I am running Outlook Express on XP. Everytime I try to send a message with an image file attached to or inserted in the message it doesnt go and a server timeout message appears. Whats happening? Can anyone help me please?

I suggest for a start you put "outlook express" (with the quotes) into the search facility here at pressf1 (top right of home page) and read up the many threads that come up and sooner ot later you will come up with a link to a site that deals specifically in OE problems.

Will go away and have a look myself. :)

I'd hazard a guess at four things:

1. The picture you are sending is too big to be sent by e-mail
2. You aren't dialled up at the time you try to send.
3. Your firewall is blocking access to your mail program.
4. Your settings are incorrect.

If you have Nortons Antivirus, stop it scanning the outgoing mail.
