I have retrieved this info from outlook express (which I am trying to dump) after setting up the web browser (which I am loving!) and can't get past this problem. I am being forced to keep outlook until this is resolved (I've already deleted explorer 5.1, really like your product) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.open mail section of browser 2.setup wizard opens, begin to enter info 3.when I come to po p server, wizard saays this is an invalid entry and holds up the process Actual Results: tried to go into prefs, no way to set pop server from there. Did enter smtp info from there, seems to be fine Expected Results: expected to log onto att's mail server and begin to use mozilla as my default mail program I am using a mac g3 (yeah, I know- it's being replaced soon) with o/s 9.2.2, on at&t's worldnet dial-up service. My setings are as follows: pop server- firstname.lastname@example.org smtp server- mailhost.worldnet.att.net
You have to go into the Edit | Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings menu item. There you will find all the info you need under "Server Settings".
email@example.com doesn't sound like a valid pop server. You need to enter a host name there (you'll be asked for the username later on).
