January 14th, 2009, 08:05 AM #1Email Account Dilemma
So I got my DSL connected last night. Crap, it's super fast because I have fiber to the curb. Right now, I have both Time Warner cable and Embarq (formerly Sprint) DSL. All I had to do is unplug the ethernet cable from Time Warner from my router, plug in the ethernet from Embarq, and change from DHCP to PPPoE in my router configuration.
I then setup Thunderbird for my new email account on Embarq. Now, here is my problem. I have Outlook setup with my email account from Time Warner, but I am now no longer able to send/receive email. I assume this is because I changed the domain from nc.rr.com to embarqmail.com in the router.
So, is there any way I can have both the Outlook on Time Warner email and Embarq email working at the same time? In Outlook, it just using the FQDN of smtp-server.nc.rr.com for outgoing and pop-server.nc.rr.com incoming email.
I would like to keep both working so I can work on switching to the new email address on different sites, etc. I should probably check with TW to see if they offer a email forwarding after you leave them, but I doubt it.

Check with Time Warner email support on how to configure Outlook Express for getting/sending email with a different DSL provider. The Port settings in th eadvance section must be changed and I'm sure security settings need to be checked off...Webmaster's... Mike and Charlie

I now pay for a domain(my name) and set it up at GMail. It's accually a GMail account with the 7.5Gig of space and all of the gadgets to go with it. The whole thing costs me $10 a year and I never have to change my email address again.
I'm sorry your having problems setting it up. That's frustrating.
We too are trying to get away from Slime Warner Cable. The $145 a month we send them is getting really old.
