E:mail problem

Hi folk some time no see :-)
Current ADSL
1 Does this make any sense to anyone, Out of the blue I’m getting no incoming e:mail from my normal e:mail address, even if I send myself an e:mail nothing comes back.


But in outlook retaining account 1 above, for the main connection IE default.
If I use tools and accounts, and recreate an additional account but no phone number, using my old dial up account details pop3 & SMTP and e:mail address.

Then send an e:mail to this old address, although its using the same default provider in 1 above, which in theory is not working for e:mail, this then sends me a reply. I would be grateful if someone who can understand my wording can also explain how this is happening.

BTW The internet connection is working OK, oh & I don’t have a narrow band backup modem, everything is either working or not working through the ADSL PCI card.
BTW. sorry if I don't respond to quick the e:mail address for this forum is the one that's not working.

That shouldn't in theory be able to do that should it, without a different telephone number to that of your ADSL.
I would have thought but not really sure, if the one especially the default account is not working, then neither should the other.

:-)That's following my line of thinking too.
The only phone number in there is the ADSL for which the main primary e:mail account is not working, but the secondary account to my old dial up is. Blows me out.
