    Hi

    Using a netbook as well as a laptop, email from laptop to netbook works fine except when sending using one particular outgoing account. Emails using this account simply do not arrive, using a secondary account they arrive.

    Both devices use XP and OE6. Used to work OK.

    The user tried to block email from a friend who has had her OE hijacked, but (touchpad too sensitive :() may have blocked her own contact ID in the address book on the receiving laptop!!! I guess this is the problem, but how can I first check, and then repair, please?

    All suggestions welcome

    Hi, just answering my own question -
    In OE go to tools, message rules, select tab of blocked accounts, highlight the one to be unblocked, click remove, and magically the contact is restored.
    Here is the link to the site which gave me the answer -

    I love the internet!
