I am having a problem with my email.

I have two PC's networked together.

I have set up two email accounts in outlook express.

I can receive email on one account but not on the other?

I have checked and double checked but everything is set up properly.

One account sends and receives mail ok, but when I try to send and relieve with the other account I keep getting socket error messages.

Any ideas good people?

Thank you

Socket error messages often happen when you are trying to send over the incorrect smtp server. Make sure the smtp is set up for your ISP correctly it should be the same for both accounts, have a look at the smtp setup in the working one and make sure it's the same in the other.
