Question about Microsoft Outlook Express
I have been using outlook express with my hotmail account for many years and pay the extra membership fee yearly. As of last night i have been getting the following error.......
i create an email and send the mail (even if its to my self) and the mail goes into my outbox. when i click send all i get the prgress bar and it gets to the end then says sending failed. The mail remains in my outbox. if i chek my inbox i have recieved the mail i just set which was ment to have failed. i ave been told by my family and friends that they have recieved the same email 10 times or more all sent 15 mins appart (which is my check mail setting)
why isn't the mail clearing the outbox once sent and how can i fix this??
This is happening on 2 computers running the same setup of outlook express 6 on XP service pack 3, on a vista system using outlook its fine and my iphone using mbox is also fine
I've had the same problem, and my way to fix it was to turn of the firewall and check if it worked, and it did.
When I was sure that the firewall was my problem, I gave accsess to Outlook Express manually through my firewall.
I can probably help you with that to, but then I have to know what firewall/anti virus program you use (if you got one at all?)
