message gives a clue : Server error. Have you contacted your isp?
What os and outlook express version are you using and have you checked the settings?

  crantock's 16:13 13 Aug 2006

This happens when sending to any one (Gongoozler)
(jak_1) How do i check settings?
Sorry i'm a bit of a novice

Hi crantock's. This is a server error, so could well be a problem at your ISP. Is this a new account? You also say "P.C in a bad way" are there other problems?

Hi Gongoozler,

Sorry not replied Very busy. ISP say's all settings ok.
Other problems : V V V slow, always freezes when shutting down, had to remove 256 mem stick something wrong with the slot it goes
into??????? when closing down a program, program not responding window always appears. How do I check to see if there are any programs running in the background when there should'nt be ???????

Is that enough to start with .

Sorry but you did ask.

Thanks, Crantocks

" had to remove 256 mem stick something wrong with the slot it goes into"

Did you replace the memory in a different slot? If not I would suggest that you do this as it will enalbe the pc to run smoother/faster.

To check what programs are running hold down Ctrl+Alt+Delete keys, this will give you the Task Manager. From here you can see which programs are running under the Applications tab.

Was this a stick of memory you removed or a memory stick ( USB Flash drive ) , PCs are funny sometimes with things left in USB slots when booting or shutting down , also do you have Anti Virus and Anti Spyware software installed and up to date , if so have you scanned your PC with either or both ?

Hi Crantock's, you had to remove 256M stick of memory. I suspect that the motherboard might be faulty. The only time I've had this problem, I eventually had to replace the motherboard since when the computer has been completely stable. What motherboard do you have?

How do i find what type of motherboard i have?

Stick of memory (not USB flash)

Hi Crantock's, download, install and run Belarc Advisor, click here. This will tell you what motherboard you have as well as other useful information about your computer.
