Outlook Express will not work.

While I am away at a holiday caravan in Somerset I need to pick up my E-Mails so I tried various gadgets such as Vodafone 3G which I dumped when I found an enormous bill from I know not where. I then tried a Wi-Fi gadget but having to go and sit outside MacDonald’s was doing my waste line no good so I then tried O2 3G but I found that was not a lot of good either and worse of all it messed up my Wi-Fi capability so last night I dumped it using the Remove facility.

This morning I found that I can’t open my E-Mail OE and a message came up.

Outlook Express
Some errors occurred while processing the requested tasks. Please review the list of errors below for more details.

Can you help?

I think that it may be BT problem looking at other threads.

Why not try accessing your emails from mail2web - you just need your address and password

Go to mail2web.com

I received the following this morning that explains it all.
Urgent – emails you send from non–BT Yahoo! Mail addresses via our SMTP servers may be blocked
Dear Customer,
You've received an Error 553 message because we've upgraded your BT Yahoo! Mail security to help prevent identity fraud and spam.
These enhancements will help protect you from 'spoofing' – when people use alternate addresses to disguise an email's real sender, possibly to commit fraud.
