Hello,
My wife just got a new computer running XP Home Edition. I installed MS Office 2000 on it. I then set up an account for her AT&T email. Each time I try to get her email it says there was a tcp/ip problem with the server. So I can't send or receive. Yet when I do this EXACT same thing with Outlook Express on her computer it works.

Here are some other facts you may need to know:
1. My wife's new computer is hooked into our wireless network (linksys). I can surf the net fine. I just can't get or receive mail with Outlook 2000.

2. Other computers on the wireless network fun 2000 Professional and Win 98 SE. I sort of doubt this is the issue but I'd rather give you too much info than not enough.

Thanks in advance,
Don

Well we're making progress DS. I deleted the account and reentered everything. Believe it or not Outlook 2000 sent out an email and then retrieved it. But now it constantly asks me for my password. I did a search on the entire harddrive looking for .pwl files and none were found.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Don

Don....

Thats good to know I'm really glad it's all working for you.
I really appreciate your posting back in here including the link for the password problem... it's another one of those things that's come up before and I could never find the right answer.

That MS link is a keeper :D

Thank You,

DS

It takes me there just fine when I click on it.

OL2000: (IMO) Your Password Is Not Retained in Windows 2000 or Windows XP
The information in this article applies to:
Microsoft Outlook 2000


If you're talking about the "..." area that's missing replacing the "t.aspx?scid=" portion of the URL it does that in here ...why? I know not, but it works all the same. :)
