Outlook Express regularly corrupting

  dracula 23:15 22 Jan 2007

since recently changing ISP to Orange I keep getting an error when accessing Outlook Express- after being asked to enter password and then being told that the server could not be found.
If I remove through "add / remove windows components" and then add back in it works perfectly for a while!
Does this mean that the disc is corrupt?
Can this be rectified using the installation disc?

Has OE been configured to use your new email address? Look in Tools/Accounts for old accounts.

Sorry for the delay I've been on hols. Everything properly set up.Seems to happen more if I am not already on web and just want to check mail.

Are you using any kind of spam/email scanning facility provided by an antivirus or internet security package?

You don't have to put up with the inconvenience - why not try thunderbird mailer? - free from the makers of FireFox click here
