    if your internet is running okay i would really take another look at your POP3 and SMTP or IAMP settings. If those are configured wrong that would be why you are not able to send and recieve email. Either that or you can try using the repair feature in MS office.

    What happens when you Test Account Settings at the screen were you configure the e-mail accounts.

    I have one system here running office 2003 with vista enterprise. No problems at all.

    Do you have all updates including service packs for both office and vista installed?

    Are you using a router and if so have you removed the router and checked to see how it works?

    Are you using windows firewall or a third party firewall?

    yes i tried all of that, the problem is the outlook 2003 is not stable i mean sometimes it works very quickly and sometimes it doesnot, i reinstalled it 2 times but no use.

    then i installed outlook 2007 and everything went well and normal, i still don't know what is the problem but at least i can continue my work with outlook 2007 till something pops up on the surface.

    thanks for help

    I have been using Outlook 2003 since I got a Beta copy and have NOT had any issues with it. That said, I have had issue with my email providers, the servers are sometime JUST not working and are down from time to time.

    It would help if you were to post the error message that you are getting.

    kombat75 and mrtallguy what ISP are you using; if both the same then maybe the problem is not on your end.

    i don't think the problem is with my ISP because i have the same email account running on another computer with outlook 2003 but with XP and everything is stable.
    so the only change i have is windows vista......
