When I click on "Send/Receive" my internet connection turns off. Only happened the last couple of days and I haven't installed anything at all or done anything differently than I normally do. It isn't happening all the time but seems to be getting to be a more frequent happening. ..Bingalau..

Sometimes OE sets accounts to collect mail through a particular connection but if you set it to collect through any then it should be ok.

Diodorus Siculus. I think I may have cracked it, Just been looking through all the settings again and found that my default was set for my ISP.

I will tick the resolved button and if I need to, I will have to start asking for help again later. ..Bingalau..
