Please can somone HELP ! I can send e-mail via Outlook but can no longer receive it. I belive it is because one of my darling teenagers(!) has downloaded, but not installed, MSN Explorer. I have been to the MSN site, as recommended
by Microsoft but cannot find anywhere on the site on how to rectify this. Hope that someone can please help me !

Downloading a program and not installing can't cause any problems. IF they had installed then it might the cause but not if it was just downloaded.

Do you mean Outlook or Outlook Express? And which version?

Have you checked the information in your e-mail account settings?

As VoG™ asks check your account settings. Incoming email should read for instance

Thanks for your' prompt responses.

Forgive me, for I am a complete novice at this. When searching for Msn Explorer, I can find it in the "find files" facility but don't know how else to go about it.

How do I check the infornation in my e-mail account settings ?

I have Outlook 97 version and Outlook express. Outlook Express seems to be ok. I also have Windows 98.

In Outlook 97 go to Tools>Services, highlight your ISP (i.e. Freeserve or NTLworld) then click Properties>Servers your incoming server should begin "pop.". When you signed up with your ISP they would have given you the server names but if you can't find it, ring their helpline.

MSN Messenger does indeed appear to be the culprit click here

It obviously must have been installed, not just downloaded.

Thank you VoG but that is where I have already been and all following all their instructions just leads to dead ends. Seems they know about the probelm but trying to find out how to fix it is impossible.
