Should be

Space between http and : and another between **. and asp

Should work when you take out the spaces !!

The shortcuts don't work. Do you think I should try re-installing?

I suspect that some of your account settings update OE have been corrupted. In OE, go to <Tools><Accounts> and select the <Mail> tab. Select your account and work through all the settings - if necessary compare with what your ISP web site advises. The error occurs when it is looking for <pop3.blueyonder.co.uk> so suspect that this is wrong - check what should be wherever you find this.

nothing happened. It has no virus. I'll see if JoeC's shortcuts work this time.

Have you spoken to your ISP - they may be able to identify your problem from the provided report.

Have you got a firewall? Which one and which AV are you running..
