Re: Can't send or reply to emails now.



Check for any discrepancies in your account settings.

How To Set Up Outlook Express to Use Your BellSouth E-mail Account:

E-mail scanning can also cause this type of problem.

Turn off e-mail scanning in your anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer of protection that eats up CPUs, slows down sending and receiving, and causes a multitude of problems such as time-outs, account setting changes and has even been responsible for loss of messages. Your up-to-date A/V program will continue to protect you sufficiently. For more, see:

Note that for some AV programs, it may be necessary to uninstall the program and reinstall in Custom Mode and uncheck e-mail scanning when the option arises.
