Have migrated an email account from an old laptop to a new laptop and I am getting an 'Authorization Failed' message from the server.


Its an old ihug email address and I am using the following settings:




Incoming Server:


Server Port: 110


Secured: No


Type: POP3


Outgoing Server:


Server Port:25


Type: SMTP




I have checked online for the settings and all my settings appear to be correct.

How have you got your username entered ?
