Not sure what is going on here. When i try to create an email in outlook express (just clicking new/reply) I get:
There was an error opening this message
An error has occurred
In outlook 2003 when I try and send emails, I get
Task 'account name - Sending' reported error (0x800CCC13) : ' Unable to connect to the network. Check your network connection or modem
I know the network is fine, and the SMTP port is fine, there are no antivirus / firewall software.
Done loads of reading, and one thing i came across is the possibility of bad dlls. Interestingly, my about section of outlook express lists a couple of dlls with v5.1 instead of 6.0. I followed a tip to edit the registrly to set IE and OE as not installed, and then reinstalled them both. This however made no difference.
