My Outbox is dialling an unknown Hotmail account.

I have virus checked my computer using Norton which is kept completely up to date. I am currently using Incredimail which has two e-mail accounts set up, neither of which are Hotmail. When I hit "send & ReceivE",It has suddenly started trying to connect to a hotmail account which is unknown to me. I cannot send any mail out as I cannot get past the attempts to connect to Hotmail. The hotmail account isn't listed under any settings. Any ideas on how to solve this? It appears that Outlook express is connecting properly but not iNcredimail, as I cannot find the account or command to tell it to try connecting to Hotmail I cannot delete it.
PLEASE HELP before I go completely grey!

is there anything ie/ a unsent mail in your outbox folder?

not sure about incredimail but OE will keep any unsent message/s here and send it next time you click send/receive all.

there is an unsent message and the reason it is unsent is because when i clich send and receive it tries to connect to this unknown hotmail account. I will try the spyware check, but wouldn't that affect OE as well?

just delete the message in the outbox folder if you cant remember typing it.

Huggy you are an angel!! I don't understand it but it has worked! I'm not sure why an outgoing mail would connect like that and I will do the spybot thing to be sure-Thank-you ever so much prob. solved!!
Cheers!
