Hi There

I used MW years ago but just returned to it so am rusty.

When I c/on "process mail" , it correctly deletes any spam, but my friendly e-mail does not get sent to Outlook Express, have I configured it wrongly??

Wrong forum, this one is for website issues, no big deal but not many folks visit either so you might not get an answer.

There are two forums further down the list for MW issues depending on your version, v6 or 2011.

Your issue is a common one based on a misunderstanding of how MW works, it does not send mail anywhere it just previews it, deletes selected messages and launches your e-mail program.

You need to manually press the check mail button in your e-mail program or create an autoit script to press it for you to have it fetch mail. That is a design flaw in the e-mail program as there is no way for MW to tell it to check the mail.
