I have a Pro 100gb shared hsoting. I want to use Outlook to recieve my email.

I've configured an account and given i a password with manager. Ive entered pop3.mcgintyschool.com and smtp.mcgintyschool.com and my name and password into outlook but it tells me it can't connect to the server. I have no idea how to change all this mx malarky.

Can someone please help. I've read the "guide" and tried putting ns0.ovh.net as it suggests with the same problem. Tried the ssl settings: same problem.

I can read and write mail on web mail.

===================== EDIT ==========
OK, I've found out why. It seems the IP address: mail.mediaguard.info:213.186.33.20-213.186.33.20 (which leads to OVH's web mail page) is blocked in Peerblock.

Seems a bit odd having to explain to all my users why their e-mails accounts aren't working. Is there another IP address I can use to bypass this.

Many people use Peerblock and I think its a bit cheeky given the status of the thousands of Kimsufis pumping out seeding on hundreds of private trackers that OVH is blocked for anti-piracy activities ;->
LOL!!
