I have an old blueyonder email account that I've used since millennium.
I'm trying to set it up on a new Windows 10 mail.
I've tried a few imap4 and pop both blueyonder and virginmail but non work. I know passwords right as I've changed it via my phone.
Can anyone please tell me the blueyonder settings and how to set it up
Thanks
