    Hi, for newcomers who doesn't already know, you can now create lse email from the lseforyou website.

    For those who already know and/or have been using that for a while, do you know how can I forward emails form this address, or set up mozilla thunderbird for it?

    Thanks!

    I can't get it to work though. When I put my details in, it just says the details I've put don't match theirs. And since you only get 5 attempts (after which you have to go to their IT help desk - they refuse to help online), I'm gonna leave it until we get the offer pack.

    Same here..I don't want to risk it. Until someone else verifies that you can register, I'm not trying again!

    Yes, you can create it. I just made it last night. First attempt. I'm not sure what's the big fuss with registering the email, perhaps it's because it was a very simple procedure for me when I made it: just key in whatever information you have with LSE, name, birthday, ID number. Took me 30 seconds.

    It is not allowing me to create an e-mail address; it just says that my details don't match those on their database. Probably because they say register in mid-september?

    It probably means you haven't enter the detail the way you did when you registered? It seems to me that's the case since I'm a new student and I got my email registered last night in a snap. And the new mail is working. I just need to figure out how can I set it up in Thunderbird...

    LSE don't have instructions for Thunderbird but if you read through the settings instructions for a similar program like Outlook Express you should be able to figure it out.

    You want the IMAP settings.

    Thanks. I can get my inbox to work but I can't set up my outbox. The SMTP server from LSE doesn't respond.

    You only get 5 attempts to activate your account, that's what the 'fuss' is about.

    Are you a undergraduate or graduate student?

    If you only have 5 attempts at it, and don't feel like "risking" it (I failed to see what's the worst that can happen on the down side, maybe a chat with IT later?), then don't try it... Perhaps I should state it more explicitly: please don't "fuss" the thread w/ primarily meaningless messages and divert the whole point of the thread? I'm trying to ask for help on how to use the mail on an email client, not trying to convince why you should use your 5 attempts.

    For the record, I'm a graduate student, not an undergraduate. Perhaps that could give you the piece of mind which relieves you from the obligation of using one of your 5 precious attempts.

    That could be your ISP's fault. LSE uses port 25 for the SMTP which a lot of ISPs block (my own does it). It's quite annoying - I've yet to find a way around it other than sending emails from the webmail when on an ISP that blocks it.

    Calm down. This is a forum. I fail to see how people asking why their email address set up isn't working harms you in any way, or diverts any attention away from your ostensibly life-threatening problem. :rolleyes:

    Edit: by the way, the undergrads who have posted in this thread have had no luck activating their email address, which suggests that the facility is only open to graduates for the time being.

    tried 3 times... didn't work for me. I'll just wait till mid september before I try again.

    I don't see what the fuss is about the 5 attempts... I really don't think after 5 attempts that LSE will not let you have an IT account with them anymore...

    The fuss is that you'd have to waste time going to their IT help desk in person when it's actually just easily done online if you wait.
