In a nutshell, some ISPs only allow email retrieval if you are on their network. In fact, I know MSN will not work with that email server "smtp.email.msn.com" outside the MSN network.
MSN has published how to retrieve from another server. You should use their instructions.
Trying to use Outlook to retrieve my emails from other ISP but this keeps coming up....help.
'The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'davejones', Server: 'smtp.email.msn.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E'
Have taken out my Email address and put in Dave Jones instead. Thanks in advance
