Question and Answer

  • Hello I am writing on behalf of my mother as I have just purchased a Windows 8 phone for her and they have a plusnet account. I have used the details from This page in order to set up the email account on her phone which has been successful to an extent. The problem I have is that she is able to receive emails on the phone... But currently not able to send emails from the phone. I have used the details above to set up the account on the phone...but it doesn't seem to be working. If there is any help you would've able to supply in this respect it would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks Andy Mortimore
