Unable to send/receive all emails-why?

  Kooji 08:24 01 Sep 2010

Hi all,

I have recently changed my laptop which is now running Windows 7 and since then I have one email contact which when I send mail to it doesn't get through. However last night I sent an attachment of holiday pics and they all got through fine. Any ideas why this intermittent problem has cropped up recently and what I can do to rectify it?

It happens sometimes if there are ISP server problems.

If it is all working okay now then it can't be your settings on your pc.

Many thanks for your response, It would seem that if this problem rights itself then it could have been an ISP server problem? It seems odd that I've only had problems with that one email contact so I'll flag this up as resolved for now.

Many Thanks

If you sent them okay and they appeared in your Sent folder then I would say that the problem was at the other end or one of the servers in between on the way to the recipient.

Servers do sometimes 'have a hiccup'
(Yahoo and Orange seem to have them regularly as well as others)
