When I try to send an email it seems to send it normally but then no one gets
it. I have even sent one to myself and do not receive it. It shows up in the
sent folder. I thought it was a problem with my isp but when I called the man
said it was a problem with windows mail. I also tried to set it up on
microsoft outlook but it did the same thing. Can anyone help me?

It's pretty hard to diagnose this without an error message.

Have you called your ISP back to let them know the same problem
is happening with Outlook?

To narrow the problem down to your ISP, try sending through Gmail.
Get a free Gmail account: http://gmail.com
Then enable your Gmail account for POP:

Then set the account up in Windows Mail:

Those directions are for Outlook Express, but they will work for
Windows Mail.
