    OE won't send or receive (oe6)

    Sitting unattended, OE just stopped receiving mail.
    If I hit send/receive, it immediately says there is no new mail.
    By going to Earthlink's Webmail, I see that there is plenty of mail on the server.
    Earthlink's Mumbai office checked out my settings, and they were all correct.
    Turning off Norton doesn't help.
    If I try to send, I get a message "The message could not be sent. An error has occurred." No error number.
    I reinstalled OE from the Windows CD-ROM. That didn't help.
    I bought Eudora, used the same settings, and it can send and receive with no problem.
    But I prefer to use OE, so I'd like to fix the problem.

    Harvey, If you are SURE your settings are correct for OE and your ISP assures you that their end is working OK, then I would go for a Clean Install of OE. You say you reinstalled OE from the Windows CD?
    I don't recall ever seeing that option to reinstall JUST OE from the CD.

    Check out this link to reinstall OE from the Elder Geeks website. It suggests two methods to attempt a repair but I would opt for method TWO for a reinstall. It does involve editing the registry to do this. Hopefully you are comfortable doing this.


    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!
