I cannot send emails from microsoft outlook. they just stay in the outbox. I notice if I click onto outlook, avast pops up and seems to be doing something to stop outlook working. I can get into outlook but thats it, it will not send messages.
any ideas of how to fix the problem please? I have HP bog standard lappy running vista.
I seem to be able to receive messages from Outlook when I am in the office to my hotmail account - so I suppose the answer is yes, I can receive them. Not sure how I check my outlook settings?? Sorry. I have all the free stuff as security on my pc - spywareblaster, ccrapcleaner, spybot, winpatrol, and of course avat. I think my firewall is that which came with Vista and have not put on any other firewall.
