    This isn't Sympatico support, btw, but I'll attempt to help you.

    Judging from your post, I would wager that you typed the info
    incorrectly. It should be:

    POP3 (incoming server): pop8.sympatico.ca
    SMTP (outgoing server): smtp8.sympatico.ca

    *Note: it's S-M-T-P, not SPMT, SPTM , or any other combination of those
    letters.

    Here's something else that you should look into, unless you like spam:

    The way you wrote it looks screwy to me, but this might work:
    (incoming:)
    POP3.sympatico.ca (pop8 changed to 'pop 3')
    (outgoing:)|
    SMTP.sympatico.ca
    (Note: changed from 'SMPT') Reconfigure your server settings and I
    think you will be ok. Be careful of your dots and no spaces.
