Are you getting any error messages?
Thank you for the response
I kept messing with the settings till it now works OK
I have been trying to find an Email program that worked similarily to the email that came with windowsXP - this eMclient comes as close as any of the dozen or more that I have tried - a few little quirks that I will probably get used to, but at least I can manage with it - probably the main thing I miss is not being able to manage the mail folders as easily as with outlook express
again thank yu
