I have a desktop and a laptop using MS Outlook 2007. With the same settings (as far as I can see)
for an email address linking via POP with our server, the laptop succeeds and the desktop fails with a test message. In the popup window "Test Account Setttings", appears first straight away:
"Outlook:Logon to incoming mail server (POP3) - Failed " and then below,
"Send email message - completed"
The error is :Log onto incoming mail server (POP3): Cannot find the e-mail server. Verify the server information in your account properties.
