Your reply was the same as I got from Wildblue the first time I contacted them. I set up OE three different times with the same result. WB hasn't bothered to reply to me again and that frosts me. From all indications this is a server problem and the least they could do would be to show a little concern. Thanks for your input.

In reply to: yes I did

account's PROPERTIES and the Servers tab and ENSURE you have NOT selectd Log on using 'Secure Password Authentication'.

I have seen this done many times and the check mark is easy to miss.

Assuming that you do not have that checked Click on the ADVANCED tap and make sure that you also do not have (under SMTP) This server requires a secure connection (SSL)

If that isn't the problem and you are sure that the passwords aren't improper (wrong spelling or case) it is time to get on the phone and call the ISP.

Wildblue finally got around to get back to me and the problem was "server requires authentication" Your'e right. That checkmark is easy to miss (especially when youv'e stared at the screen for sooo long) Thanks for all the input

Often it is indeed the little details that are so easy to overlook that do us in.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
