Can't send mail in Outlook Express

  [DELETED] 08:44 05 Apr 2006

Yesterday I re-instaled windows messenger to get my Fax back. Now for some reason I can not send any mails through O/E, and Mail Washer will not connect to my Server. I get messages telling me my Server has dropped the connection, but I can still send Mail with my main email program Yahoo.
Outlook Express is used as a pop mail access for two different email programs.
Where do I go now?

In OE:




and under the properties, check that you have the correct pop3 / smtp servers for your mail provider.

Have done this, everything is normal and I have not changed any of the settings for my mail. This has only gone amiss since re-installing Windows Messenger yesterday.
Mail Washer and O/E will not connect to the Server to receive mail

it sounds to me that there is definately something different in your connection settings, the fact yahoo works is not really relevant as it does not send from your mail settings whereas mailwasher and oe use your settings, if all settings are ok after a rigorous check i would suggest delete and reinstall mail account and reset mailwasher.

Problem resolved, I disabled Windows Messenger completly and everything is back to normal.
This is the second time this B#**dy program has mucked up my PC, never again.
