problems with my webmail and Outlook Express

I am having problems with my webmail and my Outlook Express. I am running Windows XP on my computer and Outlook Express 6. I have as my ISP and seem to have no problems connecting to the internet but it seems like the email program only works from around 1 a.m. EDT until around 7 a.m. EDT. After 7 a.m. if I go to check my webmail or try sending or receiving email using my Outlook Express, I either get a message that Internet Explorer can not display my webmail webpage or my Outlook Express can not connect to the mail server. The Outlook Express error message number is: 0x800CCC90. I tried calling the tool free number, 888-587-9669, but they don't have an option for email problems. Has anyone else had problems with their webmail and/or Outlook Express using as their ISP?

Thanks for any suggestions or help you can give to me.

I'm having the same problem

I'd like to find out how you helped the other participant with the peoplepc/outlook issue. When I sign on to peoplepc, I get the home page but no access to any other pages. Also, my outlook express function has been giving me a "can't find server" message over the past day.

Just a note.

What I 'wouldn't' do is email that person. That email address just doesn't look like an official person from PeoplePC.

Perhaps you could start your own discussion in this forum and give full details? You may get more help if anyone is around who knows.

R U still having trouble with peoplepc (PPC)hooking up to Outlook Express?. I was perfectly content with using Outlook and IE as my browser. However, PCC kept tweeking the settings. Now, I have to go to the peoplepc home page first - then click on Firefox and there to PCC webmail. I can't use my OE or IE browser now. I know I should be smarter on these things - pls help me out if u can. The "help" site on the PCC home page does not give correct settings. bob

Same problem with

In reply to: Hey Tom - or anyone?

Can't connect to people pc and over and over they tell me it is my internet explorer that don't work. Have same problem with three different computers but can't convince them they all don't have the same problem. All different programs. Now can't send an email with logos or pictures on it unless I make the email an attachment instead of direct image forward. if FORWARD DIRECT THE EMAIL IS BLANK. Can't even forward to myself and have it work correctly. They changed the webmail format a few days ago and it is worthless. They however think it is the greatest and could care less what the customer thinks. WHY DOES ANYONE SUBSCRIBE TO PEOPLEPC.COM???? Have hardly used it for a week and need to.

So does Outlook Express fade into the past.
