outlook express sending /not receiving

  User-271645 15:00 01 Oct 2003

First thanks for all recent help but now
I use e mail ending in netscape.co.uk ,windows 98se
I have configured at last outlook express to send mail and use very useful msgtag , mail goes ok but the msgtag receipt is sent to netscape mail and so is all incoming mail ,nothing comes to outlook express even though it is configured as my default mail handler,nad writes and sends perfectly.
How can I solve this?

What are your POP and SMTP settings that you have entered into Outlook Express?

Even though Outlook has been selected as your default...have you entered all the correct settings, like name, password, pop, smtp...all the things in TOOLS - ACCOUNTS ect?

Clutching st straws here - in OE Tools > accounts properties> is the reply address set as your Freeserve account( assuming that is your default account)?

well the reply address is set the same as the outgoing address , is this incorrect? Although i use freeserve as isp i never use the email address they gave me .
