sound like your user name and or paswors are not correct also is th internet provider a uk based as some bar international dial up also check your modem setup is correct the settings will be on the help file on the isp set up cd

the password and user name are correct, and the isp is in spain which is where i am connecting, this has to be something to do with the protocols,
but i dont know what i should use.

do you have any pop-up stopper software on your computer, as this might be affecting your isp & Home page being loaded.

Also clear out your cookies & temp files.

And check your Firewall, make sure it is not preventing your download from isp.

i tried disabeling some of the lan connections, and disabled the firewall, it then let me see pages and send e-mail.

thanks for your help

Might be worth reading up about Internet Explorer's Security configuration:

Also is the firewall set to allow access to IE, OE etc?

See now you are using Outlook - it's more of a business orientated e-mail program than the simple, but straightforward OE approach.
