I use outlook expreess 6 and windows xp when I try to open it reports no server although internet explorer ok. have checked tools accounts and added and removed several times but no result. I have a machine with windows 98 networked and this finds e-mail no problem but when I try to subscribe to news groups reports no server. Have checked configuration on both computers exactly the same. Any ideas would be much appreciated as I am almost at the reformat stage.
If your ISP is NTL dial-up it is an issue that has been on going for a couple of weeks exactly as you have described. I had an e-mail yesterday from NTL claiming the have fixed the problem (basically their mail server was overloaded and at times mail was inaccessible.)
