martin, it is having no effect, just to be sure you are saying the work off line should be left unchecked ?
Have tried it with no change. it asks me to verify user name and password XXXXX I worked with Comcast yesterday to make sure it is correct. the other error box says it does not recognize server "mail.comcast.net" w/error code 0x800ccc0d. I get another error code of " 0x800ccc92" saying logon failure.
I guess this cost me $38.00 to find out I am an idiot. left two symbols of my e-mail address. I am getting my e-mail now. thank you Martin.
you are welcome
