Hi
Incoming mail or POP3 mail is the address given to you by your email service provider such as mail.aol.com
Outgoing mail SMTP is also given by them ,if you don't know what the address is then ask them .

hope this helps

thanks for ur reply:)
sir sir hold on, misconceptions created :-)

i actually work in the designersx company. i was telling u that while configuring my ms outlook i wrongly entered the wrong incoming mail address (that time i didn't know) but after i realized ok my incoming mail address is this. so what should i do to again configure incoming and outgoing mail address ?

my incoming and outgoing mail address is:- webmail.designers-x.com

in my previous comment i was telling you that at my home i tried with the correct mail address (webmail.designers-x.com) and put the right username and password even then oulook gets configured but mail does not send. it says domain name does not exist.

i am filling my outgoing smtp port no. as 110 only then it works otherwise it gives error if i make its default setting i.e  25

thanks

can you post the details this server gives you for the mail setup ?
you don't need to give the password
login e-mail
server for in-mail     <<---  are you sure it is the same for in and out -mail ?
server for out mail

f-kingCommented:
Your outgoing server might need authentication ,in the internet e-mail settings window ( the one in your second picture) click on the Outgoing Server tab and then activate the option that says my server requires authentication and use the current settings if prompted.

mail.designers-x.com same for both but can u tell what username and password i need to fill?

nobusCommented:
>>   what username and password i need to fill?    <<    that is given by the provider.
nobody else knows, unless he let you pick one yourself (so try putting something in there, and note EXACTLY what you put in there)
