email connecting

  mr gee 19:52 09 Mar 2005

all of a sudden when I try to send or receive e-mails using outlook express I get the message connecting to server --connected receiving (or sending) mail then mail sent Why when I am on broadband and perminatly connected as it suddenly started doing this ,,up to a couple of days ago it just sent and received e-mails straight away. I have checked all the settings to no avail.
I am using X P home with a Zoom moden and Netgear Router (which I have had for ages ) and re-set them.
I know its only a little problem but the thing is driving me crackers

Help please before this old fella tears the 3 remaining hairs out
