A few questions, what version of out look, what are you on (a dial up, a Lan or SOHO)? If you are on a network you need to tell Outlook what server to get the mail from or a dial up or DSL you need to ask your provider what settings to use. I see that you are using XP with an HP computer.

There is a firewall blocking port 25 and 110.
check you firewall settings (software/hardware) to allow traffic from those ports.

Dear Cynthia:

Assuming that your firewall is not blocking, the first thing to determine is:

1) Does your ISP support pop download?
2) If so, then you need to get the address of
the pop and smtp servers. Sometimes this is
on their website and sometimes you just have
to call or e-mail them.
3) The next thing you need to do is open up
Outlook and click on "tools" at the top of
screen. Then click on "e-mail accounts".
4) Follow the prompts and then enter the pop
and smtp server addresses.
5) Then you should test your pop and smtp
servers to make sure they are working.

I am running Office XP Pro. Although a few
things have changed since then, the concept is basically the same. Hope this helps. Most firewalls are automatically set to configure
Ports 25 and 110 so it is not likely that you are going to have interference. It sounds like your pop and smtp server addresses just need to be set.
These are different with every ISP.

I am on dial-up, but will be on high speed this week. I am not on lan (network).

RJS is right , it isn' a firewall issue your settings for your pop3 and smtp servers need to be correc, you also need to check that your internet is working before you try to download any new mail, you will get the same errors is you have no internet connection.

This is really a QUESTION:
Customer 09/14/2006 05:37 AM
In the last 6 weeks, I lost all my Outlook Express items, including the folders. Something cleans the whole system of everything except the basic programs. I half-to copy my e-mail, Inbox, Sent items, Deleted items, Drafts, and any folders I have onto the hard drive folder every day to save them. Then I half-to copy them back after this serge of clean-up that goes on.
I never had this before, and wanted to see if there's anything I'm doing, or if there is anything I can do to stop this?

Thanks for an answer,
