Hi all I'm confused. I was unable to receive or send emails for a few days and having spoken with eircom I was advised to change my server settings from mail1 to webmail for both incoming and outgoing mail. This I did but, then I could only receive emails and was unable to send. Having got frustrated after technical support working hours which incidentally finish at 10pm, I visited the eircom technical support section of their website which told me to set my server back to mail1.eircom.net which I did. Then I could send but not receive. If I've confused anyone then your with me so far. Now! having played around for a while and exploring a little, I have discovered that if I set my server settings for incoming mail as webmail.eircom.net and outgoing as mail1.eircom.net I'm working both ways. I'm totally baffled to know what is going on here? Anyone able to clarify what is eircom at. Is anyone having similar problems? Did I miss some big announcement that said you had to change your settings or is it just down to location location location. (smiles) Edel..
