Got another query here.

1 I have an isp that allows me to get email via outlook 2007. I have an email address and setup all the pop and smtp setting and the user id and PW ok and it works great, no probs. I now have got a domain name email myname@domain.org.uk and want to get that to come to the same outlook email client.
What do I alter in my settings. ie does pop and smtp and user id/pass stay the same as my isp but alter the email address or what.

I tried it like this :
my isp username
my isp password.

then did test and got two ticks but nothing was in my inbox.

so altered
my isp username to mydomain name
my isp password to my domain pass

did test and failed.
Do I really need to have an exchange thingy account?

any ideas.
