    I have been using Outlook Express 6 to download mail from Hotmail and look
    at Newsgroups. A few months ago It got very intermittent and used to hang
    trying to get a reply from Hotmail for ages and then tell me that "an
    unknown error has occurred" It has got worse, and now I can only get it to
    work about once every two weeks or so. The it is a big rush to put all the
    mail that has been building up into the right folders in Outlook Express on
    my Hard Disk. I re-installed Outlook Express and told it that the server
    was HTTP and not POP3 as I understand that this is a problem if you
    inadvertantly look at the mail with Messenger. I did and now I have to use
    Messenger to get at it at all. I am using Windows 98 2nd ed.

    How come it works sometimes and what can I do about this? It is taking me
    ages to convert messages to Word or whatever to save them. I just want my OE
    to work again. Someone said try Outlook 2000 is this likely to work as it is
    part of Office that I don't have?

    Thanks George.
