Outlook Express settings

By jon_w31 ·
In outlook express 6 on windows xp home.
I set the pop and smtp server names.
Restart the computer.
The pop server address goes from
'my name.tiscali.co.uk' to 'LOCAL HOST'
The smtp server remains unchanged.
Why is this happening and how can I prevent it?
On every restart the pop server is specified as 'LOCAL HOST'?

From what you r saying, you are configuring your mails on a standalone XP-home pc. Try to change the machine name if thats the same as 'my name' in your link to pop server address.
You can try to find out the IP address of 'my name.tiscali.co.uk' and add an entry to your hosts file for that name & IP.
Try it out.
