help but he is not always available. Let me please tell you what is setup. - Own domain - me @ borg.us - via GoDaddy. I am sorry but this site will not let me do the domain without spaces. - PC1 XP SP2 has Mercury Mail installed. Also runs web server via IIS. - PC2 XP2 SP2 using Outlook to receive mail. - Verizon DSL - Router is set to allow ports 25, 110 for PC1. _ Registered with DYNDNS server to synch IP with website when router resets. MM is set up with MercuryS SMPT Server, MercuryP POP3 Server, MercuryE SMPT Client. In the core module we put in - me @ borg.us - in the "internet name" field. He added it in the LOCAL DOMAINS tab. He created a local user "TheTest" and "test" for the password. In Outlook on PC2 I have created: name : The Test email : mail.borg.us incoming and outgoing : mail.borg.us user name takes email : mail.borg.us password : test MORE SETTINGS > Outgoing server is using same settings as incoming. I do the "test account settings" in Outlook and it fails and it keeps asking me for the password for mail.borg.us. I keep putting in "test" and click SAVE but he keeps popping up. I cancel out outgoing fails, login fails, and of course sending test email fails. Errors say: - Send test email fails. The specified server was found but no response. - Log onto incoming mail server (POP3). Server did not accept user name and password. - Find outgoing mail server (SMPT). Could not connect. My goal is to create up to 10 email accounts that I manage for my home PCs (3 total). Right now trying to receive 1 using PC2. Now I do not understand SMPT stuff or mail servers. This is my first because I am tried of spending money on 2 companies I go through for email (AOL, Verizon). I want to rid AOL and when I move next year, I will loose Verizon email. So I might as well do my own, you know? After the test finally works, I will want to know how to create other email accounts (ex - firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com). P.S. Again, I am not very well verse in mail servers. This is my first. Thank you for any help. God bless.
