Cannot Setup Plusnet email
I realise that there are a lot of posts about this but i am pulling my hair out. No matter what i do i cannot get my plusnet email to sync and download my emails into Microsoft Mail. I have even tried sending a test message and it doesnt download it either, even though my iPhone gets the message. I have followed the user guide and ever step in both of these posts:
I have checked that my account details and passwords are correct but no matter what it just goes to the "hold on while we fetch your email" and nothing happens (I have left it running for 5 hours). Any ideas or suggestions? I have tried turning on and off SSL and different combinations (other than those listed in the linked posts) of where my email address and user name is entered but no luck.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Re: Cannot Setup Plusnet email
You might be better off finding a different email client. Microsoft WinMail and Outlook Express though not supported are still very functional and can be downloaded and made to run on Win10. OUTLOOK 2016 (proper email) of course goes everything, but you need to pay for that. Many like Thunderbird (I do not). There are others.
You might though find setting the root folder (in the account settings to inbox might just do the trick for you ... but that will not fix the functional issues with the program such as creating its own sent items folder and refusing to use the IMAP server’s DRAFT folder.
