Why doesn't Outlook Express work with my new Internet connection?

I shifted to broadband connection a couple of months ago. I chose to keep my email address (from my previous ISP. I couldn't send email from Outlook any more, but I could still receive. Then I stopped receiving as well, (error 0x800CCCF something) so now I have to use the webmail page, which is annoying. Whatever the ISP told me wasn't helpful. Can anyone help?

    Because MS email software is crap. Buggy and very unsecure. Many evil people just like it to copy your adressbook. Outlook (Express) supports those evil people wishes.

    Try something like: Eudora Lite (or Light, so it states somewhere):

    http://www.eudora.com/download/eudora/windows/7.0....

    Or:

    http://www.oldversion.com/program.php?n=eudora

    Or change your mail server settings. That could be applicable because you changed ISP. Your ISP manual should tell you which settings.

    But i wouldn't really want to stay with MS. Do you know how to make a backup? With Eudora: it's just copy a directory. With MS, you'd probably not even find in which directory the email stored...

    Try changing the settings to use the existing Internet Explorer settings. This way if the IE is conencted successfully, so would the Outlook.

    And yes, Outlook is a crap.. try using Edura Lite 5.0 or latest. It's good.
