Hi, I've tried to import emails from Orang to Gmail, but get this message, "Gmail couldn't identify your POP server. Please enter your POP sever information" Where do I find this information?

Ah, OK, you don't get your own domain & therefore multiple email addys, which is what I was after. So I'm paying 1&1 about £15 pa for one.

You only get 1 email addy & so is no diff from free GMail etc.


Your own domain name and hosting to have numerous email accounts would cost you around 75pw from someone like https://www.vidahost.com/web-hosting/pricing#plans

You would then not be at the mercy of ever losing your email address[es] and can manage your email accounts at ease. Helpful staff that speak English available 24 hours should you need them. This is by far the most sensible option to take rather than opting for a free, web based, email client.

If you do become a Gmail user, or know someone who is, I would recommend reading this web page:

So choose wisely!

What is the domain of your email addy?

1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU => 2011: Orange 20 Meg WBC

That's £3 per month = £36 per year. That's dear!

I'm paying about £15 / year this year & £22 / year in following years from 1&1 for the same thing. The email hosting is actually £1.19 per month.

I don't think that the free email addy that E7er got from 1&1 is just Webmail; it is POP3'able too.

Pay a year up front, then it's £29 pa. But then, are we comparing like for like? What storage quota do you get with 1&1? And does the hosting give you the option to have a web site?

Read EE's dedicated Help page for more information on the Orange Email closure


Thanks XRaySpeX for the heads up and I am very grateful as I am able to make a smooth transition in plenty of time.

To date I have not received any notification from EE about the closure of the EE/Orange webmail service.

I wonder if anyone has received any form of communication from EE regarding this matter?

No but 1&1 suits me to the 'T':
  • Storage: Same = 2GB.
  • Mailboxes: Only 1 with 1&1 but it's all I need as it takes multiple aliases.
  • Website: I have no need for my own.

You should tell GMail Import that your POP3 settings are:

Account: Your email addy
Password: Yours
POP Username: yourname.wanadoo.co.uk
POP Server pop.orangehome.co.uk
Port: 110
SSL: OFF
