fast4 email server settings? also price drop??

hello one and all- found this forum looking for help re fast4 which i take it is now part of breathe?

so nice of them to (not) tell me of the change..

at present i can only receive emails using outlook, outgoing gets an error 550.. ?? was using smto.fast4.net, also tried mailhost.fast4.net as on their site..

tried these, using both user ID, and email address to login, no joy..

ALSO** i see the unmetered service is now advertised at £6.99.. though they were still charging £8.99.. dont they have to notify users of changes lke this?

if email not sorted soon, i'm off.

I'm not sure if this is the case with Fast4 because everybody has been very quiet recently, but when Breathe took on other ISPs it swapped the users e-mail onto their own servers. Also it should be smtp.fast4.net not smto.fast4.net but I'm assuming you just made a typo since SMTP is the traditional outgoing server for all ISPs.

However it looks like a problem at their end rather than a server change because you can still receive e-mail, suggesting that the servers remain unchanged. I also just tried pinging smtp.fast4.net and it responded fine so I'd contact them to find out what's happening.

Be aware that e-mails problems and Breathe are sadly not uncommon.
 
thanks- smto was a typo (great start!)

found these poking around the breathe site.. seems to work for mem though wtf is macunlimited??

mailin.macunmimited.net (for fast4 peeps, mail.fast4,net still seems to work)
mailout.macunlimited.net

I have just checked mine and it does work although it shows error messages.
In outlook express a/c check
Incoming server is a : POP3

Address: mail.fast4.net
smpt.fast4.net
Outgoing server port: 25
Incoming : 110

Don't check any boxes for authentication.

Incoming name server a/c name: my email address not isp login
password: isp login password
