    Hello,

    The Freedom2Surf incoming and outgoing email servers are:

    incoming mail server: inmail.f2s.com
    outgoing mail server: outmail.f2s.com

    Your username is your full email address, and any symbols should be replaced with dashes

    I'm trying desperately to reinstate my wife's outgoing email after this went down a couple of weeks ago. Can you also specify SSL status, authentication (I'm guessing password) and server port please. Also, do you replace @ in the email address with a dash? I'd be really grateful if you could help. Many thanks.

    Hi David,

    The F2S service appears to be hosted by TalkTalk, but I don't see email setting listed on their pages anymore - TalkTalk Help

    I recommend giving them a call and asking support for the current settings.

    The server name is still inmail.f2s.com , regardless of if you are configuring SSL or not.

    I did some checking and it appears that the mail server listed above does support both regular and secure POP3 & IMAP.

    > telnet inmail.f2s.com. 110
    Trying 85.119.249.98...
    Connected to inmail.f2s.com..
    Escape character is '^]'.
    +OK <48925.1524055413@proxy005.apm-internet.net>

    > telnet inmail.f2s.com. 995
    Trying 85.119.249.66...
    Connected to inmail.f2s.com..
    Escape character is '^]'.

    >telnet inmail.f2s.com. 143
    Trying 85.119.249.98...
    Connected to inmail.f2s.com..
    Escape character is '^]'.
    * OK APM IMAP Redirector ready.

    > telnet inmail.f2s.com. 993
    Trying 85.119.249.66...
    Connected to inmail.f2s.com..
    Escape character is '^]'.

    Sorry - I spoke to TalkTalk before posting. They deny all knowledge of f2s, so were unable to help. Why am I not surprised?
