Hi, I Have just gone over to Windows XP SP2 with Broadband and I have Outlook Express 6 on my computer.
I am not able to send e mails for some reason although they are being rec eived. When I send the computer tells me it cannot connect to my ISP. I have tried everthing I can think of but it seems to be that Outlook Express is trying a dial up instead of Broadband. I am very new to this an cannot see what is wrong. Can anyone help please
:thumbsup: :flowers:

sounds like either:
1. your address is incorrect for your pop server, in this case, you must contact your ISP and get the correct settings, i can tell you where they are, but when you call, it is just as well you go through all your email settings. here is where you change it
in outlook express:tools>accounts>mail>select the email you want to edit>properties>servers
2.u say it keeps trying to access dial up? verify it here please:
in OE, >tools>options>connections>de-select "hang up after sending and receiving">change>connections>there is 3 options here about dial up, select "never dial a connection"

lemme know if this helps.
