FSmail cannot be used through outlook, outlook express or any other email client.
Fsmail is freeserves own version of webmail, only available from freeserves home page

Cheers Derek,
that settles that then.

Its for a friend.
I guess it will have to be safe-mail.net,
he had wanted it on fsmail,
unless you could suggest a UK based mail,
that is pop3 compatible.

the only ISP independant pop 3 mail I know in the UK, that is fairly reliable and free is breathe

http://www.breathe.com

It has had problems the last few days, but that's the first time in about 1 year.

If he has a freeserve account then any of the freeserve pop accounts.

Or if he is willing to pay then a totally independant provider.
I use http://easily.co.uk for my business type email

£9.99 every 2 years for a .co.uk name and £9.99 per year for email service. well worth it

Thank you,

I have set up an e-mail address with breathe,
i will now try to set up the Outlook to interact with it.

I had not realised that email had now become
quite so commercial.

Well that seems to be working OK now.
Ive made a new 'Inbox' for him,
and re-directed likely looking mail to it,
using 'Message Rules'.

Cheers, John
