Hi sorry for late responce. I changed my google password as i thought i may be entering a different one & tried again. This time the mail doesnt send and just remains in the outbox & i get a box to click 'ok' on but it disapears & comes straight back. Here it is. click here

Thanks

I changed my google password

Did you logon to google with your old/existing password and then change your password or did you just change it in Outlook Express?

Following on from Lotvic's post, if you did change your password via the Google website, then in the Outlook Express "Logon" box you need to delete the password that's already there then enter your new one and press OK.

If you've already done that then press "Cancel" and post a screenshot of the error window that should appear.
