Thanks for quick reply. I am using hotmail on both pc's. When I try to
receive a message the dialogue box appears however after about 5 minutes of
seeming download I get a message in Word (the format the message is sent in)
telling me it was unable to download the message.

When I try to attach I get the "page not found" error message.

Thanks

Are you accessing hotmail through IE, or through an email client? (Either
Outlook or Outlook Express?)

Then you might try poppeeper. www.poppeeper.com (It now supports sending
mail - nice feature.)
