When I try to forward or reply to messages in Outlook Express, I get an error message that says The connection has been unexpectedly terminated and the message doesn't go out. I can send new messages even though after they have been sent, I still get the same error message. What do you think is the problem? :thumbsup:

It may be in the way OE is configured.
Have a look at How To Configure Outlook Express 6, and scroll down to 'Manual steps to add and to configure a new Internet e-mail account'.

Also see How To Set Up Outlook Express.

I tried to above articles, but they didn't help. It seems to be set up correctly. Any other suggestions? Everything seems to work, except forwarding and replying. Although after sending a new message, I get that error message, but it goes out just the same, the replies and forwards do not.

To determine whether or not its OE that is causing the error, try a different email client such as Outlook or Thunderbird to see if the error still happens. If neither of those is installed on your computer, download Thunderbird from the link below, install it, allow it to import your mail settings, & then try to forward or reply to your messages using it instead.

Download Thunderbird

I installed Thunderbird and tried to forward a message, but the same thing happened. So what else could be wrong? I double checked all the settings with my isp and everything seems to be set up right.

If you have XP2 and are using a third party firewall, try stopping your third party firewall from running while disconnected from the internet. Start the Windows firewall. Then try forwarding an email.
If the firewall is not the problem, I would kill spam filters, antivirus to test if one is causing the problem.

I can't send any messages now. It used to be that I just couldn't forward or reply. Now all I can do is receive.
I tried shutting off the fire wall and I don't have any spam filter, it still doesn't work.

Suggest you post a Hijack This log in the appropriate forum by following the directions in the link below. That will eliminate the possibility that your problem is caused my malware.

You may also want to repair Outlook Express. The instructions are in the link below.

More info on OE and how to archive your saved messages before attempting the repair.

Since you are experiencing the problem in both Thunderbird and OE I would suggest checking for malware first.
