yes. get Id for email from Exchange.
Try in their webmail page. Login
Ask them POP3 and smtp details also. for OE Outlook/thunderbird etc.
different to users with Ip 59.xx.xx.xx and @ dataone in.
ONLY for REF:Dataone Mail Client Configuration
feedback.

May be of interest: Sent mails not saved.
ePrompter Free eMail Notification Software


Presume your email ID is abcd_1234 @bsnl.in default PW: password

2.
To Access mails by POPMAIL (e.g. outlook express, Thunderbird, Eudora etc.) use

SMTP Server : smtp.bsnl.co.in
POP server : mail.bsnl.co.in
In the mail user name give userid with domain name e.g xyz @ bsnl.in
Do not select SSL option as this facility is not supported.
Do select "My server requires authentication" option.

again. i suggest to every one... do not use your ISP's provided email IDs. it is not a good long term solution.

Agree with Admin. ISP provided email IDs has very less space and you will loose it when you change the ISP.

Not exactly. Only when you use the web mail page to log in. ( 5 MB usually)
The question here is using OE or Outlook.
All messages are stored in your Hardisk OE folders.
and once you disconnect a particular ISP, all contacts in address book are to be informed again.
I use @yahoo or @ gmail . I lost my emails in @sify @ rediff @ hotmail etc due to inactivity !!

well pop is outdated and imap syncs your email with the server. most of us have moved on to pop and these email ids simply does not work well with imap.

gmail an exception. can send and receive in OE/Outlook. etc. Some ISP's allow incoming mail but not outgoing mail.( other than with own ISP email ID)eprompter works for all ( except Yahoo mail "some bug" )
