I am trying to setup my TPG email in the latest Outlook 365.
I have followed every how to I can find and it just will not connect at all.
Server - mail.tpg.com.au
Authentification is turned off as instructed in guide I followed.
I used this guide and it simply doesn't work. I keep getting asked for username and password.
I am able to add all other email address I have it just the TPG account that just won't work.
Over the years I have had non stop problems with the TPG mail system not responding and letting every bit of spam email thru even though the filter level is set at it's highest level. The TPG Spam filter is as useless as ** on a bull.
Yes I have followed that guide and Outlook keeps putting up a dialog box asking for username and password. I deleted the @TPG.com.au of of the username and it still won't accept it.
The server won't accept the username and password even though both are correct. xxx is an email alias so I used the actual account username xxxx and it won't accedpt that either.

OK, I contacted technical service from TPG.
Guess what? They told me that they could not fix it, they need to contact me with email-technical staff.
And guess what, again? I supposed to get call from them today and nothing happen.
I am with TPG for 12 years, and I was happy with them in general.
But now, they simple DICIDED TO IGNORE ME.
Not happy, still could not use email.
I found the way,
the whole problem is simplified account setup in outlook which use your email adress as username.
and your useraname is the whole text before @, and nothing else, not whole email adress.
However simplified setup force you to put email adress on the first screen,
so you need to switch off simplified setup as described here:
and then setup your account in standard way. Done, works.
I am so happy for myself, not for TPG service.
