Open Outlook Express.

At the top of the page click on the 'Tools' menu and then select 'Accounts...'.

Click on the 'Mail' tab at the top.

Highlight the problematic email account and click on the 'Properties' button.

Make sure your name and email address are listed in this screen.

Click on the 'Servers' tab at the top.

Make sure that your settings look like the settings shown in this screenshot.

The following are the most important:

  • 'Incoming mail (POP3)':

    Replace with: smtpauth.hopitelecom.net
  • 'Account name':
    Replace with: username@hopitelecom.net
  • 'Password':
    Replace with: Your password.
  • Outgoing Mail Server:
    Put a checkmark beside 'My server requires authentication'

Click on the 'Settings...' button to the right.

Make sure the dot is in the first option, 'Use same settings as my incoming mail server' and click the 'OK' button.

Click on the 'Advanced' tab at the top.
