Help please.This has been happening for 36 hours and naturally each time I switch on the incoming emails increase. Before I can read the latest ones, I have to wait for the repeated ones to arrive. The novelty soon wore off. They also start to come through a second or third time. I use Outlook Express on XP.
Thank you MAJ - My ISP is Orange. Thanks Sea Urchin - the item was not ticked. I've noticed a change. When OE attempts to download my mails an error comes up worded 'An attempt to allocate memory failed. The system is out of memory' Error No 0x*007000E. I tries agin shortly after.
MAJ, I logged onto the Orange site and did as you advised. I also clicked tools/options/general in OE and found that OE had somehow lost it's status as Default Mail Handler ?? Sorted that and touch wood things seem rectified. Not as complicated a cure as I expected. Thanks. Thanks to Sea Urchin also. fadviser
