email in XP not working

  Newuser2 17:17 15 Jul 2004

I can't get outlook express to send or recieve any emails. The save passwork button is greyed out. I have shut PC cillin 2002 down but it makes no differance, all I get is that outlook express is authorizing and then a time out message.
I can send and recieve via Blueyonders web mail.
Just not outlook express.

One favourite is to open O/express click on tools,click on accounts and delete you email account then click on new and re install it this often does the trick! and it is one of the first suggestings from most ISP support desks.

hillybilly Your advice worked.
It seems that windows assumes a lot of things that are not quite right, such as my user name etc. I corrected it all and all is well.
Many thanks.
