I have been reading some of the other forums, it does seem to be a common problem, ranging from disabling firewalls or antivirus progams (definitely not recommended) to changing the LAN settings all seem without a solution. There was one that seemed to suggest re-entering the accounts which seemed to cure it, worth a try.

i have an msn address and this does not work with OE.if you also have an msn addy then this may be the cause.a hotmail addy should work ok but i havnt tried it.

OE doesnt support hotmail @ msn addresses.sign up for a @ hotmail one and it will work ok.
