    go to start, then control panel, then add/remove programs, and UNINSTALL outlook!!!

    that will def get rid of your problem!

    seriously though, do yourself a massive favour and get rid of it. Get another program. Theres loads better out there. If u insist of using outlook u might as well download some viruses or throw ur pc in the bin
    Shut that cuntís mouth or Iíll come over there and fuckstart her head.

    mate , the best way to get a virus / trojan/ worm is to use outlook express,

    if ya wanna check you isp mail , divert it to a hotmail service, and check all your mail via hotmail and stop downloading all the crap outlook brings with it

    go to your isp account and divert all mail to a hotmail account

    OE is telling you that it can&#39;t connect to a server called smpt.freeserve.co.uk
    This could be for several reasons but the most likely one is that the server&#39;s name is smtp.freeserve.co.uk.
    Easy mistake to make.

    No, people should use what they want to or are comfortable using. OE is much more useful than Hotmail for people on pay-per-call dialup as you don&#39;t need to be online to read mail, just to get them.
    If they&#39;re going to use OE though, they&#39;ve got to change it&#39;s settings to increase security.

    Chewie, Thanks for your suggestion, but i tried that and it&#39;s still exactly the same.

    Delphin, I dont get any problems with OE mate, but on the few occasions i have been on hotmail, i was having JUNK MAIL HITTING ME FROM LEFT, RIGHT, AND CENTRE.
