A friend is running Windows XP and Outlook Express and the PC has started sending e-mails but not receiving. Anyone got any ideas.
Thanks

Has the friend got any anti-virus program newly installed? It may be trying to check mail and messing up the settings.

Any spam catcher installed?

Is the pop3 server correctly specified / password correct?

I think she said she has just installed some Anti-Spyware programme, but I don't know which one. Could that be the problem? Also, where are the settings for the pop3 server found?

Is the box "include this account when recieving mail or synchronising" ticked.

POP3 settings

mail

From there you should get it.

Antispyware shouldn't affect email , does your friend get any error messages from Outlook Express?
I would disable any email scanning, if the antivirus software is any use at all it will flag a virus if a suspect email is opened anyway, and most people know not to open attachments from unlikely sources.
