Common Questions

FOR OUTLOOK 2000 USERS

Q: What do I do when I get an error that reads "cannot authenticate to the server",or "a pop up that wants me to put in my username and password"?

1. In Outlook 2000, go to the Tools in the top menu, and select Services from the drop down menu. A box will appear called "Services".

2. Once in the Services menu find your Internet Mail or the mail that you have setup to receive mail through. Double click onto the name. This will open the Properties box.

3. Once in the Properties box, you will need to check a couple things.
Check these settings:

A. Check that you are pointed to the correct Incoming and Outgoing mail server.*
B. Check and see if your account name and password are correct.
C. Look and see that remember password is checked.
D. Lastly, make sure that "My server requires authentication" is checked.
