Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
Which which email service are you trying to connect outlook to?
And which settings did you use?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.


is this what you needed

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
yes, but these settings are incorrect John, we need to get these and the ports entered correctly
I can see you are a first time user to the site. What we do here is either a question and answer type of conversation or remote support where I would actually connect to the computer and have a look and attempt to fix the problem for you.
Remote support can save a lot of time if you are not comfortable performing repairs yourself. Sometimes even with instructions you can make a mistake and make things worse.
I will send an offer through for remote support and should you accept I will connect and see what is going on and fix the issue. Otherwise we can continue to talk like this but I will need to ask a number of other questions and try and walk you through some steps.
Both options are 100% guaranteed by the way. Remote is just quicker and avoids the risk of you making a mistake and doing something wrong.
If you want remote click get extra help. If not simply reply to me.

Im under the impression that the £20 I have paid was for resolving my problem and being a pensioner money is tight so I will have to recline your help.

Also as I said I am not new to outlook have had it over 10 years. I imported it to my laptop from my desktop. The settings I sent you wereoff the desktop.

What happens now as I cannot afford anymore money.

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Its no problem John, as I explained its an optional service.
I just replied with this offer as the settings you provided do not make sense and could never be actually entered into Outlook, so your mis reading the settings from somewhere.
Its ok, we approach this another way.
Can you tell me please which version of outlook you are using?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Sorry to me its Outlook Where will I find that information
