Hi All, need your help again.
INTERNET EXPLORER, works fine, but now i can`t send or receive emails, I use Mail Washer,first but get the same result, in Outlook Express, i receive this message :
The connection to the server has failed. Account: '', Server: '', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E
I also use Zone Alarm, and Norton A/V have tried disableing each, and then both ( i know, I know )
but to no avail.
Hope you can help me.
Many thanks.
