Hi, Thoroughly check all your setting details, as in Tools, accounts, highlight your account and click on properties. Look for anything that may have changed eg. a dot missing, a space may have appeared in your name etc. Cheers, Bill

How do I check if my email is working?
To check if your email is working correctly. Create a new email message then enter your own email address in the To: Field
When you click Send, the email will be sent to the server, testing your outgoing email function. Then, when you click Send/Receive or Get Mail, the email should be downloaded back to your computer and appear in your inbox. Providing this works, your account is functioning correctly.
If you encounter any problems with this process you will need to check your email settings (select your email application click here for PC or click here for Mac ), and you may need to use the telnet instructions click here to check for a Mail Block click here
