I was a Talktalk customer who was moved to Fleur Telecom. I have used Windows Live Mail as my mail client. Fleur recently upgraded my service to fibre broadband and sent me a new router. I had to change the SMTP to fleurtelecom.co.uk from tiscali.co.uk to get my emails to send. This worked for a while, then there was a long Talktalk outage for both ingoing and outgoing emails. Then OK for a bit. I received an small email from I company I had dealt with which asked me to opt in to receiving news from them by replying to their email. I did this, but my mail bounced back. I went to their website, but my email bounced back. There was an SPF message saying I was not allowed to send from my Ip address to tiscali. Error 550 it was. I tried sending messages to friends and they eventually turned up in their spam. This, I have been told is because of THEIR settings. Yet none of them had me marked down for spam before. Now when I try to send, I get that the relay isn't allowed, but sometimes I get the bounce back message, but the mail DOES send. I have tried phoneing Fleur, who directed me to Talktalk who read from a list of things to do without even listening to what the problem was. Eventually she got me to try Webmail, and because that sent, the problem was deemed solved. However, she had told me to change the SMTP back from Fleur to tiscali and to change the ports, this hadn't worked so I had changed them back. At the moment I have set up another email account with gmail and have that working happily with Windows Live Mail. I don't really want to lose my tiscali email. I've had it such a long time and so many people know it. Any ideas out there?

Thanks again. All still working. You had already mentioned the ports on the first table but I think I may have used the IMAP ports for the POP by mistake which could be why your first solution didn't work. Mea culpa!

It has been a series of errors actually mostly with outgoing mail.
This latest error is
An unknown error has occurred.
Subject 'stilll chaecking the mail'
Server Error: 554
Server Response: 554 cm5gb1 smtp.talktalk.net ESMTP server not available
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC6F
I have outgoing port 995 at the moment but i used to have 110.
I haven't checked the box My server requires authenication because it will not recognise my password.
I have put the SMTP back to tiscali, as advised on this forum. Fleur telecom got me to change it to smpt.fleurtelecom.co.uk and it did work for a while.

Thanks for persevering with this. I've sent an email to myself via webmail and it works no problem and yes gmail is working too. It is only the tiscali email in Windows Mail that isn't working any more.
You've asked for screem shots of things but I've never done that before and I won't be able to try to do that until tomorrow. Meanwhile, thanks;

You say that tiscali webmail works. And that gMail works. There's honestly no reason why tiscali email via a client shouldn't work.
I'll need some screenshots of all the settings / error reports to figure out what's going on. Just obscure the first part of your email address / password.

Thank you for clarifying the Password stuff. I have it set how you suggest. My success at sending emails was shortlived. I was sending them to myself. Yes the incoming port is set at 995. Now the little box pops up when I want to send a message where I have to put in my password. It just will not recognise it and keeps coming back. Then there is another box with an Internet Security Warning that pops up as well. I've tried using th smtp.tiscali.co.uk and the smtp.fleurtelecom.co.uk settings (which did work when fleur telcom told me to do it). This whole thing is driving me demented, that and the blocked drains I've been dealing with this lovely sunny day!

Just to be clear. Windows Live mail settings, under the Servers tab, has tick boxes for Password authentication. It's the clear text one you need to tick, NOT the Secure Password Authentication (SPA). The password doesn't need encrypting. If the password is encrypted then that's why it isn't recognised.
The outgoing mail server - needs authentication tick box and click on Settings - use same settings as incoming mail server but, again, do NOT use SPA.
In the Advanced tab the port numbers as per the recommended table and requires a secure connection (SSL) ticked.
When you say it all starts working and you're receiving emails, I assume you mean when you set the Tiscali mail server's incoming port to 995.

Thank you for your reply Gondola. I have tried all the things you say, with the POP settings which were more or less what the phone help told me but unfortunately they didn't work. Password authentication just never worked as it would not recognise my password.
What has happened since I posted though, was that my mail seemed to sort itself out and start arriving not as spam again even with the ports as 25 and 110. After I tried your fix, that wouldn't work again so I put back fleurtelecom.co.uk as the smtp and just as something I hadn't tried before I switched to the default outgoing port of 995 and ping ping ping arrived my emails I had sent to myself.
I know it doesn't make sense and runs counter to the advice but it seems to work for now.

You should use tiscali recommended email settings and ensure that the:
The Tiscali email settings you need are:
|Account Type||IMAP (recommended)||POP3|
|Login / Usernamefirstname.lastname@example.orgemail@example.com|
|Incoming mail server||imap.tiscali.co.uk||pop.tiscali.co.uk|
|Outgoing mail server||smtp.tiscali.co.uk||smtp.tiscali.co.uk|
As there isn't an email service provided by fleur telecom I would expect your use of the fleurtelecom server name to flag up as potential spam on recipient email services and hence why you're getting emails rejected.
