E-Mails... will not download suddenly

  russmini 21:29 24 Apr 2005

Suddenly i seem to be un-able to download my e-mails in outlook express, it seems o connect and as soon as it does start to download a pop up comes up with user name and password, (filled out correctly), pressing enter does the same, just one vicous circle. If i go to wanadoo home page and log into my e-mails there no probs, but i prefer outlook express.

This has been tried on 98se and now on xp. Both bang up to date.

All the usual spyware, virus etc progs all up and running fine.

Any help / ideas

Could well be theISP having problems.

Could be but i doubt it, this has been going on for nearly 1 week !

Check in blocked senders. I had OE crash and could no longer download. My own address was blocked when I looked after spending ages changing settings around.

How to reinstall or repair Internet Explorer and Outlook Express in Windows XP

Sorry, should have said couldn't send or receive so check mail rules.

Blocked sender, e-mail rules all ok.

Re-install, doubtfull, this is on 2 different comps on 2 different os.

Could it be something to do with my account ?
All seems ok there though when i check, everything is as it should be.

Any more ideas ?

Which ISP?

How sure are you that your User Name is entered in the correct format? Different ISPs have slightly different formats.

For instance, some need [email protected]* others may need only username. I know of one (in Spain) that uses username$ISP.net

* or .co.uk, or whatever your ISP needs.

I had same problem with NTL recently but now OK it was trouble at the server.

My daughter had the same problem with her emails. Nothing we tried made any difference until I got her to go onto the Wanadoo webpage and change her password. Believe it or not, that worked. Hope it works for you too.
