Recommended Posts

It's me again! Altho I have peoplepc dial-up that I do not use as a result of wireless availability, I am unable to send email via outlook express. Can you help me? (once again)

What sort of error messages do you receive?

Do you have any anti-virus software or a firewall running?

Are you on or behind a router?

What pop server do you use for sending your email? (Gmail, your ISP such as Adelphia, Comcast, etc)

Just the ones ya find in Outlook Express when a message is undeliverable. I use peoplepc.com, however I'd like to cancel and don't know what to do.

Make sure your settings are correct. You may need to refer to PeoplePC for the exact settings.

pop.peoplepc.com Port: 110

smtp.peoplepc.com Port: 587

I'm surprised their FAQ didn't cover anything about email.

Q. Can I cancel once I become a PeoplePC Unlimited member?

A. Yes, you may cancel your service by calling our Customer Service department at 1-888-587-9669. Customer Service is available Monday Friday, 9:00 am 9:00 pm EST. Please note: if you pre-pay, you will not be able to cancel your membership after your free trial period.

If you're not using your dial-up account to access the Internet but wish to keep your email address with them, they may require you to keep your account active. However, if you no longer than any use for it, you should be able to safely cancel.

If you call to cancel, definitely ask them about your email and if you are able to access it from the web or via a mail client (Like Thunderbird, Eudora, etc.). They may say that you need to have an active account, they may not. I have never used or dealt with PeoplePC, so it's hard to say.

You may like a GMail account better. Over 2.5GB storage, works perfect with Thunderbird too. If you want a GMail account, see this thread.
