    This message just means that your computer can't talk to the mail server.

    Has this ever worked?

    There are a few possible reasons for this
    1. You are not connected to the Internet, this is unlikely as you can post on Woody's Lounge
    2. You have set up your email wrong, check the instructions you received from your ISP
    3. There is a problem with the mail server, you should contact your ISP to check whether this is a problem at their end.
    for more information have a look at MSKB article 813514

    Welcome to the Lounge!

    This problem can have several causes. Could you tell us
    • Which version of Windows you're using (Windows XP, Windows Vista, ...)
    • Which e-mail program you're trying to use (Outlook Express, Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail)
    • Which firewall you're using
    Thanks in advance.

    If this computer was given to you all set up, it probably has the email settings for it's former user on it, not yours.
    As Stuart mentioned, I would check with your ISP ( Internet Service Provider ) and have them step you through setting up emails for YOUR use.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Please double check that you have correctly entered the e-mail account settings in Tools | Accounts...

    It might be best to call your ISP's help desk and ask them to assist you - they should know the specific settings needed to connect to their e-mail servers.
