    I have a user with Outlook Express 6 on a Windows XP machine. She can not always send and receive email. She does not get an error message. Outlook 2000 works just fine, but she would rather use OE 6. Can view messages on the Bellsouth web email page but hitting the send/receive button in OE 6 will not retrieve the messages. It works fine sometimes, other times not. Running McAfee VirusScan with current definition files. Ran Spybot to clear out any potential problems. Updated all software at Windows update site. The POP3 and SMTP servers are correct. Six other computers in the same office work fine. They access the Internet through a Cayman 3220-H DSL router.

    When it is not working, try to ping the mail server and if you get a reponse, I'd try to repair OE.
