Hi, i have recently started up our old "dinosaur" computer that my parents got in 2003(i think), its a Dell desktop running windows XP. I had started it up to check an old email account for an email that i sent to it to reset a password on another online account(not an email account) so i could switch the email address to a more accessible one on my computer. But when i finally got outlook up and into the inbox i noticed that the email was not there. So i went and had another password reset email sent but still nothing. So i tested if it could receive any email's by sending an email from my hotmail account to it, still nothing and i got an immediate reply from hotmail saying that the email failed to send. So i continued to test the old email account and tried sending an email from it to my hotmail account and it worked no problem. So whats going on here? The last email the account received was from about a week ago, but that was just the monthly newsletter from the ISP. Please help, i have looked all over the internet to find a solution and this site seemed to come up alot but nothing that i found helped my specific situation....
