Log on problems

Error message says ‘Logonfailure: unknown user name or bad password’. I can send emails but not receive. Why is POP3 not working?

Hey @Nick44

Many email providers are stopping or have stopped support for POP3 and are pushing clients to IMAP.
However, there are work arounds if you do not want to do this.
Who is your email provider?

¡Buena suerte!

Thanks for your response and sorry for delay in replying (PC been under repair).

I’m with Outlook (EM Client is my email client).

Any thoughts gratefully received!

Hey @Nick44

If you want to stay with POP3
Here you can see on Youtube how to use setup.
This example is for Outlook but works OK in EMClient.
I have done it for my daughter.

Watch this a few times to understand the procedure.

First you have to make the password with your account
Save the password to use in EMClient later

Next you must setup in EMClient as below.
It is easy to do to start.
Menu ->Accounts ->Add account - DO NOT USE AUTOMATIC ->Click Mail ->Next Below →
Enter Email ->Next ->Select POP3 >
Incoming server enter for Outlook:
User name: your email address
Password: that you saved before ->Click Next
Outgoing server for Outlook:
It tests what you enter
Then Continue without encryption
Continue to end with follow instruction.

¡Buena suerte!
