KLJH Posted March 21, 2008 Share Posted March 21, 2008 My ISP is SBC global. I am a spamcop subsciber. I have used it for years to send my outgoing email (under the basic assumption that I cannot send outgoing email from spamcop. First, can I send outgoing email from Spamcop? If so, how? If not, here is the email error message: Task 'pop.spamcop.net - Sending' reported error (0x800CCC0F) : 'The connection to the server was interrupted. If this problem continues, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). The server responded: 553 From: address not verified; see http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/orig...om-07.html' When I go to that page, I am told I need to add my account: If you received an error message (553) while sending an email via your external mail client, your alternate non-Yahoo! email address is not verified. To properly use your POP service, please follow these instructions. 1. Click Options in the upper-right corner of the page. If you are using the All New Yahoo! Mail, click Mail Options in the menu that appears. 2. In Yahoo! Mail Classic under â€œManagementâ€, click Mail Addresses. If you are using the All New Yahoo! Mail, click Accounts and then Add or edit an account. 3. Click Add. 4. In the box, enter an account name for your own reference (for example, Work, School, The One Where My Name Is Lenny, etc. â€“ no one else will see this) and click Continue. 5. Look now: two boxes! In the first one, put the Name youâ€™d like others to see when they get email from this address. In the second one (this is the part youâ€™ve been waiting for), type the Email address youâ€™d like send from â€“ from within Yahoo! Mail! (Youâ€™ll be asked to verify this other address in an email we will send to you there.) Click Continue. 6. Next you'll see "Step 3 Setup Mail Server." Click Skip this Step. 7. On the page that opens, check to make sure youâ€™ve entered the correct email address. If you need to make any changes, click Edit Address. If it looks fine, click Send Verification to generate the email we send to you to make sure this is an actual account you use. We need to do this to help prevent spam! 8. The â€œVerify Accountâ€ page opens. Hereâ€™s the easiest way to complete your setup and start sending mail from the new address: 1. Leave this "Verify Account" page open. 2. In a different browser window or application, sign into your other Mail account. 3. Look for an email from Yahoo! Member Services, and open it. 4. Copy the â€œconfirmation codeâ€ in the last line of the email by either double-clicking it, or clicking and dragging over it, then either clicking Copy from the Edit menu or pressing Ctrl + â€œcâ€. (Mac users press Command + â€œcâ€.) 5. Get back on the â€œVerify Accountâ€ page and Paste that confirmation code in the box beside â€œConfirmation Code:â€. You can paste by clicking Paste in the Edit menu, or by pressing Ctrl + â€œvâ€. (Mac users press Command + â€œvâ€.) 6. At the bottom of the page, click Verify Account. 7. OK, last step! A sign-in page opens with your ID already filled in. Sign in with your password. 8. Youâ€™re done. See the new account in the list on your Mail Accounts page? Now you can easily send from the web or your external email client of choice. That's it! People receiving the message will see it as being sent from that address. I followed these instructions and added my spamcop address as instructed. I still get the same error Here is what I was presented with Step 2: Enter Email Address KLJH Please enter your name and email address below. This will allow you to send mail from this account using the Yahoo! Mail interface. XXX[at]spamcop.net (entered actual email address) Name: This name will appear in the From line of mail sent from this account. Email: Note: You are required to verify that you own this account. Then, I received a verification email and completed it as instructed. Still no luck. Any thoughts or suggestions? THanks, KLJH Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
