Hi hanstw,
> Suddenly I cannot somehow send messages anymoer under OE.

When you do send and receive , you should be getting an error message with number like 0X8****** when the message cannot be send. Post that number here

Typically means one of a few scenarios:

 -You Are Working Offline
 -You Have Damaged Personal Folders or Personal Address Book Files
 -You Have an Outdated or Incompatible Add-in
 -You Replied to a Message from an Old Account

Solutions for these scenarios are listed in this link

Have you recently installed any new software - like anti-virus or firewall that may prevent the connection?

Hi all,
since it was a measly 50 pts, I was just going to award to the fastest finger. Typically, I would ping it first!
