Connecting to MSN Through Outlook Expres

By lylea42 ·
Just recently install a new NT network and everything works fine except that I cannot get a connection to my email through MSN on Outlook or Outlook Express. I am able to connect OK to the internet with my account information and IE5 but I receive an Error5 Access Denied message when trying to connect to MSN for my Email.
Is there a setup similar to Win98 where I can setup one machine to connect then link the other machines to the internet through the single connection without having to install Proxy or is there a means of writing a script to allow NT using RAS and a single modem setup.

Connecting to MSN Through Outlook Expres

by howard_pincham In reply to Connecting to MSN Through ...

If I understand your question, you have network with an NT server machine and a NT Workstation client that you use to dialup your ISP. I assume that you are connecting to MSN, if not, the error is probably that the other ISP cannot route POP3 traffic to MSN's mail servers. If that is not the problem, be sure that the mail server names and DNS addresses are correct on the dial up connection settings in Outlook.

Your question about establishing an Internet Connection Sharing(ICS) arrangement like Win98se offers must be done via Proxy Server, unless you are willing to invest in a third-party application. Hope this helps. hhp

I have the same setup, I ran across a problem like this myself and found it to be a simple setting I overlooked. Make sure in Outlook Express under the mail account/properties/servers you have the "Log on using secure password authentication" setting checked. This solved my problem, hope it helps you!

This process work once and then I was unable to connect again. Went to Win98 for the Workstation. Security isn't an issue so switch to easier OS for this network. Thanks
