Hi
I am in australia, not that really matters, but my boyfrien has just connected the internet, he is Auckland, with Ezy Networks
He is trying to set up outlook express to send and receive emails
just wondering if anyone can help with email servers and settings
such as the incoming and outgoing mail servers he needs to put in.

any ideas appreciated =)

thanks.
Kylie.

They almost appear to be a pseudo virtual isp.

http://www.nsp.co.nz
http://www.uplink.co.nz

The first site seems to go on about a VPN connection to Zest, and later says Congratulations, you're now connected to Ezy Networks, etc.etc, and links to the uplink site.

Jp.

Best to never use ISP email where possible - get a domain and a hosting account (from $60 a year), or use something like Gmail which also has a pop3 and smtp server available for use with Outlook Express and other mail clients.
