    Remove personal info like email address and name etc. Removing server names has no purpose lol

    Ok thanks marcosdipaolo,

    It looks as though you have your own domain, and you say that the ip address get you further, but still no mail.

    I don't see the ports and I can't determine what the host wants without knowing who the host is.
    If you just want o find the eMail settings on the host page and post those here, that would be great.
    Sometimes, it's a little thing - changing port 995 to 587 or requires SSL or does not require SSL.
    It's all in the definition.

    What eMail did you previously use? I used Windows Essentials Mail (weMail aka WLM).

    I've abandoned Win10 mail and installed weMail - much better control over configuration and messages.
    but, you have to turn on .NET 3.5 to get it to install.
