I wonder if any one can help me please I'm unable to receive any e-mail's in to Outlook Express, I use this programme on a daily basis

The error message states "The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'mail.btinternet.com', Server: 'mail.btinternet.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E"

My internet connection is functioning as normal and I can access my mail if I go directly to BT Yahoo.

How do I rectify this, how has it happened and does the fault lay with BT or Microsoft

Thanks for your reply

I decided to turn the computer off in the hope that when I turned it back on Outlook Express might have righted it's self and fortunately it has, those microsoft instructions look mighty complicated to me!

Many thanks for your help it's very much appreciated
