I am with Orange, having signed up with them when it was Freeserve (it then became Wanadoo before changing to Orange). However I have not had to alter the mail settings throughout the changes. I am on Broadband but I believe the following mail settings would be the same for pay as you go:-
The incoming mail server setting I have is: pop.freeserve.co.uk
and the outgoing mail server is: smtp.freeserve.co.uk

There is more info on the following link about the account name mail setting as that is different for Broadband and pay as you go (it has the Freeserve settings as well as the Orange ones). It's a very long link but should be clickable on!

Not sure if this will help you or not but hope it will!

My Freeserve (joined 1999) settings are:

pop.wanadoo.co.uk
smtp.wanadoo.co.uk

Account username is: username.freeserve.co.uk
Works fine.

My account name email setting is the bit that comes after the "@" in my email address. The "@fs" which is at the end of my username does not have to be put at the end of my account name in the email setting.

That's what I meant. If my email address is me@myself.freeserve.co.uk then my username is: myself.freeserve.co.uk

Thumbs up Re: Freeserve/Orange E-mail settings

Quaver the only reason I posted that was because my email address is: me@myself.freeserve.co.uk whereas my username given to me when I joined Freeserve is: myself.freeserve.co.uk@fs
Looking back at the Orange page that I linked to above it seems some people have the @fs at the end of their username but others don't. Sorry for the confusion!

Glad any confusion is sorted now Quaver!
That @fs at the end of our username has caused problems - when setting up an email account we don't have to put it, but when setting up our broadband router we did have to put it! I recently had to set up an email account on a new computer and mistakenly put the @fs and of course the email wouldn't work - it took me a while to figure out what the problem was and delete the @fs!

The connection uses a POP3 Sever. The Server names should be pop.orangehome.co.uk and smtp.orangehome.co.uk. The account name and password should be your username (everything after the @ symbol in the email address) and the internet password.

Thank you.

I thought that by changing from smtp.freeserve.co.uk to smtp.orangehome.co.uk the problems would go away. They don't they come and go, which isn't surprising as both of them point to the same IP addresses (i.e. they are the same set of 7 computers).

I believe the problem is that these servers are overloaded at peak times and Orange is too stingy to sort the problem out!

Can't recieve email, but can send it. Was freeserve dial-up, then wanadoo then orange before getting talktalk broadband. Needed to keep original email address for work. Every thing OK for last six months with occasional 'wrong password' message, which went away if shut down/restart or just wait for a while. Have strange setting as wanted to keep old email and wonder if anyone else like me:
incoming mail (pop3) pop.orangehome.co.uk
outgoing mail (smtp) smpt.talktalk.net.
Have changed outgoing to smpt.orangehome.co.uk - not worked.
error message about password - have reinstalled - not worked.
Error message:
There was a problem logging onto your mail server. Your Password was rejected. Account: 'pop.orangehome.co.uk', Server: 'pop.orangehome.co.uk', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR [AUTH] Invalid login/password pair', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92 - can anyone please advise?

Hiya.

This free prog should give you the info.

Download the pspv.zip file (Download link is near the bottom of the page.) and extract it to its own folder on the PC that has the Freeserve email account, go into the folder and double click on the pspv.exe, it will open a window and display all/most usernames/passwords that are stored on the PC.

You can save the list in a text file, by clicking on File/Save Raw Data. Give the file a name and click the Save button. It should save into the folder you extracted the program to.

Red face Re: Freeserve/Orange E-mail settings

OK, so was with Wanadoo, and then it switched to Orange. Now have a new computer and need to set up the e-mail settings.

Have got the outgoing mails working with:
pop.wanadoo.co.uk

Can't get incoming working with any combination of
mail.
stmp.
mail.stmp
pop.

&

wanadoo.co.uk
freeserve.co.uk
talktalk.co.uk
orange.co.uk
orangehome.co.uk

Any suggestions, other than a new e-mail address?

Also having problems with my other tesco.net outgoing e-mail server!

I joined when it was freeserve. I am currently trying to set up a mozilla email account, i have managed to set things up but am now being asked to set up a password on pop.orangehome.co.uk when i type a password in, it says its incorrect. Is there a general password for pop.orangehome.co.uk that i could try?

You can find all of the correct email settings here and for those with further problems, working alternative fixes can be found at orange smtp email service problems.

I hope these help.

Hi everyone.
The information given above is correct, but to sum up several replies in one...

The usual Freeserve dial-up username format was "user.freeserve.co.uk" (could also be "user.fsnet.co.uk" *).
email address format would therefore be "mymail@user.freeserve.co.uk".

(In reality, "mymail" can be anything at all, and mail will still reach your inbox.
The amount of spam I get with "random-garbage@user.fsnet.co.uk" is unreal)

When converting from dial-up to broadband, username becomes "user.freeserve.co.uk@fs"
BUT email remains the same ("myname@user.freeserve.co.uk")
It looks like that might be where the confusion has arisen.

When I converted to broadband, I chose to keep my same username (but with @fs added).
Anyone who chose a new name, would find that after approx 90 days of non-use (I don't remember the exact period) their old dial-up username expired and email would stop working.
It was possible to reactivate your old account but you had to phone Freeserve, to do it.

Other Freeserve info...
Phone Number:- 0845 079 6699
email... Incoming:- pop.freeserve.net / Outgoing:- smtp.freeserve.net
Webspace:- www.user.freeserve.co.uk
Proxy:- www-cache.freeserve.net / Port:- 8080.
FTP Server:- FTP://uploads.webspace.freeserve.net

* email and username can be either "freeserve" or "fsnet" but all other addresses are "freeserve", as typed.

Hope this helps to clarify things?

Set up a Hotmail account. Once you have done this it is easy to set up for hotmail to receive all your mail from freeserve. Its a doddle, i did it and I am to daft to throw sh*t at
