can you send or receive emails ?

Did you try to recreate the email account to see if it would work ?

Check with your ISP or email provider that there is no issue with your account or the server is not down ?

hi gianitoo,

What kind of antivirus and/or firewall programs do you have installed?  Try disabling them and testing the issue.  A lot of times though, just disabling them is not enough and one must fully uninstall them to resolve the issue.
