Setting Up a newsgarden.org POP3 Account in Outlook 2002 For Sprint/Earthlink Users

(To request a free #newsgarden email account click here.)

The instructions from Earthlink Tech Support with modifications for configuring Outlook 2002 to check a newsgarden.org pop3 e-mail account.

It may be that you can just include the information in step #8 (below) on the web site, and add it to the page that contains information about applying for/setting up a newsgarden.org e-mail account. The incoming/outgoing server information is already listed there, so you could easily add a notation that Earthlink users should use smtpauth.earthlink.net as their outgoing (SMTP) server since Earthlink blocks Port 25. However, an Earthlink user would also need to know that the outgoing mail server requires authentication


Note: Earthlink blocks Port 25. All of their users are required to use Earthlink’s outgoing mail (SMTP) server to send email, if Earthlink is the current ISP they are using to connect to the net.

1. Open Outlook 2002

2. Go to Tools -> E=mail accounts

3. Select "Add a new e-mail account" then click Next

4. Select POP3, then click Next

5. Type in User Information (Your Name, username@newsgarden.org)

6. Type in Login Information for your newsgarden.org account (Username, Password)

7. Find the line labeled “Incoming mail server (POP3)” and type in: pop.newsgarden.org

8. Find the line labeled "Outgoing mail server (SMTP)" and type in: smtpauth.earthlink.net

9. Click on the "More Settings" button

10. Click on the "Outgoing Server" tab

11. Check the box labeled "My Outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication"

12. Select "Log on Using"

13. Type in your full e-mail address as the account name (username@earthlink.net)

14. Type in your Earthlink account password

15. Click OK

16. Click Next

17. Click Finish

You are now all set to send mail using Earthlink’s new authenticated SMTP server. Make sure you delete anything in the Outbox before testing. Also, keep in mind that this will not work if your current ISP (other than Earthlink) blocks Port 25.


.Hope this helps someone so they don’t have to go through the headache I went through trying to figure this out!

Help for Windows XP on Dalnet (as well as on Coolchat):

You might want to share this little tidbit with others who are on Windows XP and having the problems of ident killing them on connect. I can now get on first time every time :)

1. Go into Control Panel --> Network Connections
2. Right click "Local Area Network" and select "Properties"
3. Left click the advanced tab
4. Left click the settings button
5. Under services, left click the add button
6. For description type "Ident", for Name of IP put the name that identifies your system with your ISP
OR your IP if it is static. ( If you are not sure what that is, go to http://whatismyipaddress.com )
7. In both external and internal ports, enter 113 by default and TCP.
8. Click OK all the way out.
