ziggles,

Set up an account for each address in Outlook.  When you send an email, use the pull down arrow to select from the From field the address that you want to use.

I have done that.  When you test settings it keeps asking for my username and password yet the password is correct so I cant understand whats going on.

For each account  you need to put in login name, password, POP3 and SMTP server names, and all the other settings require to send.

Do these accounts have POP3 access?  What email account are these?  Did you put your POP3 server name in correctly?

Yes, its a pop3 email address I purchased from www.123-reg.co.uk

It states on there website some instructions for outlook express:
http://www.123-reg.co.uk/support/trouble.pl?id=24&switch=POP3%20Mail%20boxes&from_faq=0

I have tried to adapt them for outlook 2003.  

Incoming(POP3): pophost.123-reg.co.uk
Outgoing(SMTP): mail.btopenworld.com

Check with www.123-reg.co.uk to determine if POP3 access has been turned on.

Hi war1,

I contacted 123-reg and they told me they dont have an outgoing server.  So Im not bothering with them anymore as I believe thats point less.  I have just signed up with 1and1 Internet Ltd who has been recommended to me as a good company.

123-reg email service does not SMTP server.  That is why you cannot send.

I have another issue you may be able to help me with.  I have been trying to add some pop3 accounts to outlook but every time I click send receive it asks me to ENTER NETWORK PASSWORD so I click ok and it just keeps popping up.  Its the correct password but why does it still pop up?  I have contacted the company and all passwords etc... are correct.  Do you think it could be something my end or there end?

Make sure your password and login name is correct.  Login name may need to full email address instead of username.

If you just got the account, it may take a few hours to turn on POP3/SMTP access.  Check with your email provider if that is the case.

ziggles,

Restart Outlook.  Now can you right click on the Outbox email and select Delete?

If no joy, Create a new PST file.

Then drag all the emails and contacts addresses to the new PST file.

Once you have everything working, you can delete the old PST file.
