I have recently installed sbcglobal dsl on my computer. I do not like using yahoo mail, so I am using Outlook Express. It worked okay for a while, but the tech from microsoft had me change setting to get it to work. Now it will not work on the desktop or the notebook.

Any suggestions!

Thanks,

Hi swtexas70,

Can you be more specific about what isn't working in Outlook Express and which settings were changed?

The individual from Outlook Express had me change the settings in the accounts section of outlook. We then deleted the two accounts, one for the desktop and one for the laptop, and then added new ones to the account. First, a pop box would appear and ask for a user id and the password, both of which were in the box. When they were re-entered and the okay way clicked, it would appear again. Now, that issues seems to be addressed. The next situation happened when the "send/receive" was clicked. Then a box would eventually appear saying that the POP3 server had timed out and what did I want to do. Now, even that does not appear. When going to Yahoo, which is also supposed to be handling my mail in the background for me to be able to read while on the road, it is not appearing there.

If this was happening only on one of the computers, it would indicated to me that something was wrong with the program. However, since both of the computers are doing the same thing, I really believe that the guy from Outlook had me do something completely wrong.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

Go through the instructions for How to Configure Outlook Express and check that your settings are correct.
