No, I'm not on a network I'm stand alone. it seems to be giving me problems in Outlook as well , when I picked up the PCA reply email Word wouln't open the link to take me to this page. I will keep playing with the preferences to see if I can get it working.
I'm on NTL Home broadband, so there is no dial-up. I just ping the bbc to check if the connection is up or down, if I am having problems. If you are on dial-up, you might have to go online with BT-click or whatever first. I can't remember.
Setting up an email account should be easy. File, Import, Mail, then choose your program. That should import your account settings and messages.
Ok, I have got it online, but the only way I could do it was by dialling up with IE first then go with Opera. I think I can solve the email problem but I can't figure out why it won't dial up on it's own. It is telling me that pop3 & Smtp are disconnected, & I can't see where to put it right in preferences. I wonder if I had a bad installation for some reason, I thought it would seek out it's own connections.I have allowed it in my firewall.
Thanks for your help guys, I have spent the last all afternoon playing around with it & getting nowhere except creating other problems. I have decided to uninstall it on the basis that IE works perfectly well for me with no problems, so if it aint broke don't fix it.
