    A likely reason for the username/password failing is account corruption.
    One thing you should try as a possible quick fix is to delete that =

    mail account, restart Windows Mail, then recreate that account.

    If that doesn't fix it, more drastic measures will have to be taken.
    Which antivirus are you running?
    As a minimum, email scanning in the antivirus must be turned off,=20
    although that may not be sufficient to eliminate all bad effects.
    In a worst case scenario, your antivirus may need to be uninstalled.

    Gary: Thanks for the response. Unbelieveably, before I could do anything
    that you suggested, the darn account started working properly. Now, when I
    go to my mail account, everything comes up as it did before the problem. I'm
    wondering if there might have been a problem at "comcast", which is my
    server. I"ll definitely print off and keep your response in the event this
    happens again.

    Perhaps it was your server hiccupping, but antivirus-related problems =
    also
    tend to be intermittent.

    Which antivirus are you running? Some of them cause problems with
    Windows Mail over time. Make sure it is not configured to scan emails.
    Email scanning in any antivirus must be disabled, for
    reasons explained here:
    http://thundercloud.net/infoave/tutorials/email-scanning/index.htm

    If turning off the email scanning function does not resolve your =
    problem,
    do a trial uninstall of your antivirus. If no improvement, you can=20
    always reinstall it. Instead of uninstalling your antivirus, consider=20

    Who gave you those settings?
    Use port 110, and do not enable SSL.

    In Windows Mail: File, Export, Messages, Microsoft Windows Mail.
    For destination choose an empty folder that is under your user profile
    on your hard drive, then copy from there to your CD.

    That's not the correct way to insert a picture in Windows Mail. Do it
    like this instead.

    1. Click on the "insert image" icon (right side of your menu options)
    2. Select the picture you want to insert.

    Its that simple.

    Sounds like your Windows Mail doesn't have all its defaults.
    Open the Default Programs applet, which you can access either from
    the Start menu or via the Control Panel, then click the first item:
    "Set your default programs."
    After a few seconds, a list of programs comes up. Click on "Windows
    Mail". If it doesn't respond with "This program has all its defaults"
    then fix it by clicking on the option indicated by the first green =
    arrow.=20

    Regarding the first (sending) error:
    If your email address ends in @insight.rr.com, why aren't you using the
    corresponding SMTP server, smtp-server.insight.rr.com?

    Regarding the second (receive) error, try using =
    pop-server.insight.rr.com
    as the incoming server.

    Do you have a PDF reader? If not, you need either of these.

    Foxit Reader:
    http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/

    Adobe Reader
    http://get.adobe.com/reader/

    Reboot after installing. If the PDF files still do not open directly from
    an e-mail, save an attachment to your HDD. Right click on it and Open With
    | Choose Program. Choose the reader you downloaded and then check the box:
    Always use this program to open this kind of file. This should enable you
    to open these attachments in the future.
