    Mail not Sending from Windows 8 mail


    I have set up my optusnet POP3 mail accounts in the Windows 8 mail program, and although it appears to be receiving mail ok, the messages I have sent are still sitting in the outbox. Why aren't they sending and how do I get them to send?

    I have also set up a GMAIL account and linked my POP3 accounts to this as an alternative, and seem to be getting mail to that account, however I can't seem to pin the Gmail to my front page, can anyone help with getting it there?

    Hi welcome to the forum. you have to make sure your ( outgoing ) smtp setting are ok. Contact your ISP support for know the detail especially that mail don't support pop account, so they have to give you the detail for a imap account.
