NFN Mail with another ISP

NFN mail account when using another ISP

Using an NFN mailbox with a High Speed Connection

 
Many Naples Free-Net users use a High Speed connection and wish to retain their NFN account and their e-mail address.  The following changes are necessary in their e-mail program settings to allow this. 

NOTE: if you are connecting using another ISP, such as Comcast or Century Link, and simply want to keep using your NFN mail box account, follow the instructions at:
http://faq.naples.net/2010/10/sendreceive-nfn-mail-remotely-and-securely/
and do not do the settings below.  The link above to secure settings is the preferred way to keep using your NFN e-mail with another ISP in Outlook Express, Windows Mail, Eudora or Thunderbird. 

Also note that 5 additional email addresses are available to Premium Accounts.  Visit the NFN Members Services listing page for links to this service.

Outlook and Outlook Express

Tools/Accounts, highlight NFN account/click Properties/Servers

Make sure the POP setting is “mail.naples.net” and the outgoing mail (SMTP) setting is set to the address of the high speed service being used:
NFN DSL –  mail.naples.net
Comcast – smtp.comcast.net
Century Link – smtp.centurylink.net
Road Runner – smtp-server.swfla.rr.com

Click “Apply” before exiting to save.

Also….In Tools/Accounts/Properties/Connection Tab, make sure “Always connect to this account using” is checked AND that “Local Area Network” is selected in the white box.
