E-Mail problems

  freaky 15:50 08 Apr 08

I have a LAN network of two PC's, use Outlook Express V6.0, XP (SP2)and two e-mail addresses one for personal use and the other for business mail. I am using NTL as my ISP.

Recently I have had problems with my business e-mail, the other one is OK.

I can send e-mails but they are not received,and I don't get any error messages ! Also e-mails sent to me are not being received.

Yesterday I sent an e-mail to myself using the business address on this PC and it arrived OK.

Does anybody know what could be the cause ?

Is your business address a domain name or is it a variation of your personal email address?

It's one I got from NTL a few years ago, and the password is a variation of my personal address i.e. H02......as opposed to H01.....

Do you have anti-virus /anti-spyware that monitors email in and out?
If so it might be worth disabling then trying a send.

Thanks for the replies. In answer to Ditch999.....yes, after the @ they are the same.

As regards Spam Filters or A/V, I don't think that could be the cause.

I did contact NTL last week and an 'Indian Gentlemen' said the fault was due to a particular Server and it would be repaired on 6th April but evidently not done yet !

I will be back on line at 18.30 so please accept my apologies for any delays in replying.

I'm back.

I just sent an email using my Business Address to my Personal Address and it arrived OK.

When I sent another using my Personal Address to Business Address it did not arrive !!!

Spoke to NTL this morning and the problem was due to the Account Name for the Business e-mail was incorrect. It should have been the characters before the @ of the Business e-mail address.

As a result I had 110 e-mails arrive!!!
