Outlook Express or Outlook (which version)? Do you have Norton installed?

I use Outlook 2003, sorry my mistake. No I do not have Norton, I use Windows firewall, defender.

I have just tried to use the Virgin webmail who my account is with and I cannot access it there, it may be that Virgin has the problem and not me.

If the email accounts you are trying to access via Outlook Express are with virgin.net, then there's probably nothing wrong with your OE. There seems to be a problem currently with virgin.net's servers (not for the first time!). See this thread click here
and keep an eye on the Virgin service-status webpage
