Connection problems

If you are getting the 'connection to server has failed' error message try using a different port : accounts>properties>advanced - I found 587 for out going mail and 110 for incoming mail worked best, but in some locations have to change outgoing port to 25 (no idea why this should change from location to location).

This has worked for me with a yahoo mail plus account for the last 6 months. I have suddenly developed another problem that other users on here are having and that is a windows security box popping up and continually asking for my password.

Anyone solved this yet? It's really bugging me!

Thanks, Phil
