I use Outlook Express and Windows XP SP3. I used Outlook Express on dial up many years ago. I particularly liked the feature to get a message that my email had been read on the receiving computer and to return a receiving message if needed.
I continued with Outlook Express because I am keen to retain my original email address as it became well known with various charity work I was doing. My email address is in the format firstname.lastname@example.org. Fsnet which was Freeserve is now taken over by Orange.
With the introduction of broadband my internet provider is AOL UK. I have not used their email client @AOL.com because I did not want to change my email address.
After I had had AOL for a while my Outlook Express emails stopped going out. It was reported this was being blocked by AOL and if I wanted to continue using Outlook Express I would have to configure it to an aol.co.uk email address which I did not want to do. Outlook Express emails still come in so I use Orange’s web mail facility to send them out which is a real pain. If I have a really important email I want to be sure has been sent I still us my old dial up facility for Outlook Express.
I would be grateful if someone could please tell me how to send and receive emails in Outlook Express using my fsnet.co.uk email address while keeping AOL as my provider.
