???  . . . You do need a real email address . . and a real email address always has something relevant after the @For every email address you have you make a new entry so go through the wizard again ( Tools --> Settings --> Add ):unsure: Bruno

i dont think we understand each other.i had created an account using evolution setup assistant before but it didnt work so i deleted it.now i have to go thru evolution setup assistant one more time and as a default email addres i have ""gaucho@XXXXX084010044003.chello.xx"" .my question is should i change it to some other email address i already have on the other server - like gaucho.....@yahoo.com.ar or it has to be xxxx@chello084010044003.chello.xx ?

For every new account you do in Evolution --> Tools --> Settings --> Add . . and you go through the same steps as above again.If an accout is not good (anymore), you remove it and add a new one.;) BrunoPS: You do need to know the exact pop and smtp address of the default account . . . the next accout only the pop address . . . because you always use only ONE and the same SMTP for sending your mail. ( I have 12 accounts that all use only one SMTP . . . but they all have different pop :unsure: )

No you can not just make something up . . . it has to be a real email address ! ( just use the email address you did get from your ISP as defaut one . . that one has a valid smtp )Look in the papers you got from your ISP . . . there will be a pop AND a smtp address . . those are the ones you want to use where it says "host" in  the dialogs of Evolution . . . and you want to use the full "real"  email address that fits on that pop and smtp host !;) BrunoPS: I maked xxx on your real address . . . you don't want to get spammed :unsure:

GauchoThat can not be your default email address . . . . use the one  you got from your ISP . . . . and yahoo is probably web-based . . . I do not know if it has pop . . . but you certainly can NOT use it as smtp ! ( I  never use Yahoo or Hotmail ):unsure: BrunoPS: You have cable or adsl from a provider where your connection is logged it . . they have the smtp server you need to use to send mail

so if my default is xxxxxxx.com i got to stick to this one right? or could i change it?the problem is that my default address is quite unweildy,there is a lot of digits and it would be difficult to remember it in case somebody asks me for it.

You do not have to use your default account to send mail . . nor even to get mail . . . but it needs to be configured as default because you use their servers to send mail ( note: their SERVERS not specially their email address )  . . . . Like I said I have 12 addresses and they al use the smtp server of my adsl provider to send mail.( Nobody will see what smtp host/server you use . . . they just will see the email address you choose to send the mail from and that does not have to be the default one):unsure: BrunoPS: Once your default is set up and working we can tackle the Yahoo one.PS2: Send an email to yourself to check if it works.

Why would you do that ??  . . it has to log in on the pop-server to check if your email address has mail . . . . . it does NOT have to log in on the smtp-server ( because that is your isp ) so you can send mail as DonaldDuck@disneyland.com . . but nobody can reply to you.B) BrunoJust fill in the stuff your internet-provider gave you . . . and simply never use that account ! ( and no-one will ever see or need the email address from that account )

Yes . . . . and when you made that account you go on and make a second account and never use the first one  . . . it is just there to connect to the SMTP . . . .you can even make the second the default once all the stuff is set up and working and it will still use the SMTP of chello0840100he44003.chello.pl . . . . but nobody will ever notice, they will just see the email address you like better and use as the "new default" . . . But first you have to set up the first one as default ( xxxx@chello0840100he44003.chello.pl ) and only if all works well and you added more email addresses you can change what address the default is by pushing one bottun.B) BrunoPS: My guess is that the pop host is:  pop.chello0840100he44003.chello.pl and the smtp host: smtp.chello0840100he44003.chello.pl . . . . but it can also be mail.chello0840100he44003.chello.pl for the pop and also mail.chello0840100he44003.chello.pl for the smtp . . . . or even pop3.chello0840100he44003.chello.pl and mail.chello0840100he44003.chello.pl . . . Just check the papers, or the site of your ISPPS2: Looks like yahoo uses pop ( but only if you pay for it :( ) . . . . . . . you need another free account with regular pop access !

YES that is your ISP . . . and now search their site . . . . . if I am correct and they do it the same as the Dutch UPC it will be:pop host address: mail.upc.com.pl smtp host address: mail.upc.com.pl B) Bruno
