My wireless works fine. Two PC's hooked up. For whatever reason though..when we use Outlook Express to get our mail, we can't always retrieve or send our mail. We get errors and we can't seem to find the answer as to why this is happening
Anyone with a suggestion on how to correct?. We use Comcast and Belkin is our wireless router. Cusotmer service at both said it is a problem with Microsoft.

Probably not. The email could have failed or numerous reasons. I always CTRL+A and CTRL+C before I post or submit any form online because things don't always work as planned and you have no control over someone else's site.
You could have been clicking on a mailto link and didn't have a default email client set. This would give you a MAPI error.
It could be that Outlook Express was setup as your default mail client but it's not setup to use, so it couldn't open the default folders and your email failed for this reason.
If you use an application on your desktop, then set it to be the default email client. If not, and you only use web-based email, then copy/paste to your email client instead of clicking submit.
Websites should send server-based email and these issues would be eliminated. Also, using mailto, allows spammers to harvest email addresses on websites. Although it can be written to make it difficult, most people don't make the effort.
Click on the file named "Pop3uidl.dbx" with the right mouse button.
Select Delete from the menu.
Since Outlook Express has just lost even the rest memory of which mail it has already seen, expect all mail still on the server to be retrieve the next time you click Send/Recv. After that, mail retrieve should return to normal, however.
You can't really download Outlook Express as it is part of Windows XP. If it is not there, you can add it though the Add/Remove Programs option in the Control Panel. Select the Windows Components icon in the left-hand pane.
In Vista Outlook Express is replaced by Windows Mail, and in Windows 7 there is no email program, but you can download Windows Live Mail.
Suggest to make sure that Outlook Express is set up as your default email program (and not Outlook). To check this open Internet Explorer; select TOOLS, then Internet Options; Programs; and make sure Outlook Express shows as your E-mail client.
Hi, Most likely there is a email with a virus in one of
your outlook express folders. Download a 30 day trial of Kaspersky internet security and run a full scan on
your computer. Alternatively, you could try creating a new Identity
in outlook express, only problem is you wont be able to access your old emails.
But you can always switch back and forth. To do this Click on File – Identities
– Manage Identities. Here you can create a new one and configure your email
settings. Though this may work, this may only be a temporary solution. Hope this helps. Please rate your feedback! Thanks, VJ
