    Sparky,

    Did you by chance hit the Insert key on the keyboard thus turning it off?

    Did you by chance hit the Insert key on the keyboard thus turning it off?

    Sorry for the double post folks. The first one errored out and said it
    couldn't post it so I sent the second. Let's hope that is the end of it.

    When that happens, try closing and then reopening Outlook Express. You may
    have to do it more than once, however. If you find you need to do it more
    than say two times, that would indicate a problem with the server; close OE
    and wait for awhile.

    Thanks Mike. I did try that but I only did it once. The error message
    indicated the problem was with our brand new shiny server that was installed
    over the weekend so I wasn't too surprised. I waited a few minutes to see if
    the first one would eventually go through but apparently I didn't wait long
    enough.
