A group of us on a network just changed our ISP to Vodafone's vodafoneathome broadband, foolishly thinking that, like all other ISPs we've ever dealt with, we'd be able to keep our old email addresses; but no - Vodafone won't allow it. So now we need to set up multiple vodafone outgoing email accounts on the one broadband account. Does anyone at Smeggy's know how to do this? Vodafone's technical help people seem to be completely ignorant of all matters relating to broadband and email :banghead: .

just wondering, who did you have the email addresses with before? can you still access these email addresses via webmail or pop3 boxes using the pop3 settings of your old supplier or are they now wiped?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Plusnet

We can still download from Plusnet using the Vodafone broadband, but we can't send vie Plusnet, whereas before, when we were on other ISPs, we could do both. Now our problem is how to set up multiple accounts on Vodafone so that each person can "send and receive" on their Vodafone account without downloading everyone else's emails.

Can you not set up an account with the plusnet outgoing mail server. Which will probably be something like smtp.plusnet.com

or am I missing something?

Plusnet won't let me use tiscali as my sender. I don't know how you used to manage it???

I can put a tiscali address as reply, but have to send it from the Plusnet server. I think they all work like that.

I found out that it might be a Port 25 blocking thing. Although Vodafone claim they do not block port 25, it looks very like they do, since the Windows Mail error message reports it as a port 25 error.

The Vodafone technical help people all said categorically that we could not send emails using another account over Vodafone broadband, but the moderators on the Vodafone forum website say that Vodafone DO allow mail to be sent via third party accounts. All very strange... :confused: :chin: :hmmm: :chin: :confused:
http://forum.vodafone.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=3436

Maybe they've got port 25 blocked by mistake.

Judging by Vodafone's forums a lot of people have this problem, and the moderators always start off as saying there shouldn't be a problem, but by the end of the thread they're all saying "you'll just have to send using the Vodafone account."

Still no help from Vadafone on how to set up multiple accounts or mailboxes...
