Question and Answer

  • WE RCENTLY SWITCHED TO CENTURY LINK. OUTLOOK WORKS PART OF THE TIME BUT CONTINUALLY ASKS FOR PASSWORD AND TELLS ME TO LOG IN THRU GMAIL. I HAVE LOGGED IN DIRECTLY IN GMAIL AND VERIFIED THE PASSWORD BUT THIS HAS NOT HELPED. SHOULD I CHANGE THE SERVER SETTING? IF SO WHAT SHOULD THEY BE. POP.CENTURYLINK.NET AS INCOMING DOES NOT WORK.

  • I am working with one of your customers who would like her email configured for Outlook. I prefer the IMAP configuration since she is also receiving her email on her iPhone. What are the IMAP Outlook settings for Century Link? Thank you!
