Outlook 2007

This morning Microsoft downloaded several updates and after the requested restart. Outlook 2007 will not let me access my mail account. I have checked all the account settings which are correct but all it keeps saying is 'Cannot connect to the server' any idea would be appreciated.

Sorry Playmofire our threads must have crossed. I am with BT. However I can get them through BT yahoo but not through outlook. I think it must be something to do with the latest updates as one of them was a security update for Outlook 2007

I think you may find that the BT server is down, I'm having the same problem this morning.
Leave it until after lunch.

Thanks rawprawn I'll leave it for a while. Just seemed a bit of a coincidence after the updates. I can however connect through my phone where I received your reply to my discussion thread.

One other thing - System restore doesn't rectify the problem

No problem here in receiving BT messages, (using Outlook 2003).

Mine is now working OK

Many thanks for the responses. Mine is now working OK. It just seems strange that I could access the server from my phone.
Sea Urchin - I live about 14 miles from Easingwold so that may have been the problem

Thanks for the info rawprawn and seaurchin. I live near to Easingwold and so this may well have been the problem, although like mike40 I thought the latest updates might be the problem. I was out all day from 10.00, but when I got this evening, all worked OK.
