What op system? XP Vista?

Incoming mail comes via your POP3 settings.

Outgoing mail is SMTP - note that some ISPs (e.g. BT) prevents you sending emails out with any other email address then the one you are registered with BT.

Do you definitely mean incoming emails or simply no emails at all - in or out?

It's best to check out one channel at a time; incoming, then outgoing emails.

and if you tell us what your ISP is then someone in the forum who uses that will know what the setting should look like for that particular ISP.
