Can anyone please help me sort out my outlook problems. The story so far, reinstalled windows xp on my computer yesterday have been trying since then to set up my e-mail account, (blueyonder.co.uk)filled in all the details as I think they should be but somethings not right. I've tried to send myself an email as a check but I'm not recieving it. If anymore info required just ask. Thanks for any help in advance.

Thanks for the quick reply VoG but that instruction is for outlook express, I was using outlook before yesterday, I would like to stick with it if possible

It erroneously mentions OE but it is for Outlook 2000.

VoG if you click on "Tools" in Outlook it is a different set of pages to go through the set up procedure, than it is if you click on "Tools" in Outlook Express. My problem is I want to set up "Outlook", not "Outlook Express" Thanks for taking the time to help me, can you offer any more suggestions.

Are you using Outlook 2007 because the link that VoG™ gave is for Outlook. The 2007 version looks slightly different but the settings are the same.
Click on Tools Account settings. It will be a POP account.
