    Happily using Freeserve Anytime. Outlook Express performing fine. Loaded Freeserve Broadband. Web O.K. Now cannot send mail from Outlook Express.
    Freeserve says that O. E. 6 sometimes has problems with Freeserve Broadband. Suggested I downloaded O.E.6 and replaced with O.E.5. Not possible as O.E.5 is no longer available for Windows 98 (2).
    I have now uninstalled Broadband and am back to where I was but mail problem still exists.

    1. How do I remove 'Go In Direct', XXXSERVER, PRPI, downloads_ly from my diall up box leaving freeserve?

    2. All outgoing mail shows error as:
    Subject 'test'
    Account 'pop.freeserve.net'
    Server SMTP
    Protocol SMTP, Port 25, Secure (SSL)
    No, Error No 0x800CCC0B

    Under Accounts I have pop.freeserve. com, mail, dial up freeserve, etc. and pop. freeserve.net mail (default) any available.

    Under Servers Incomoming mail is ;POP3' but this is highlighted in blue and flashing and inaccessible, whilst the incoming and outgoing mail box addresses are correct but also inaccessible.

    How do I overcome this problem and get to send my mail as I did before installing Broadband.

    When you open Outlook, are you able to send or receive from any of these 3 accounts?

    Also look in Outlook. Tools/accounts/mail tab. Highlight the mail default account. Click on properties/server tab and make certain the settings -- POP3, SMTP, account name and password are correct (your ISP will have the POP3 and STMP server addresses).

    Apply/ok and reboot if prompted.

    If it works; remove the other 2 accounts if you don't use them.
