Sending but not recieving e-mail

  Dirty Dick 17:23 15 Nov 2006

Just found a problem where I can send but not receive e-mail. A dailogue box pops up prompting me to enter my user id and password. I have not made any changes, and was receiving e-mial up to about 2 hours ago. I am running XP pro nad using Outlook as my mail client.
Any ideas?

But I'm using (and have been for some time) OUTLOOK.

In Tools - Accounts for the account you are using check that Remember Password is ticked.

Check/re-enter account details and password.

Which ISP? Some (Orange for one) seem to have had server problems today.

Fruit Bat's fix also applies to Outlook.

Have you checked your ISP's status Page to see if there is a problem with e-mail?

You won't believe it, but its suddenly corrected itself.

I have checked your details and they are all entered correctly.

I'm with BTYAHOO, nad I did manage to go into my account via the web browser.

Thanks for everyone's help
