Who are you using as your ISP.

Some like Virgin have upgraded their outlook software to make it more secure, and you have to change a few settings to make it work.

EG. In the User name box (page 1) you need to enter your full E mail address and tick the bottom box (include sync)

Page 2 you need to tick the bottom box 'My server requires authorization'

Pages 3 & 4 no change

Page 5 Change outgoing mail to 465 :Incoming to 995 and tick the 2 top boxes.

Other iSP's may be different.

Open Outlook Express | click on 'Tools' | click on 'Accounts' | on the 'Mail' tab, click on the Account so that it is highlighted | click on 'Properties' on the left |

These are the settings you need Email settings for addresses ending in @ntlworld.com
