Everytime I open my outlook express an error message comes up saying:
The host 'POP.virgin.net' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'pop.virgin.net', Server: 'POP.virgin.net', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D

and underneath is this one:
The host 'SMTP.virgin.net' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'pop.virgin.net', Server: 'SMTP.virgin.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D

Open OE and click Tools - Accounts. Under the Mail tab select the Virgin account and click Properties. Select the Servers tab and change Incoming(POP3) and Outgoing(SMTP) addresses to mail.virgin.net

pop.virgin.net and smtp.virgin.net are not valid Virgin servers. Virgin mail servers are mail.virgin.net
